Dependable Sump Pump Services In Texas

Schedule Sump Pump Installation Services For Your Texas Home

As a homeowner, maintaining the state of your property comes with many challenges. Water pooling in your lawn is just one example of this — but unfortunately, this problem may just be the tip of the iceberg. In fact, pooling water could be a precursor to a more serious issue — foundation damage.

At G.L. Hunt, our team is ready to defend your home from the effects of foundation problems and water damage by offering dependable installations for sump pumps! Join our team as we share the information you need to understand how this option can help.

Fight Landscape Flooding With Sump Pump System Installation

Out of sight, out of mind — and into your home! Without an effective drainage system installed on your property, that’s the path water will take as it falls out of the sky and into your soil.

This is because once water hits the ground, it will slip deeper and deeper into your soil. Drainage systems, like gutters, re-direct this rainfall on the roofline, but without one on the ground level, the water has free reign to approach your foundation and seep in.

This can cause soil to shift and concrete to crack — neither of which is good for the integrity of your home. If you have a crawlspace or your home is built on a slope, these low-lying areas are at an increased risk, but many homes can be affected by poor drainage even in a seemingly flat neighborhood.

That’s where sump pumps come in! These devices can collect water and move it away, stopping it before it reaches your home.

Understanding The Mechanics: How Does A Sump Pump Work?

During a sump pump installation, the system will be installed at a low point in your home. This could be a basement or a crawlspace, or some other low lying area. From there, the main system is connected to pipes that lead outside.

As water spreads through the soil and approaches your home, a pipe will be there to collect the water and lead it to the sump basin inside. This basin will be connected to a float switch. Once the water reaches a certain point, the float switch will activate.

The water will be pushed upward through another pipe and away from your house. Each step in this process works together to protect your home from water damage.

Sump Pump Drainage Placement

Many homeowners may know sump pumps as the classic basement flooding solution, but many homes in Texas don’t have basements! Instead, we install sump pumps in crawl spaces, near low-lying driveways and in coordination with other drainage systems.

If your home relies on French or surface drains to guide water away from your foundation, you may utilize a sump basin to collect the water and pump it further from your property. Long driveways and other pathways on your property may also benefit from more effective drainage, like a sump pump, to keep them from flooding or accumulating stormwater.

Trust our team of experienced specialists to evaluate the lay of the land around your home and recommend the most effective system to direct water away from your foundation and keep your home stable!

What Are Gutters For?

Gutters are designed to catch rainwater and move it away from your home. Positioning gutters directly under your roof’s edge will prevent large amounts of water from being deposited at the base of your house. Not only will this reduce the number of puddles you’ll have to step through when leaving your home, but it will also protect your foundation!

After the water is collected under your roof, it will move down the gutter system before flowing away from your home. With gutters in place, this process happens in a controlled manner that enhances your property’s drainage abilities.

How Often Do Homeowners Need To Clean Their Gutters?

When it comes to cleaning your gutters, there’s no set schedule you have to follow. However, there are helpful guidelines that can reduce your likelihood of clogs. Clogs in your rain gutter happen most commonly due to leaves or twigs that find their way into your gutter.

Homeowners should inspect their gutters as the seasons shift into the fall and spring. These seasons are active times for landscape changes as your trees either shed their leaves or support new growth — both of which can result in debris falling into your gutters.

In addition to these seasonal markers, you may find that you need more frequent cleanings if you live in rainy climates — especially during Texas’ spring storms! If you notice that your gutters seem to be clogged, don’t let your drainage system overflow! Instead, take steps to ensure your gutters are cleaned and cleared to receive the full benefits of your investment.

What Is An Exterior Drain?

Exterior drains are a solution to excess water accumulation in yards. These systems are identifiable with grates in the ground that are open for water to fall into during rainy weather. After the water is caught, it will flow away from your property using pipes installed beneath your soil.

One benefit of these systems is that they’re efficient at removing water, carrying it away quicker than other drainage options.

What Is A French Drain?

A French drain is a reliable and efficient drainage option for many homeowners across Texas. Unlike traditional drains, which are marked with a visible grate, French drains are subtle. They consist of a perforated pipe that runs underground within a trench.

This pipe is covered with a material that allows water to flow through but prevents rocks or dirt from forcing their way into your pipe. This is especially important as your drainage pipe will be surrounded by gravel that helps move water into it.

How Do You Unclog An Exterior French Drain?

Unclogging an exterior French drain can present challenges as the pipes are located underground. However, a drain snake can physically remove built-up materials and help dislodge clogs.

For stubborn blockages, consider calling an experienced professional on our team for drain cleaning services. This can ensure your pipes are handled safely, protecting the health of your French drain and maintaining efficiency!
