Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems 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 usually set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is directed into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most 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 experts at sump pump installation and repair work.

Numerous sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped far from your house.
If your home experiences a power blackout out for a prolonged duration, frequent power outages or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
