Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Willimantic Connecticut


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are designed to get rid of 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 usually set up at the most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

A lot of new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.

Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your home.
