Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are created 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 space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers 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 turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many new houses are geared up 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 setup and repair.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power failure out for an extended period, frequent power blackouts or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among numerous water powered backup systems (that use your home's supply of water pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
