Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are developed to eliminate 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 set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers 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, gets rid of 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.
Many new homes are geared up with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair work.

Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's especially important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged period, frequent power outages or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
