What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains 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 switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.
