Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Brookfield Connecticut


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are developed to get rid of 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 installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is carried into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes 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.

Many brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.
