Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Ellicott Colorado


Did you know? Sump pumps will resolve most basement flooding and leaking issues as they are designed to eliminate 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 normally set up at the lowest sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is directed into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

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

Many sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during an extreme storm when it's specifically essential that water is pumped far from your home.
