Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Headland Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are developed 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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly 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 switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house'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 especially important that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for an extended period, regular power outages or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can provide several backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Test your sump pump frequently to make sure it will operate when the next huge downpour happens. Check it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump must turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Make sure 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. Make sure that the discharge line opening is devoid of obstructions 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 professionals is happy to assist with your sump pump upkeep.
