Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Elba Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are developed 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 point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is directed 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 activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair work.

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped far from your home.
If your home experiences a power failure out for a prolonged duration, frequent power interruptions or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
