Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Opelika Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are designed to get rid of 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 space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many brand-new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals 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. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged period, frequent power interruptions or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can present numerous backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next huge downpour happens. Check it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump ought to switch on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Guarantee that the float and the check valve move freely.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's efficiency and prolong its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is without blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace. If you don't wish to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers professionals is happy to assist with your sump pump maintenance.
