Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are designed 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 point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is funnelled into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are geared up with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.
Sump Pump Installation

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's particularly crucial that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged period, frequent power outages or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
