Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Lafayette Alabama


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are created to eliminate 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 set up at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest 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 brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.
