Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are designed to remove 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 normally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. 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, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many new homes 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 experts at sump pump installation and repair work.

Lots of 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 specifically crucial that water is pumped far from your home.
