Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Coldspring New York


Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are designed 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 space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, gets rid of 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.

The majority of 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 home'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 particularly essential that water is pumped far from your home.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Test your sump pump routinely to make sure it will run when the next big downpour occurs. Test it by putting a container of water into the sump pit. The pump must turn on, eliminate 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 effectiveness and prolong its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is free of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace.
