Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Fultondale Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are designed 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 set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is transported into a boundary drain system set up 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, eliminates the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many 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 specialists 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 geared up 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 particularly essential that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for an extended duration, frequent power blackouts or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can present several backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance

The pump needs to switch on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Guarantee that the float and the check valve move freely.
To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and lengthen its life.
