Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Redstone Arsenal Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix 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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of 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 away from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged period, frequent power blackouts or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing can present several backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Test your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour happens. Evaluate it by putting a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump must turn 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, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency 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 want to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers specialists mores than happy to assist with your sump pump upkeep.
