Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Norwood Colorado

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is usually installed at the most affordable sump pump repairspoint in your basement or crawl area. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is carried into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way 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 nearest 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 brand-new homes are geared up 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 setup and repair.
