Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Knik River Alaska
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking concerns 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 normally set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes 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 switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair.

Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped far from your house.
If your home experiences a power failure out for an extended duration, frequent power interruptions or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or among lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's supply of water pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
