The Need of Sump Pumps in Houston

Most homes in the Houston area are built on slabs of concrete, making them sit above the water table. However, Houston is severely prone to flooding. The properties that reside in those places should consider a sump pump to assist in the removal of water. To prevent high moisture content underneath your foundation, we recommend installing a sump pump. You can install a sump pump under the foundation or in the basement. For most Houston property owners, below the foundation is the most likely place. For those with existing sump pumps, we can perform any sump pump repairs you may require.

Sump Pump Repairs We Offer

Sump pumps are a beneficial appliance to have for your home or business if it resides in a flooding zone in Houston. Your sump pump is likely installed beneath your foundation, where it prevents water from damaging your property. However, your sump pump can run into problems when pumping water away from your foundation. These problems range from poor efficiency to complete malfunction. When your sump pump stops working, reach out to ASAP Plumbing Experts for any of the following repairs:

  • Power failure
  • Improper installation
  • Stuck sump pump switch
  • Continuously runs
  • Clogged sump pump
  • Leaking sump pump
  • And more!


Types of Sump Pumps We Service

There are two primary types of sump pumps our team is able to service: submersible pumps and pedestal pumps. Submersible sump pumps operate while completely submerged in water, including the motor. These pumps operate more quietly, take up less space, and are ideal for basements. As for pedestal pumps, it stands upright where the motor is not designed to get wet. The pump with an impeller is at the base of the pedestal to remove the water. These sump pumps are more affordable, and their repairs are easier to make since the motor is above the water. Regardless of the sump pump you have, our team is capable of installing or repairing either. We have the expertise to make any repair your sump pump may be experiencing.

How Do Sump Pumps Work?

By knowing how a sump pump works, you can understand what types of problems you may experience. Here is how your sump pump works on your property:

  1. Sump pumps are located in crawl spaces or basements, typically against the wall in the corner.
  2. Groundwater collects around your foundation or basement floor, which flows through drain pipes around the building to the sump pump basin.
  3. Once the water reaches a certain level, the sump pump turns on.
  4. The impeller inside the sump pump is what draws the water out of the basin using centrifugal force.
  5. The water is sent through a discharge pipe somewhere away from your foundation.

Do I need a sump pump?

You do not need a sump pump. You and your home can greatly benefit from a sump pump, but it will not fix all your flooding issues. The flooding will be too great for the sump pump to handle at a certain point. So, it comes down to your preference.

How long does a sump pump last?

Most sump pumps can last up to 10 years. Maintenance and repairs, when necessary, are a must.

How often should a sump pump run?

Your sump pump should only run when it’s needed. If it runs continuously without water being pumped, it has a problem. Get in touch with our team for a repair or replacement. 

How much is a sump pump?

Sump pumps can range anywhere from $200 to $400 or even more. It greatly varies on the brand and size of the sump pump you need.
