Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Ellicott Colorado


Did you know? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are created to remove water from basements and crawlspaces.

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the most affordable sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is funnelled into a border drain system set up at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Most brand-new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump installation and repair.

Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Many sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's especially important that water is pumped far from your home.

A Midwest Plumbers plumber can present a number of backup options.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Test your sump pump frequently to make sure it will operate when the next big downpour occurs. Check it by pouring a container of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off immediately. Make sure that the float and the check valve move easily.

To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other particles to increase the pump's effectiveness and lengthen its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is devoid of obstructions so that water can be pumped through the line and out of your basement or crawlspace. If you do not want to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers experts is happy to help with your sump pump maintenance.

Sump Pump Replacement and Repair

Like any equipment with moving parts, sump pumps will wear out gradually and will need to be replaced. There is no general rule on how often a sump pump should be replaced because it depends on how typically the pump operates. If your sump pump is not working, hire the experts at Midwest Plumbers to examine the scenario. We also can assist with any basement leakage repairs that have occurred due to a broken sump pump.
