Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Greenville Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are developed to remove 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 typically set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a perimeter drain system set up 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 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.
Many new houses are equipped 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.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped away from your house.
If your home experiences a power blackout out for an extended period, frequent power failures or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that use your house's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide several backup alternatives.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Evaluate your sump pump routinely to make sure it will run when the next huge rainstorm happens. Check it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure 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 performance and prolong its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is free of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace. If you do not wish to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers experts mores than happy to assist with your sump pump upkeep.
Sump Pump Replacement and Repair
Like any equipment with moving parts, sump pumps will break gradually and will need to be changed. There is no general rule on how frequently a sump pump need to be replaced because it depends upon how often the pump operates. If your sump pump is not working, hire the specialists at Midwest Plumbers to examine the scenario. We also can aid with any basement leak repairs that have actually occurred due to a broken sump pump.
