Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are developed 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 point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. 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 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.
Many brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped far from your home.
If your home experiences a power blackout out for a prolonged period, frequent power failures or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
