Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Fresh Meadows New York


Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking problems 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 repairspoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Many new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair work.
