Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Mount Olive Alabama


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping 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 sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated 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 only 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.
