Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are designed 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 installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest 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 houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged period, frequent power failures or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your house's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.

Sump Pump Maintenance

The pump should turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Guarantee that the float and the check valve relocation freely.
To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's performance and lengthen its life.
