Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Trafford Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems 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 typically set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated 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.
Most 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 experts at sump pump setup and repair.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of 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 an extreme storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for an extended duration, regular power outages or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water system pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing can present a number of backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Evaluate your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour takes place. Check it by putting a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump must switch on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Make sure that the float and the check valve move easily.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's performance and extend its life. Guarantee that the discharge line opening is free of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace. If you don't wish to do this yourself, our group of Midwest Plumbers experts enjoys to help with your sump pump upkeep.
