Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs North Granby Connecticut


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are created 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 normally set up at the most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Most new homes 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 experts 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. Lots of sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped far from your home.

A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide several backup alternatives.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Check your sump pump frequently to make sure it will run when the next big downpour happens. Check it by putting a container of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Ensure that the float and the check valve move easily.

To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and lengthen its life. Ensure 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 wish to do this yourself, our group of Midwest Plumbers specialists enjoys to assist with your sump pump maintenance.

Sump Pump Replacement and Repair
