Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Homer Alaska


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues 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 generally installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest 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 brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation 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 equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your home.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can present numerous backup alternatives.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next huge downpour occurs. Check it by pouring a container of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to turn on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Guarantee that the float and the check valve move freely.

To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's efficiency and extend its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is without blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace. If you do not want to do this yourself, our group of Midwest Plumbers experts is happy to assist with your sump pump upkeep.
