We service all of Central and Western Oklahoma. Sump Pumps can be connected to French Drains.  When you have a low lying area that needs a French Drain, but it is up-hill in all directions and there is no way for the French Drain to move water to the Exit Point, a Sump Pump can be used.

Sump Pumps can also be used to pump water out of Basements or other enclosed low-lying areas.  Most Residential applications require a sump pump that has a power rating of 1 horse to 2 horse.  ( Horse being horse power)

 

A “Clean” pump must pump water that is relatively clean or it will clog up after a while.  ” Dirty” Pump can handle water that is not so clean that has small pieces of Debris in it.  It will also clog if the debris is too thick or large.  There are several techniques that Oklahoma Drainage uses to keep a sump pump “Clog Free” and running well.  One technique is to place the sump pump on top of a cement block inside the pump cavity.  Debris and unwanted solids fall the the bottom of the sump cavity and never goes through the sump.  The sump cavity must then be cleaned out  on a regular basis depending on the usual amount of debris.  Once a Year is typical.  Also putting a sump pump under a tree is a bad idea.  Leaves will clog up a sump faster than anything.  Pine needles are the worst.

French Drains can be installed by themselves, or as part of a Drainage System that uses other French Drains, Surface Drains, or other Drain combinations.  Typically a French Drain is used to protect a broad area that has a lot of standing water.  A French Drain might run along side a homes foundation, or beside a driveway, or on any Drainage Project where Sub-Surface water is the primary problem.  If water is running toward your home under ground ( through sandy soil), A French Drain is the only Solution  for draining away water flowing under ground.
