Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Evergreen Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are created 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 set up 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 discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are geared up with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair.

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 a severe storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your house.
If your home experiences a power interruption out for an extended period, regular power failures or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
