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 sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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 turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

A lot of brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair work.
