Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Jacksonville Texas
Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are developed to get rid of 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 space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a border drain system installed at the base of the structure. 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, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns 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 homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are specialists at sump pump installation and repair work.

Lots of sump pumps are equipped 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 important that water is pumped far from your home.
If your home experiences a power outage out for a prolonged duration, regular power interruptions or if your primary sump pump stops working, a battery backup sump pump or among many water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
