Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Mancos Colorado


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are designed 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 typically set up at the most affordable sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's foundation is channeled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water discovers its way into the perforated drains and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is set off by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the nearest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump turns on only 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 avoid basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are experts at sump pump installation and repair.
