Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Stamford Connecticut


Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking 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 generally installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a border drain system installed 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 activated 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 turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

A lot of new homes are geared up with sump pumps but 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 work.

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Numerous sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped away from your home.
