Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues 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 normally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of 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 specialists at sump pump installation and repair.
