Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Hermleigh Texas


Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are designed 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 usually set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is channeled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest 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 brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump setup and repair.
