Advanced Basement Solutions offers basement sump pump drainage installation services in Weston, CT an surrounding areas of Fairfield County. These services involve the installation of a sump pump and an associated drainage system in a basement to prevent water from accumulating and causing damage. Here’s an overview of the components and the installation process:
- Sump Pump:
- A sump pump is a device installed in a pit (sump pit) in the basement floor.
- It is designed to pump out accumulated water to prevent flooding.
- Sump pumps are typically electrically powered and may have a backup power source in case of electrical failures.
- Sump Pit Installation:
- The first step is to excavate a pit in the lowest part of the basement floor, known as the sump pit.
- The size of the pit may vary depending on the type and capacity of the sump pump being installed.
- Drainage System Installation:
- Perforated pipes, also known as weeping tiles, are installed around the perimeter of the basement floor or in areas where water tends to accumulate.
- These pipes collect water and redirect it towards the sump pit.
- Sump Pump Installation:
- The sump pump is placed inside the sump pit.
- It is connected to the drainage system, and its float switch or pressure sensor activates the pump when the water level in the pit reaches a certain point.
- Discharge Pipe Installation:
- A discharge pipe is connected to the sump pump to carry the pumped water away from the foundation and basement.
- The pipe usually extends to the exterior of the building, directing water away from the foundation to prevent it from re-entering.
- Backup Systems (Optional):
- Some installations may include a battery-powered backup sump pump or a water-powered backup system to ensure continued functionality during power outages or pump failures.
