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 funnelled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.

A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair.
