Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Jonestown Texas
Did you know? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping problems as they are created 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 installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is carried into a boundary drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, gets rid of the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are equipped with sump pumps however 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 home's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of 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 especially important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for an extended period, regular power blackouts or if your main 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 get rid of water from the sump pit) will protect your basement from water damage.
