Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are designed 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 generally installed at the most affordable point 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 foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearby 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 equipped with sump pumps however 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.

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 particularly essential that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power interruption out for an extended duration, frequent power outages or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water system pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
