What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates 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.
The majority of new homes are geared up with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair.
