Garland Sump Pump Installation
Call Sunrise Plumbing & Air to Book Your Sump Pump Repair or Installation
There are plenty of reasons to want to build beneath ground level. Going underground offers a lot of flexibility and space, as there are often few obstructions beyond how much land you are willing to hollow out in order to create it. Doing so is often safer, as underground structures are protected from severe weather hazards common to North Texas like lightning, hail, and tornadoes. However, the clay-based soil of the Dallas area does not absorb water well, and that means any underground structures could sustain serious flooding during heavy rains. To protect against this flooding, Sunrise Plumbing can outfit your underground spaces with a sump pump system.

What Is a Sump Pump?
Underground spaces, be it a basement, storage room, or even just a separate living area, all need to be protected against floodwaters. Because these spaces are below ground level, water that falls into the soil eventually trickles down below ground level and can leak into these underground rooms, damaging them or even causing flooding. To protect against this, your underground space is equipped with a sump basin, or a collection area where intruding water collects and is safely kept away from everything else.
Whereas your home can utilize gravity to dispose of water in your sewer system via a system of rain gutters and surface drains, your basement simply can’t do this because it is already below the level of the sewer itself. Therefore, water in a sump basin needs to be pumped out, and that’s what your sump pump takes care of. This system utilizes and electric motor to lift water back up to ground level, where it is drained away in a drain system that carries it, along with other collected rain water, out to the public sewer.
Types of Sump Pumps
There are two primary types of sump pump systems: submersible and pedestal pumps. Pedestal pumps sit with the motor outside of the sump basin, and they draw in the water through a feeder hose that is placed down at the bottom of the basin itself. These systems tend to last longer than submersible systems, but they generally make more noise when operating.
Submersible pumps are placed directly into the basin themselves. These units are typically waterproofed with heavy-duty materials and seals. They tend to be quieter to operate and are less prone to clogging or jamming, but they do wear out faster due to the fact that they are almost constantly submerged at least partially in water.

Signs You Need A New Sump Pump Installation
1. Strange noises - If you hear something rattling around, there could just be a loose piece. But if you hear that your entire unit is vibrating rather viciously then it might be time for sump pump replacement.
2. Old age - On average a sump pump usually lasts for about 7 years. If it's much older than that and working fine, then it's no big deal but if it's breaking down call in our Garland sump pump installation experts about getting a new one.
3. One repair after another - We'll always be happy to come in for any sump pump repair job, but if you're needing repairs too often it'll be more cost effective to opt for a new sump pump installation.
4. Rust - As sump pumps attract water, if it's not draining properly then you might get some rust accumulation. Not only is rust dangerous to your health, but getting rid of it can be quite pricey. So instead of trying to get rid of the rust, it might be time for sump pump replacement.
