Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Indian Lake 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 typically set up at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is directed into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes 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 closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
The majority of new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's particularly crucial that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power outage out for an extended period, frequent power blackouts or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of lots of water powered backup systems (that utilize your house's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage. A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can present several backup choices.
Sump Pump Maintenance

The pump needs to turn on, eliminate the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Ensure that the float and the check valve move freely.
To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's performance and prolong its life.
