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 house's structure is carried into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches 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 houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.
