What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated 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 brand-new homes are equipped 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.
