Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Plainfield Village Connecticut


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve 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 installed at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is funnelled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains 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 closest 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 homes are geared up with sump pumps however older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair.

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 equipped with a battery backup to ensure 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 home.

Sump Pump Maintenance

The pump should switch on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve move freely.

To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's efficiency and extend its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is devoid of obstructions so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace.
