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 point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is directed into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit.

A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many brand-new houses 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 specialists at sump pump setup and repair.
