Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Preston Connecticut


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns 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 installed at the most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Many brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair work.
