Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Heritage Village Connecticut


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns 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 generally installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is transported into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. 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, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

A lot of 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 experts at sump pump installation and repair.

Sump Pump Installation

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