Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Auburn Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping 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 usually set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many new homes are geared up with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair work.

Lots of sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's particularly crucial that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power outage out for an extended duration, regular power blackouts or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
