Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Telluride Colorado


Did you know? Sump pumps will fix 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 generally set up at the most affordable sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your home's structure is channeled into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the foundation. Water finds its way into the perforated drainpipes and is quickly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is activated by a float switch, eliminates the water by pumping it to the nearby storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Many brand-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 specialists at sump pump installation and repair work.

Many sump pumps are equipped 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 especially essential that water is pumped far from your home.
