Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Kinsey Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping 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 generally set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is funnelled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair work.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped away from your home.
