Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Ardmore Alabama
Did you know? 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 usually set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is funnelled into a border drain system installed 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 triggered by a float switch, removes 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 houses 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 installation and repair.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped away from your house.
If your home experiences a power blackout out for a prolonged 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 use your house's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can present numerous backup choices.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next big rainstorm occurs. Test it by pouring a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to turn on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Guarantee that the float and the check valve relocation freely.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's effectiveness and lengthen its life.
