Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Evans Colorado
Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping concerns as they are developed to get rid of 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 typically installed at the lowest point in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is carried into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. 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, eliminates the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.
Most new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair work.
Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Lots of sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to guarantee that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped away from your home.
If your house experiences a power interruption out for a prolonged duration, frequent power failures or if your main sump pump fails, a battery backup sump pump or one of many water powered backup systems (that use your home's water system pressure to remove water from the sump pit) will secure your basement from water damage.

To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's performance and prolong its life.
