Sump Pump Services in Katy, TX
Protect Your Basement, Call Life Line Plumbing
Water is incredibly predictable: it will always flow downward with the force of gravity. However, water cannot go against the constant press of gravity without a little bit of help, and that’s exactly what water in underground structures will need to do in order to escape out to the sewer where it can drain away.
This is what a sump pump does: pumps collected water out of your basement’s sump basin and pumps it to ground level where it can flow away with the rest of the water from the surface. These pumps need to constantly be in good condition in order to provide reliable and consistent protection, and that’s why the team at Life Line Plumbing provides a full range of services for sump pump systems, including new installations, replacements, maintenance, repairs, and more!

What Do Sump Pumps Do?
As the ground above and around them absorbs water, basements and underground structures are constantly under threat of water intrusion. Without proper protection, underground areas can quickly become flooded, causing incredible damage. This can happen shockingly fast during heavy rains or rainstorms that we experience here in the Houston area. To counter this, basements are designed to deflect intruding water into a collection basin known as your sump basin, but it needs a little help to get back up to ground level so it can be disposed of in a storm drain.
This is where your sump pump comes in. Sump pumps then drain this water by pumping it up to ground level where it can join the rest of the water collected by your surface drains. From there, this water is carried out to the storm drain system by gravity, where it can be safely carried away for disposal.
There are two primary types of sump pumps:
- Submersible pumps: Submersible pumps are placed down in the basin itself, and are constructed from waterproof materials that allow them to safely utilize electric power while submerged in collected water. These pumps are generally quieter and more powerful, but tend to need more maintenance and don’t last as long.
- Pedestal pumps: Pedestal pumps keep the pumping mechanism out of the water in your basin, instead drawing it in through a hose that is fed down into the bottom of the basin itself. These pumps tend to be louder and are often limited in pumping power due to the size of the collection hose, but they are longer-lasting and typically don’t need as much service.
