Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems 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 typically installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are equipped with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.

Lots of sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your house.
