Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Conning Towers Nautilus Park Connecticut


Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are designed 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 usually installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly 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 turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

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

Sump Pump Installation

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