Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are developed to get rid of 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 generally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates 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 brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for an extended duration, frequent power interruptions or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
