Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Good Hope Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues 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 normally installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation 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 quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates 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.
Many new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for an extended duration, regular power outages or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that use your home's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can provide numerous backup choices.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Test your sump pump routinely to make sure it will operate when the next huge rainstorm happens. Check it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn 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, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's effectiveness and extend its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is without blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace.
