For homeowners whose homes are built below grade or the natural drainage comes back toward the house, basement flooding becomes a real issue when it rains hard or there is a quick snow melt. Both of these things can happen in Denver at different times of the year, so it’s important to see about having a sump pump installed if your home is susceptible.

Two Different Types of Sump Pumps
When you make the decision to get a sump pump for your home, you have two basic choices; a pedestal pump or a submersible pump. If you choose a submersible pump, it will sit under the water inside your sump pit and a pedestal pump has the motor outside the pit. If you have a small sump pit, the pedestal type of pump might work best, but it’s always best to discuss it with your plumber prior to installation.
Regular Sump Pump Maintenance Is Key
Keeping your sump pump properly maintained is a key part of the process, because if it doesn’t work when you need it, it’s just an ornament in your basement. Any rainstorms when your pump isn’t running will only end up with your basement being flooded, which completely defeats the purpose of having a sump pump in the first place. If your pump is broken for any length of time, you also might fall victim to hydrostatic pressure behind the walls, which can damage the foundation. In order to avoid this, you need our sump pump repair services. Take the time to set up regular maintenance visits, so your sump pump is always running in peak condition.

Don’t Mess with DIY
It’s wise to shy away from DIY sump pump installation or repair, for the same reasons you should have regular maintenance. Improper installation or faulty DIY repair will only result in your pump malfunctioning when you need it most, so leave it to professionals and rest easy knowing everything will work out fine.
