Sump Pumps in Richardson, TX
When professionally installed and serviced by an experienced plumber, a sump pump is a great solution for many homes throughout Richardson, TX and beyond. This system is a small water pump, placed within a hole at the lowest point of your home—almost always the basement. It’s designed to remove water from that location by using a drainage pipe before the water has the opportunity to flood your basement and home.
Most homeowners who choose to have a sump pump installation done do so as insurance against potential flooding. After all, if you have a finished basement or if you are using your basement for storage, then flooding can be detrimental to your home. To learn more about sump pumps and how a system would benefit you, contact the service professionals at Earthwise Home Services.
How Sump Pumps Work
A sump pump installation starts with digging a pit in your basement or the lowest point of your home. The pit itself is what is called the sump. The pump is then installed either in or directly above the sump, with a pipe leading from the pump out of the house.
When water infiltrates this area, it will naturally flow downhill and into the sump. Then, when the water level gets high enough, the sump pump will activate and pump all the excess water out of your home.
