Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Tuscaloosa Alabama


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are developed 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 normally installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed 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, 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.

Most brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists 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. Many sump pumps are equipped 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 particularly important that water is pumped far from your home.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can provide numerous backup choices.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Evaluate your sump pump frequently to make sure it will operate when the next huge downpour happens. Evaluate it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Make sure that the float and the check valve move freely.

To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's performance and lengthen its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is free of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace. If you don't wish to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers experts mores than happy to help with your sump pump maintenance.

Sump Pump Replacement and Repair

Like any equipment with moving parts, sump pumps will wear out gradually and will have to be changed. There is no basic guideline on how often a sump pump need to be replaced since it depends on how often the pump runs. If your sump pump is not working, employ the specialists at Midwest Plumbers to evaluate the scenario. We also can aid with any basement leakage repair works that have actually happened due to a damaged sump pump.
