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 usually set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way 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 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 work.
