Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are designed 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 usually set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is funnelled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair work.

Many 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 serious storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power outage out for an extended duration, regular power interruptions or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
