Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Highland Park Texas


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking issues 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 usually installed at the lowest sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

The majority of new houses are equipped 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 house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's especially essential that water is pumped far from your house.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Evaluate your sump pump regularly to make sure it will operate when the next big rainstorm happens. Test it by pouring a container of water into the sump pit.
