What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes 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.
The majority of new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.
