Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Craig Alaska
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking concerns 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 typically installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated 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.
Many new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair work.

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power failure out for an extended period, regular power outages or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
