Sump Pump Workings in Cornettsville, KY
As water fills up the sump pit hole, the sump pump kicks on and begins pumping it out through various interconnected pipes. Sump pumps can drain into the house's primary water drainage system, or drain directly outdoors away from the foundation of the home. Pro Drainage Solutions keeps your basement itself from getting flooded, because the water is actually diverted into the hole and then moved out by the sump pump.
Sump pumps generally have a float which triggers them to turn on and off. When the water rises in the sump pit hole, the sump pump float rises as well. When that float reaches a certain height, the sump pump conveniently turns on and starts pumping the excess water out.
Sump Pump Electrical
Pro Drainage Solutions installs Sump pumps wired into a house's main electrical system, but it's important for us to include some kind of power backup as well. Many sump pumps in Cornettsville, KY use car style batteries as a power backup, but if you don't like the idea of having a battery in your basement, we can install a sump pump that is run off the water pressure in your home.
Regardless of what type of backup power system you choose for your sump pump, Pro Drainage Solutions will be sure there actually is a backup. Sump pumps are necessary during storms and flooding, and these are typical times for the electricity to go out as well. If the electrical power goes out and the sump pump doesn't have a backup power source, it will not be able to counter flooding in your basement.
Sump Pump Size
Some people use a five gallon bucket for their sump pit, Pro Drainage Solutions feels this can in fact cause problems in the long run because there is not enough room for the sump pump to work properly. In Cornettsville, KY, Pro Drainage Solutions makes sure your sump pit is at least 18 inches across and 22 inches or more deep can keep this problem from happening.
