Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are designed to eliminate 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 installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of brand-new homes are geared up with sump pumps however 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.

Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped far from your house.
If your home experiences a power blackout out for an extended period, regular power failures or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your home's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
