Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are designed to eliminate 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 lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many 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 professionals at sump pump setup and repair.

Numerous sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped far from your home.
If your home experiences a power outage out for a prolonged period, regular power interruptions or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
