Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix 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 lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly 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.

Many new houses are geared up with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbing plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair work.
