Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Greene New York


Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are designed to get rid of 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 typically installed at the most affordable sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Many new houses are geared up with sump pumps but 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 work.
