Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs La Fayette Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are developed 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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a perimeter 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, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearby 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 equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair.

Many sump pumps are equipped 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 important that water is pumped far from your house.
If your home experiences a power outage out for an extended period, frequent power blackouts or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your house's supply of water pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
