Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Driscoll Texas


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are created 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 normally installed at the most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is channeled into a border drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated 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 switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Many new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair work.
