Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Grape Creek Texas
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems 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 set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes 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.
Many new homes are geared up 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.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your house.
If your home experiences a power outage out for an extended duration, regular power blackouts or if your primary sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that use your house's water supply pressure to eliminate water from the sump pit) will safeguard your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumber can present several backup options.
Sump Pump Maintenance
