Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Indian Springs Village Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are designed 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 typically set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a border drain system set up 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 triggered by a float switch, eliminates 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 equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists 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. 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 specifically crucial that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power outage out for an extended period, regular power blackouts or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide numerous backup alternatives.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Test your sump pump frequently to make sure it will operate when the next big rainstorm takes place. Check it by pouring a container of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, eliminate the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Make sure that the float and the check valve move easily.
To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's effectiveness and extend its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is devoid of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace. If you don't want to do this yourself, our group of Midwest Plumbers professionals is happy to assist with your sump pump maintenance.
