Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Orange Beach Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking problems 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 normally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a perimeter 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 triggered 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 new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair.
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 ensure 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 house.
If your home experiences a power outage out for an extended period, regular power failures or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that use your house's water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can provide a number of backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next huge rainstorm occurs. Test it by pouring a container of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to turn on, eliminate the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Guarantee that the float and the check valve relocation easily.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's effectiveness and prolong its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is free of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace. If you don't wish to do this yourself, our group of Midwest Plumbers specialists mores than happy to help with your sump pump maintenance.
