Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Groton Long Point Connecticut


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are designed to eliminate 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 set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is carried into a border drain system set up 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, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

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

Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's especially important that water is pumped away from your house.
