Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Freer Texas


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are designed to get rid of 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 installed at the most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is transported into a perimeter 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, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

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

Numerous sump pumps are equipped 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 important that water is pumped far from your home.

Evaluate your sump pump frequently to make sure it will run when the next big rainstorm occurs. Test it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Guarantee that the float and the check valve move freely.
