Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Woodbury Center Connecticut


Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are developed 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 generally set up at the most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains 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.

The majority of brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair.

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped far from your home.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Test your sump pump frequently to make sure it will run when the next big rainstorm happens. Check it by pouring a container of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to switch on, remove 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, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's effectiveness and lengthen its life.
