Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Frankton Indiana
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking problems 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 typically set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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.
A lot of brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for a prolonged period, regular power failures or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
