What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly 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 closest 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 houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair work.
