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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is transported into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered 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.
Most brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair work.

Numerous sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped far from your home.
