Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Hayden Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems 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 usually set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way 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 nearby 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 houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.

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 throughout a severe storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for an extended duration, frequent power failures or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your home's supply of water pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
