Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Alexander City Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are developed to eliminate 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 generally installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a border 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 activated by a float switch, eliminates 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 geared up with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for an extended duration, regular power interruptions or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
