Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Satsuma Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking concerns 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 set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates 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.
The majority of 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 professionals at sump pump setup and repair.

Numerous sump pumps are equipped 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 important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power failure out for an extended duration, regular power outages or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
