Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Clinton Kansas


Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are created 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 generally set up at the lowest sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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 only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Most brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps however 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. Many sump pumps are geared up 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 specifically essential that water is pumped far from your house.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can present several backup alternatives.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Check your sump pump routinely to make sure it will run when the next big downpour happens. Check it by putting a container of water into the sump pit. The pump should 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 extend its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is without obstructions so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace. If you do not want to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers experts is happy to help with your sump pump maintenance.
