Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Cottonwood Alabama


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are designed 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 generally installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. 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 nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Many 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 setup and repair work.

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 particularly crucial that water is pumped far from your house.
