Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Theodore Alabama
Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are designed 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 normally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains 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 closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals 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. Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power outage out for an extended period, regular power outages or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide a number of backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next big rainstorm takes place. Test it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump should switch on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Make sure that the float and the check valve relocation freely.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and prolong its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is devoid of blockages 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 is happy to help with your sump pump maintenance.
Sump Pump Replacement and Repair
Like any equipment with moving parts, sump pumps will wear out with time and will need to be changed. There is no basic rule on how typically a sump pump should be replaced because it depends upon how typically the pump operates. If your sump pump is not working, hire the professionals at Midwest Plumbers to examine the scenario. We also can aid with any basement leak repairs that have occurred due to a damaged sump pump.
