Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Leroy Kansas

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is normally set up at the most affordable sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit.

A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

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