Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Fairhope Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are developed 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 normally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of brand-new houses are equipped 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. Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power outage out for an extended duration, frequent power outages or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide a number of backup alternatives.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump routinely to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour happens. Test it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump must turn on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve relocation easily.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and lengthen its life.
