Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are created 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 lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly 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.

The majority of new homes 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 setup and repair.
