Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Dry Point Illinois
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking 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 typically installed 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 quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most brand-new homes are equipped 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 setup and repair.

Lots of sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power failure out for a prolonged duration, frequent power outages or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your house's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
