What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.

A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most brand-new homes 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 specialists at sump pump installation and repair.
