Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Fowler Colorado
Did you know? 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 generally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly 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 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.
Most new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair.

If your house experiences a power interruption out for an extended duration, frequent power interruptions or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water supply pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
