Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Monroeville Alabama


Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are developed 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 normally set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers 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, gets rid of 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.

The majority of new homes are geared up 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 setup and repair work.
