Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns 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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure 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 triggered 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of new homes are geared up with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair.
Sump Pump Installation

Many 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 serious storm when it's especially important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power outage out for an extended period, frequent power blackouts or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among numerous water powered backup systems (that use your home's supply of water pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
