Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Bridgeport Alabama


Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are designed 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 generally set up at the most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Most brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your house.
