Sump Pump Repair & Installation in Broomfield, CO Does your home maintenance list include sump pump repair in Broomfield, CO? Periodic inspection can reveal the need for attention to switch, motor, impeller, or support items like cleaning out the sump itself. The discharge tube or pipe needs to be checked, and the electrical circuit verified. The whole sump pump installation needs to be ready to respond when our famous Front Range downpours arrive, or any other risk of flooding in your home’s basement.

    Sump pump system design is what provides your protection, including considerations like whether you’re better off with a traditional pedestal pump standing at the ready, or a submersible model. Pump capacity needs to be able to keep up with the volume of water to be removed. For backup and higher volumes together, High 5 Plumbing can provide an additional sump pump installation collocated or across the basement in your Broomfield home.

    Reliable Sump Pump Repair in Broomfield

    Sump pumps work hard, especially if debris gathers in the sump and fouls the impeller, possibly damaging the motor as well. Our sump pump experts can diagnose and make repairs that last, providing savings over a new sump pump installation and continuing your home’s protection. We’ll also make repairs to components of your sump pump system, especially the discharge host which often gets displaced to an inappropriate location such as right next to your foundation. A pipe and dry well replacement ensure that your pump has a well-designed outflow location.

    Traditional sump pump installations are missing a few details that we can cover, including protecting the discharge route from icing. Ensuring that the pump is powered even if rainstorms bring power outages as well is another innovation. If you don’t have a backup generator, a battery backup solution provides important peace of mind. How can we improve your home’s sump pump protection?

    Sump Pump FAQ

    Sump pumps help remove water from basements and lower elevations. Its primary feature is a tank where drained water accumulates and then gets pumped from the tank to another location.

    Anyone who has a structure that is underground needs a sump pump. This includes critical elements such as crawl spaces, cellars, or basements.

    Most sump pumps can store between 15 and 25 gallons of water per tank.

    There are a few reasons, but here are the three most common:

    • Water collects around your basement during storms
    • Damaged pipes
    • A home standing on a high water table where water moves via joints and cracks

    When water enters your basement, it moves to the lowest point where it’s best to place the sump pump’s tank. Once the tank reaches a limit it will begin to pump out and move away from your home’s foundation.

    There are two primary types of sump pumps: pedestal and submersible. A pedestal sump pump sits on the tank, making it easier to service but the unit becomes more visible as a result. A submersible style is mounted inside the tank and is sealed to avoid damage–making it harder to service but less visible within the home.
