Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Simsbury Connecticut
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are created 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 point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is funnelled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers 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, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of new homes are equipped with sump pumps however older houses 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. Lots of sump pumps are equipped 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 essential that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged period, frequent power outages or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing can provide numerous backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Evaluate your sump pump routinely to make sure it will operate when the next big rainstorm occurs. Check it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump must switch on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Make sure that the float and the check valve move easily.
To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's performance and prolong its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is without blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace.
