Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Fairview Kansas


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking issues 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 typically set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers 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, 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.

A lot of brand-new houses 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.
