Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Erwin New York


Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are developed 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 set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

A lot of brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair.
