Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Russellville Alabama


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are designed 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 usually set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is carried into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of 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 equipped 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 work.

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 a serious storm when it's especially crucial that water is pumped away from your home.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing can present numerous backup choices.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Test your sump pump routinely to make sure it will operate when the next huge rainstorm occurs. Test it by pouring a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Guarantee that the float and the check valve move freely.

To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's efficiency and prolong its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is free of obstructions so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace. If you don't want to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers experts enjoys to help with your sump pump upkeep.

Sump Pump Replacement and Repair

Like any equipment with moving parts, sump pumps will wear out with time and will have to be replaced. There is no general guideline on how typically a sump pump should be changed given that it depends upon how frequently the pump operates. If your sump pump is not working, call in the specialists at Midwest Plumbers to evaluate the scenario. We also can assist with any basement leak repairs that have actually taken place due to a damaged sump pump.
