Did you know? Sump pumps will fix 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 usually set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair work.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power failure out for a prolonged duration, regular power failures or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your house's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
