Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are designed to eliminate 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 typically installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is funnelled into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

The majority of new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair.
