Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Hidalgo Texas
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are created 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 generally installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is funnelled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is quickly 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 just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Many 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 installation and repair.

Numerous sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your house.
