Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are designed 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 usually installed at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns 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 avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair work.
