Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems 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 typically installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. 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, removes 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.
The majority of new homes are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair.

Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your home.
If your home experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged period, regular power outages or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
