Sump Pump Drain Pipe


Sump Pump Drain Pipe Kansas CityA sump pump drain pipe is important in keeping your basement or crawlspace dry. It helps to prevent thousands of your dollars and your structural damages as well. If the sump pump drain pipe is clogged, perforated, or frozen, the water cannot exit your home. It is important to keep the pipe protected from freezing and free of debris. If your drain pipe is perforated, it requires replacement.

Sump Pump Drain Pipe Repair or Replacement

A sump pump system is relatively simple. A hole is dug in the lowest part of your basement or crawlspace and a sump pit is placed into the hole. As the pit fills up, a pump turns on and the water moves away from the pit through a pipe that runs away from the foundation into an area where it can drain. The pump does not require any special wiring. The sump pump turns on when the pressure sensor activates as the water fills the pit. There is a float activator that floats on top of the water and moves as the water level rises. When the motor activates, a fan-like device turns on. As all of these things work together, they keep your basement dry. When one or more things goes wrong, then the entire system will not work. That is why it is important to make sure a professional comes in and inspects your sump pump system to ensure that it is working properly.
