What is a Sump Pump?
A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is generally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is directed into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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 only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of brand-new homes 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 experts at sump pump installation and repair.
