Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are designed 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 normally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates 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.
Many brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair.
Sump Pump Installation

Lots of sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's especially important that water is pumped away from your house.
If your home experiences a power interruption out for an extended period, frequent power outages or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that use your home's water supply pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
