Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Bethel Connecticut
Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve 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 usually installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearby 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 new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home'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 an extreme storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power failure out for a prolonged duration, regular power blackouts or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's supply of water pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing can present numerous backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Test your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big rainstorm occurs. Evaluate it by putting a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump should switch on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Make sure that the float and the check valve relocation freely.
To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and extend its life. Guarantee that the discharge line opening is without obstructions 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 team of Midwest Plumbers specialists enjoys to assist with your sump pump maintenance.
Sump Pump Replacement and Repair
Like any devices with moving parts, sump pumps will break in time and will have to be replaced. There is no basic rule on how frequently a sump pump need to be replaced considering that it depends on how frequently the pump runs. If your sump pump is not working, hire the professionals at Midwest Plumbers to assess the situation. We also can aid with any basement leak repairs that have occurred due to a broken sump pump.
