Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping concerns 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 foundation is transported into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair.
