Fortunately in Texas we do not have basements that require sump pumps, however it has become much more common to have Sump Pumps installed in commercial and residential use for different purposes. Most commonly you will find a sump pump beneath a pier and beam structure, a deck, or in some french drain applications.
Did your sump pump quit working? Or perhaps you’re a local business owner and your sump pump suddenly put your business in a sticky situation?
Having access to reputable sump pump repair services in this type of situation is extremely beneficial, because the sooner you can get someone out to deal with the problem, the sooner your sump pump will be working again and doing what it is supposed to do.
Why You May Need a Sump Pump
Sump pumps are electric pumps that are often times found positioned in your basement, however more commonly in Texas these pumps are used beneath pier and beam structures or decks and are used to pump water out during flooding or if there is excess water around the house. Some homes are built with a low water table or with poor natural drainage that encourages flooding during big storms or prolonged rainy periods. Sump pumps work well for removing this water, and for relieving pressure that builds up behind the foundation walls, known as hydrostatic pressure.
Is My Sump Pump Broken?
Since the sump pump runs on electricity and pumps water, there is always the potential for problems to occur. If there is a power outage or a short in the electrical circuitry, you could end up with a power supply problem. The motor could burn out or the pumping mechanism could malfunction, decreasing the performance factor even more. If you notice that the power isn’t on or if the pump isn’t providing the drainage it normally does, call for help to find out the nature of the problem.
Go With Professional Sump Pump Installation
Keeping your sump pump working for those times you really need it is critical, which is why the DIY repair approach can backfire sometimes. If you aren’t an experienced, qualified service provider, you may end up damaging the system even more or if it was an installation, it may not be installed according to your local building codes or it could be installed improperly and not to specifications that could lead to damage of equipment or your home or business. In either case, the result will require a professional to come in and fix it after the fact, so considering the importance of your home or equipment, having it done right the first time is the best way to go.
