Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Sheffield Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping 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 usually installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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.
Many 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.
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 an extreme storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for an extended duration, regular power outages or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can provide a number of backup options.

Test your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next huge rainstorm takes place. Check it by putting a container of water into the sump pit.

To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's performance and extend its life.
