Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Mobile Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are developed 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 usually set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated 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 only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most 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 setup and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Numerous 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 especially important that water is pumped far from your home.
If your home experiences a power outage out for a prolonged period, frequent power blackouts or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can provide numerous backup alternatives.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next huge downpour occurs. Evaluate it by putting a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump must switch on, eliminate the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve relocation easily.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's effectiveness and lengthen its life.
