Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are designed to get rid of 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 usually installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates 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.
The majority of new houses are geared up with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair.

Many 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 crucial that water is pumped away from your house.
