Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking concerns 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 typically set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is carried into a boundary drain system set up 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 set off by a float switch, eliminates 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.
A lot of new houses are geared up with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair.
