Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking 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 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 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, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of new homes are geared up with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair work.

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 throughout a severe storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped far from your home.
