What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered 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 turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.
