Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are developed 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 foundation is carried into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated 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 brand-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 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. 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 during a serious storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped away from your house.
If your home experiences a power failure out for an extended period, regular power outages or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can present several backup choices.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Evaluate your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next big downpour occurs. Evaluate it by putting a bucket of water into the sump pit.
