Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs East Peoria Illinois
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are designed 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 generally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of brand-new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped far from your house.
If your home experiences a power failure out for a prolonged period, regular power failures or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide several backup alternatives.

To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and extend its life.
