Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Eustace Texas
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are designed 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 typically set up at the most affordable point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is carried into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly 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 only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent 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 home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's particularly essential that water is pumped far from your house.
If your house experiences a power failure out for an extended period, regular power outages or if your main sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's supply of water pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can provide several backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Check your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next huge downpour occurs. Check it by putting a container of water into the sump pit. The pump ought to turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Make sure that the float and the check valve move freely.
To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and extend its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is free of obstructions so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace. If you don't want to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers specialists enjoys to assist with your sump pump maintenance.
Sump Pump Replacement and Repair
Like any devices with moving parts, sump pumps will wear with time and will need to be changed. There is no basic rule on how often a sump pump should be replaced because it depends on how typically the pump runs. If your sump pump is not working, employ the experts at Midwest Plumbers to assess the situation. We also can assist with any basement leak repair works that have actually taken place due to a damaged sump pump.
