Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Bellamy Alabama


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are developed 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 typically set up at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes 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 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.

Most 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.

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 geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped far from your house.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can present a number of backup choices.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Test your sump pump routinely to make sure it will operate when the next huge rainstorm occurs. Check it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump must switch on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Ensure that the float and the check valve move easily.

To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's effectiveness and extend its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is without obstructions so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace. If you don't want to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers specialists is happy to assist with your sump pump upkeep.
