Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are developed to remove 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 lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches 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 prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.
