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 lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest 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 new houses 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.
