Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Fairbanks Alaska


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking issues 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 typically installed at the most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a perimeter drain system installed 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 triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest 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 but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair work.
