Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are developed to remove 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 house's structure is carried into a perimeter 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 activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of 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.
