Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Hayden Colorado


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking concerns as they are developed 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 maintenancepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is transported into a border 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 activated by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on just when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Many brand-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 experts at sump pump setup and repair work.

Numerous sump pumps are geared up with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as during a severe storm when it's specifically important that water is pumped away from your house.
