Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Childersburg Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are developed to eliminate 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 space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. 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, 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.
Many new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older homes 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 geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's especially crucial that water is pumped away from your house.
