Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are designed to remove 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 set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of brand-new homes are equipped 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 installation and repair.
