Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Fairfield Indiana
Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are developed 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 typically installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but 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.
