Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Council Grove Kansas


Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are developed 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 servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is transported into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is quickly 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 brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists 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 guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's especially crucial that water is pumped away from your house.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can provide a number of backup options.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Test your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next big rainstorm occurs. Check it by pouring a pail of water into the sump pit. The pump needs to switch on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Guarantee that the float and the check valve move freely.

To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and prolong its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is devoid of obstructions 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 group of Midwest Plumbers professionals is happy to assist with your sump pump upkeep.
