Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are created 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 normally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of 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 professionals at sump pump installation and repair.
