Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Clayhatchee Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are designed 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 usually installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed 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 set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest 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 brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Numerous sump pumps are equipped 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 specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your house.
If your home experiences a power failure out for a prolonged period, regular power failures or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide a number of backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next big downpour occurs. Test it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Make sure that the float and the check valve relocation freely.
To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's effectiveness and prolong its life.
