Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are created 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 normally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is directed into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method 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 nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just 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 prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair.

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 severe storm when it's particularly crucial that water is pumped far from your house.
If your home experiences a power interruption out for an extended period, regular power failures or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
