Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are created to remove water from basements and crawlspaces.
What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is generally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is carried into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of brand-new homes are geared up with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair work.

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's especially important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power failure out for a prolonged period, frequent power blackouts or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that use your house's water supply pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
