Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Aliceville Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are created 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 generally installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains 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 closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most brand-new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.

Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged duration, frequent power interruptions or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
