Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Pleasant Grove Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are developed 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 usually installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts 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. Lots of sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your home.
If your home experiences a power outage out for a prolonged duration, frequent power failures or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that use your home's water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can present numerous backup choices.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next big rainstorm takes place. Evaluate it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump must switch on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve move easily.
To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and lengthen 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 do not wish to do this yourself, our group of Midwest Plumbers professionals is happy to help with your sump pump maintenance.
