Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are designed to eliminate 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 installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a boundary drain system set up 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 closest 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 houses are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.

Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's especially crucial that water is pumped away from your house.
If your home experiences a power blackout out for an extended duration, frequent power interruptions or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
