Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Smoke Rise Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping problems 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 lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. 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 nearby 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 homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.

Numerous 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 specifically important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power interruption out for an extended duration, frequent power outages or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
