Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Prattville Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are designed 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 typically installed at the lowest point 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 foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly 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 only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new houses 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 experts at sump pump installation 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 equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power outage out for an extended period, regular power interruptions or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water supply pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
