Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Greensboro Alabama


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are created 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 generally set up at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is quickly 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 closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Most brand-new homes are geared up with sump pumps however 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 work.
