Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Grape Creek Texas


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking concerns 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 set up at the most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drainpipes 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 closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

The majority of new houses 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 setup and repair.
