What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is generally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house'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 activated 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 switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair work.
