Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Harpersville Alabama


Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve 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 installed at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is carried into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers 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, removes 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 geared up with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.

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 guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's especially crucial that water is pumped far from your home.
