Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Winchester Connecticut


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are developed 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 lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. 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 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

A lot of 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 installation 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 equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped far from your home.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can present numerous backup choices.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Check your sump pump routinely to make sure it will operate when the next big rainstorm takes place. Check it by pouring a container of water into the sump pit. The pump must switch on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Guarantee that the float and the check valve relocation easily.

To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's effectiveness and extend its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is free of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace. If you don't want to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers experts is happy to assist with your sump pump upkeep.
