Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking 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 installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a perimeter 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 set off by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.

Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged duration, frequent power failures or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
