Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are developed 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 generally installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered 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 only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Most new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair.
