Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Ardmore Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are designed 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 set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a boundary 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 set off 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 only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.
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 equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's especially important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power failure out for a prolonged duration, frequent power interruptions or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water system pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
