Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Wedowee Alabama
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix 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 most affordable point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes 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 nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of new houses are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair work.
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 ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's particularly crucial that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for a prolonged period, frequent power blackouts or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing can present a number of backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Evaluate your sump pump routinely to make sure it will run when the next huge rainstorm takes place. Check it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to turn on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve move easily.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and prolong its life. Ensure 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 do not wish to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers experts enjoys to assist with your sump pump upkeep.
