What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is generally set up at the most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby 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 new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair.
