Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs New Haven Connecticut


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are developed to eliminate 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 most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method 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 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.

Most new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump setup and repair.

Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house'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 severe storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped away from your house.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can provide several backup choices.

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 must switch on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve move easily.

To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's efficiency and prolong its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is without blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace. If you don't want to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers experts enjoys to help with your sump pump maintenance.

Sump Pump Replacement and Repair

Like any equipment with moving parts, sump pumps will wear over time and will have to be replaced. There is no basic rule on how often a sump pump need to be changed considering that it depends on how often the pump operates. If your sump pump is not working, hire the specialists at Midwest Plumbers to assess the situation. We also can help with any basement leakage repair works that have occurred due to a broken sump pump.
