Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Bessemer Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems 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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes 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 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.
Many new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup 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 ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped far from your house.
If your home experiences a power failure out for a prolonged period, regular power failures or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your house's water supply pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide several backup choices.

To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's performance and extend its life.
