Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs New Hartford Connecticut


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping 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 normally installed at the lowest sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled 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 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 switches on only 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 prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair.
