Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are created 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 normally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair.
