Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Cherokee Kansas


Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are designed to get rid of 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 installed at the lowest sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly 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.

Most brand-new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair.
