Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Roanoke Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are created to remove 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 structure is directed into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent 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. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power outage out for an extended period, frequent power blackouts or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your house's water supply pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing can provide a number of backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Evaluate your sump pump routinely to make sure it will run when the next big downpour occurs. Test it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump should switch on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Ensure that the float and the check valve move freely.
To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and prolong 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 want to do this yourself, our group of Midwest Plumbers professionals mores than happy to assist with your sump pump upkeep.
