Sump Pumps: What They Are & Why They’re Important
Sump pumps are vital to preventing basement floods. A sump pump is a specialized appliance that transfers water from beneath your foundation to the nearest storm drain, dry well, or retention pond. This submersible pump is installed in a pit, also called a sump pit, at the lowest point of your basement or crawl space.
Heavy rains oversaturate the soil around your home, causing groundwater to rise toward your basement floor. Once the water is high enough, the sump pit may flood, which triggers the float switch to power on the sump pump. The system will then start removing water from below the foundation and pumping it away from your home.
Sump Pump Installation in Dallas
Sump pumps have an important job, so it’s critical that they’re installed correctly. Our Dallas plumbers have the knowledge, skills, and tools to install or replace your sump pump with expert precision. We also install battery backups, which will power your sump pump in the event of a power outage.
For answers to your questions about any plumbing concern, call Public Service Plumbers at (214) 753-4633.
We respond to all warranty and service issues within 48 hours. You’ll receive a one-year warranty on all parts and labor.
Battery-Operated Sump Pumps
We handle all issues related to sump pumps, from installation to servicing and repair. We can set up your sump pump so it’s hardwired into your electrical system or so it plugs into a wall outlet. We can also install a battery-operated sump pump that will run on a battery backup if you lose power.
When you contact us to resolve a problem with your sump pump, we’ll fully test the unit to determine the problem. It may be as simple as replacing the float switch, or it may require that your unit be replaced — sump pumps do wear out over time, but we’ll always do our best to fix your unit before opting to replace it.
Sewage Ejection Pumps
If your laundry room or one of your bathrooms, such as in a finished basement, is located below the main sewer or septic line in your home, then a sewage ejection pump is necessary for your plumbing to function correctly. A sewage ejection pump works to push wastewater up pipes to the main line, where gravity will take over and let the water flow out to the city sewer lines or a septic system.
If sewage ejection pumps aren’t properly maintained, they can fail and spill raw sewage into your home or business. Call us if you’re concerned about an aging sewage ejection pump in your home. When it comes to sewage ejection pumps in Dallas, we’re the experts!

Frequently Asked Questions
How does a sump pump work?
Sump pumps give excess water pressure in the ground around your basement somewhere to go, a hole called a sump pit, then pumping that water away when it accumulates. With the pressure around your basement reduced, water won’t try to force its way into your home.
You can think of it as managed flooding of your basement, where the water enters and exits your home without touching anything vulnerable.
Why can’t my sump pump keep up with the water?
If your sump pump is starting to show its age, it might be unable to keep up with even an average amount of water. It could also be an issue of drainage, where far too much water is flooding in for your sump pump to manage.
Look out for collapsed gutters, where your sump pump is dumping its water, clogged drains, and plumbing issues inside and outside your home.
How long should a sump pump last?
Your sump pump will have an average life expectancy of 10 years, but of course, that’s simply an average; some will last longer while others will fail sooner. If your sump pump appears to be failing, call a plumber to inspect it before it becomes a serious problem.
