Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are developed to remove 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 installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes 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.

Most new homes are geared up with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.
