Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are developed 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 typically installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of 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 experts at sump pump installation and repair.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for a prolonged period, regular power blackouts or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of 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.
