Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are created 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 typically installed at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains 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.

A lot of brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps but 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.

Lots of sump pumps are equipped 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 essential that water is pumped away from your house.
