Expert Sump Pump Replacement in Littleton
When it’s time for your sump pump to take action against rising waters, it’s an all-or-nothing situation. Everything needs to be ready, or your basement and perhaps your foundation are going to pay the price. Our experts provide sump pump repair and testing, but they also verify that the sump is clean so the impeller won’t jam, and many other factors. They even think about seasonal issues, like making sure the discharge pipe or hose is unlikely to freeze and block the outflow from the pump.
Speaking of discharge hoses, if yours gets moved and could wind up near your foundation, a properly installed underground pipe and dry well might be a better solution. Other considerations for best performance include a second pump as a backup and to balance the water table pressure below your foundation. If you don’t have a backup generator, we can provide battery backup to keep your pump going if the power fails. We’d love to make sure you’re prepared for Front Range flooding!

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.
