Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Empire Illinois
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are designed 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 generally installed at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates 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 but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power failure out for an extended period, regular power blackouts or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can provide numerous backup alternatives.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Test your sump pump frequently to make sure it will run when the next big downpour happens. Test it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump must turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Ensure that the float and the check valve move easily.
