What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is typically set up at the lowest 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 discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly 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 nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair.
