Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Middlefield Connecticut
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are developed 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 point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is funnelled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered 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.
A lot of brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair work.

Many sump pumps are equipped 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 specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power failure out for an extended period, regular power outages or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
