Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Branford Connecticut


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are created 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 normally installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is transported into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, gets rid of 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 brand-new houses are geared up 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 installation and repair work.

Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped far from your house.
