Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Littleton Colorado


Did you understand? Sump pumps will solve most basement flooding and leaking problems as they are developed to remove 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 generally installed at the most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's foundation is transported into a perimeter drain system set up at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its method into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, gets rid of 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.

A lot of new homes are equipped with sump pumps but older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation 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 ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a serious storm when it's particularly important that water is pumped away from your house.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing professional can provide several backup alternatives.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Evaluate your sump pump frequently to make sure it will operate when the next big rainstorm occurs. Evaluate it by putting a container of water into the sump pit. The pump should switch on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Make sure that the float and the check valve move freely.

To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's effectiveness and extend its life. Ensure that the discharge line opening is free of blockages so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace.
