Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking issues 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 set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is carried into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly 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 only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of brand-new homes are geared up with sump pumps but 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.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power failure out for a prolonged duration, frequent power outages or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide several backup options.
