Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Cassville Missouri
Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns 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 usually installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes 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 switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many brand-new houses are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent 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 house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your house.
If your house experiences a power failure out for an extended duration, regular power interruptions or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that utilize your home's water system pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
