Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Glenwood Springs Colorado


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are created 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 normally set up at the lowest sump pump maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a perimeter drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

A lot of new homes are geared up with sump pumps but older homes can be retrofitted with a sump system to avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair.

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 make sure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's specifically crucial that water is pumped away from your home.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can present several backup options.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Evaluate your sump pump frequently to make sure it will run when the next big downpour occurs. Test it by putting a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump should turn on, get rid of the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Ensure that the float and the check valve move freely.

To clean your sump pit, eliminate any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's performance and extend its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is free of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace. If you don't wish to do this yourself, our team of Midwest Plumbers experts mores than happy to assist with your sump pump upkeep.

If your sump pump is not working, contact the experts at Midwest Plumbers to examine the situation. We also can help with any basement leakage repairs that have actually taken place due to a broken sump pump.
