Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Littleville Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are designed to remove 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 space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest 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 but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for an extended duration, frequent power failures or if your main sump pump fails, 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 safeguard your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can present several backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next huge downpour happens. Evaluate it by pouring a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve move easily.
To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's performance and lengthen its life. Guarantee 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 do not want to do this yourself, our group of Midwest Plumbers specialists enjoys to help with your sump pump upkeep.
Sump Pump Replacement and Repair

If your sump pump is not working, call in the professionals at Midwest Plumbers to evaluate the scenario. We also can help with any basement leak repairs that have happened due to a damaged sump pump.
