Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Opp Alabama


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are developed 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 typically installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is directed into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

The majority of brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped far from your home.
