What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is generally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of 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 experts at sump pump installation and repair work.
