Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Malvern Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are designed 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 generally installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is directed into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains 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 nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid 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 equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power outage out for a prolonged period, regular power blackouts or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide a number of backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Evaluate your sump pump frequently to make sure it will run when the next big downpour happens. Test it by pouring a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, remove 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 debris to increase the pump's efficiency and extend its life.
