Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Cowarts Alabama


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are created to remove 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 set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

A lot of 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 experts at sump pump setup and repair work.

Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped far from your home.
