Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are developed 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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains 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 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.
Many new homes 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.
