Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Allgood Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are created 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 generally installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of new houses are equipped 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 installation and repair.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of 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 especially crucial that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for a prolonged duration, regular power failures or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can provide a number of backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Test your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big rainstorm occurs. Evaluate it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to turn on, eliminate the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve relocation freely.
To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's effectiveness and lengthen its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is without blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace. If you don't wish to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers specialists enjoys to help with your sump pump upkeep.
