Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Caruthersville Missouri
Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking 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 typically installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a perimeter drain system set up 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 triggered by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of new houses are equipped 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 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. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a serious storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for an extended duration, regular power outages or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that use your house's water supply pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can present a number of backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big rainstorm happens. Test it by putting a container of water into the sump pit.

To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's effectiveness and lengthen its life.
