    Expert Sump Pump Repair in Thornton

    Your pump’s discharge pipe is responsible for keeping removed water far from your basement. Our expert plumbers can install a permanent discharge system underground. A backup pump or dual pumps located in separate basement sumps can provide balanced and backup pumping. As an additional precaution, sump pump manufacturers now offer specialized battery backup units for power outage coverage!

    • Testing and sump pump repair
    • Sump pump replacement and backup pumps
    • Discharge pipe services
    • Battery backup

    A complete sump pump installation is an effective way to protect your basement and whatever it contains from damage by a rising water table and resulting intrusion. The pump itself usually lasts about 10 years, and if components wear out from heavy service or jammed pump impellers before then, our sump pump repair team can help. Unnoticed until it awakens as the water rises, we’re here to make sure your pump is ready to serve when it’s needed in Thornton.

    In addition to repairing your current device, our sump pump installation experts can provide the right type for your current needs. These include pedestal units that stand above the rising water and activate as their float is lifted. Submersible units respond to the tilt of a sealed switch even if the water level is already past the unit, without damage. It’s important to also select the right pumping rate to keep your basement dry.

    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.
