Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Gordon Heights 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 typically installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates 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 new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts 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 ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your home.
If your home experiences a power failure out for a prolonged duration, regular power blackouts or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage.

Sump Pump Maintenance
Evaluate your sump pump frequently to make sure it will run when the next big downpour occurs. Test it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit.

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