Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Hobson City Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping 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 usually installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. 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 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.
A lot of new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.

Numerous sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power failure out for a prolonged duration, frequent power outages or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's supply of water pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.
