Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Indian Hills Colorado


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are created 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 servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is transported into a border drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water finds its method into the perforated drainpipes and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Most new houses are geared up 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 work.
