Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Ardmore Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are developed 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 normally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of 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.
The majority of brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair.

Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped far from your house.
If your home experiences a power blackout out for an extended period, regular power blackouts or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
