Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Stonington Connecticut


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping 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 generally set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds 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, removes 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 but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.
