Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Highland Lakes Alabama


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are created 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 most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes 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 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.

The majority of brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.

Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your house.
