Foundation Drainage in Zwingle, IA


• Help Protect

Sump pumps are needed to help protect basements from flooding. Since the basement of a house is below ground, when the soil of the ground gets saturated with rain water, that water can leak into the basement. And leaking in the basement can cause thousands; call Pro Drainage Solutions 888-348-7353.


• Lots Of Flooding

Sump pumps are necessary more in areas which have lots of flooding, or when the house is below the water table line. However they're helpful as a preventative measure in any house which has a basement, since that basement is always at least partially underground.


• Sump Hole

A sump pump is a machine which sits in or above a small hole in the basement floor. The hole is referred to as the sump hole or sump pit, and it's designed to catch any water that might enter the basement of a home.

Sump Pump Workings in Zwingle, IA

As water fills up the sump pit hole, the sump pump kicks on and begins pumping it out through various interconnected pipes. Sump pumps can drain into the house's primary water drainage system, or drain directly outdoors away from the foundation of the home. Pro Drainage Solutions keeps your basement itself from getting flooded, because the water is actually diverted into the hole and then moved out by the sump pump.

Sump pumps generally have a float which triggers them to turn on and off. When the water rises in the sump pit hole, the sump pump float rises as well. When that float reaches a certain height, the sump pump conveniently turns on and starts pumping the excess water out.

Sump Pump Electrical

Pro Drainage Solutions installs Sump pumps wired into a house's main electrical system, but it's important for us to include some kind of power backup as well. Many sump pumps in Zwingle, IA use car style batteries as a power backup, but if you don't like the idea of having a battery in your basement, we can install a sump pump that is run off the water pressure in your home.

Regardless of what type of backup power system you choose for your sump pump, Pro Drainage Solutions will be sure there actually is a backup. Sump pumps are necessary during storms and flooding, and these are typical times for the electricity to go out as well. If the electrical power goes out and the sump pump doesn't have a backup power source, it will not be able to counter flooding in your basement.

Sump Pump Size

Some people use a five gallon bucket for their sump pit, Pro Drainage Solutions feels this can in fact cause problems in the long run because there is not enough room for the sump pump to work properly. In Zwingle, IA, Pro Drainage Solutions makes sure your sump pit is at least 18 inches across and 22 inches or more deep can keep this problem from happening.
