Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Hollins Alabama


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are designed 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 typically installed at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Many new houses are geared up with sump pumps however older homes 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 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 make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped away from your house.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Check your sump pump routinely to make sure it will run when the next big downpour happens. Test it by putting a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to turn on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve move easily.

To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and extend its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is free of obstructions so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace.
