Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Fargo Kansas


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems 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 usually set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is directed into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

The majority of brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair work.

Sump Pump Installation

Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's especially important that water is pumped away from your house.
