Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Eagle Pass Texas


Did you understand? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are developed to remove 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 lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is directed into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

The majority of new houses are equipped 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 work.

Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of 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 severe storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your house.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour happens. Check it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump should switch on, eliminate the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Make sure that the float and the check valve move easily.

To clean your sump pit, get rid of any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's performance and lengthen its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is free of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace.
