Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are developed 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 typically installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a border 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 triggered 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.
Many new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.
Sump Pump Installation

Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power failure out for a prolonged duration, frequent power blackouts or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among numerous water powered backup systems (that use your home's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
