Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Essex Connecticut


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping 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 foundation is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Most 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 installation and repair.
