Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Alexandria Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are designed to remove 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 home's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Numerous sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's especially crucial that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for an extended duration, frequent power blackouts or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can present a number of backup alternatives.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next big rainstorm happens. Test it by pouring a container of water into the sump pit. The pump must turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Make sure that the float and the check valve move freely.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's efficiency and extend its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is without blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace. If you don't want to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers specialists is happy to assist with your sump pump maintenance.
