Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Dearborn Michigan
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking 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 generally installed at the most affordable point 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 structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's particularly crucial that water is pumped far from your house.
