Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Frost Texas
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking issues 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 lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
A lot of brand-new houses are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair work.

Lots of sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout an extreme storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped far from your home.
If your house experiences a power blackout out for an extended duration, frequent power interruptions or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that use your home's supply of water pressure to get rid of water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.
