Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Pickensville Alabama


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems 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 normally set up at the lowest sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Many new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent 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 ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your home.

A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide several backup choices.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Evaluate your sump pump frequently to make sure it will operate when the next big rainstorm takes place. Test it by putting a container of water into the sump pit. The pump must switch on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Make sure that the float and the check valve move easily.

To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's effectiveness and lengthen its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is devoid of 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 group of Midwest Plumbers professionals is happy to assist with your sump pump maintenance.
