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 sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearby 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 new houses are geared up with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Evaluate your sump pump routinely to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour happens. Check it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit.
