Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Elk Grove Illinois
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are created 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 typically installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method 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 closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for an extended period, frequent power blackouts or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's supply of water pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
