Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs South Woodstock Connecticut
Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are designed 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 point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a perimeter drain system installed 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 activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation 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 geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power failure out for an extended period, frequent power blackouts or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water system pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
