Drainage Solutions for Your Lawn & Foundation Using Sump Pumps
If you have a flat yard or one that slopes downward, it is likely that you will experience probelms such as standing water, a soggy lawn or even flooding. In Texas many foundations sit where parts of the house are below the water level, and simply water from the spinklers can build up causing damage.
As a solution to this problem, our drainage experts can install a sump pump. Sump pumps are generally hardwired into a home’s electrical system and pump water away from the home to a safe place like a dry well or a municipal storm drain.
How Do Sump Pumps Work?
Sump pumps contain a sump basin which collects water around the foundation or in the basement of a home. Using either electricity or a pressurized water supply, it then sends the water away from the house by pumping it into a dry well or municipal storm drain.
Types of Sump Pumps
- Pedestal: With this pump, the motor is mounted above the sump, making for easier service.
- Submersible: This is entirely mounted inside the sump, and this type of pump can be completely submersed. The pump is sealed to prevent short circuits.
