Sump Pump Drainage System

Why use a Sump Pump Drainage System versus any other landscape drainage in Houston? Occasionally when traditional drainage systems are installed solo, like French Drains or catch drain, they cannot resolve abnormal flooding. Instead, they need an additional drainage system to pair with them. In this scenario, we find the Sump Pump Drainage System to be beneficial. When both drainage systems are working together, excess water will drain to the street, rather than remaining in your yard.

Typically, most residential homes only require a half-horsepower pump, which can pump 70 gallons per minute. This amount of power can be excessive for most households. Nevertheless, it is better to be on the safe side for abnormal flooding areas. Additionally, we can provide several other models with different horsepower, performance, and switch options. In other words, we can find the right Sump Pump to fit your specific needs.

How a Sump Pump Drainage System Works

The Sump Pump Drainage System is for unusual cases when a conventional drainage system is not possible. For instance, some homes do not have a proper slope that is needed to carry water out. This issue can be due to the street being higher in elevation than the affected area. Having too many obstacles to create a proficient slope to a drainage system is another reason Sump Pumps may be necessary.

A common question about the Sump Pump Drainage System is: how does it work and where does the water go? How it works is simple; first, all excess water will flow into the drainage system. Next, the drainage system will send the water into a catch basin drainage system, which the Sump Pump will sit in. Afterward, the pump will push out any water residing in the basin away from the property. Finally, with the proper drainage installed, your home will be free of flooding.

Sump Pump Installation

For the Sump Pump installation in Houston, we use top-notch materials to ensure the maximum quality of your landscape drainage. For starters, the Sump Pump will sit inside a basin. The basin needs to be large so that the Sump Pump can fit inside. Depending on the drainage system needed, there will usually be at least two pipes connecting to the basin. Also, all PVC pipes are connected with PVC cement to prevent any leaks.

Furthermore, for the two pipes, the bottom one will be a 4-inch PVC that connects to the drainage system. The second pipe will be a 2-inch PVC that goes out of the Sump Pump. Attached to the 2-inch PVC will be two fittings: a check valve and a union joint. The purpose of the check valve is to make sure there is no backflow. In other words, the water will only flow in one direction. The union joint is a threaded assembly that connects to the end piece of a PVC. Its purpose is to disconnect the Sump Pump without having to cut into the piping. Thus, if a problem occurred with the Sump Pump, then it would be easily detachable for servicing. Lastly, the Sump Pump installation will need to receive power from an outlet; then, it will be ready to go.
