Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Brookwood Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are created 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 normally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is carried into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many 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 experts at sump pump installation and repair.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's especially important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged duration, frequent power blackouts or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water system pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
