Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are created 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 usually set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, gets rid of 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.
Many new homes are geared up with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair work.

Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power outage out for an extended duration, frequent power outages or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water system pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
