Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Barrow Alaska


Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are designed to get rid of 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 generally installed at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Most new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair.

Sump Pump Installation

Lots of sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped far from your house.
