What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is typically installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Many new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair work.
