Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Brooklyn Connecticut
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping issues 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 set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals 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. Numerous sump pumps are geared up 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 particularly important that water is pumped away from your house.
If your home experiences a power blackout out for an extended duration, frequent power failures or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of numerous water powered backup systems (that use your house's water system pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can present several backup choices.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Test your sump pump frequently to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour takes place. Evaluate it by pouring a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Ensure that the float and the check valve relocation freely.
To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's efficiency and lengthen its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is free of obstructions so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace. If you don't wish to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers specialists is happy to help with your sump pump upkeep.
Sump Pump Replacement and Repair
Like any equipment with moving parts, sump pumps will break over time and will need to be changed. There is no general guideline on how often a sump pump should be changed since it depends on how typically the pump operates. If your sump pump is not working, call in the experts at Midwest Plumbers to examine the scenario. We also can aid with any basement leakage repairs that have actually taken place due to a damaged sump pump.
