What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, gets rid of 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.
The majority 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 professionals at sump pump setup and repair.
