What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates 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 brand-new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair.
