Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Georgetown Colorado
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking 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 typically installed at the lowest point 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 discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, gets rid of 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.
Many new houses are geared up with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for an extended period, frequent power blackouts or if your primary 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 remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can provide numerous backup alternatives.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Evaluate your sump pump frequently to make sure it will operate when the next huge rainstorm occurs. Check it by putting a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump must turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve move easily.
