Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Hollywood Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are created 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 normally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is funnelled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way 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 nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of new houses are equipped 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 installation and repair.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Numerous sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power failure out for an extended duration, frequent power blackouts or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can provide a number of backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump routinely to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour takes place. Check it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit.
