Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Brighton Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are developed 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 usually installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly 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 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.
Many new homes are geared up 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.

Numerous 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 serious storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped far from your home.
If your home experiences a power outage out for a prolonged duration, regular power failures or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
