Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Autaugaville Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are created to eliminate 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 set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most 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 experts at sump pump setup and repair work.

Many sump pumps are equipped 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 important that water is pumped away from your home.
