Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Choccolocco Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking issues 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 generally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is directed into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains 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 nearest 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 however older homes 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 guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's especially crucial that water is pumped far from your house.
If your home experiences a power blackout out for a prolonged duration, frequent power outages or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
