Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Tillmans Corner Alabama


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are created 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 installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is transported into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest 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 houses are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.

Numerous sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped far from your home.
