Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are designed 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 set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes 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 nearby 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 equipped 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 installation and repair.

Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power outage out for a prolonged period, frequent power outages or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of many 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.
