Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Oneonta Alabama


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems 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 typically set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates 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.

A lot of brand-new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.
