Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Elmore Alabama


Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are developed 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 most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of 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 brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.
