Sump Pump Repair Colorado Springs
“Taking care of your family like it’s our own.”
A sump pump is usually installed in the basement or crawl space of your home. This submersible pump removes groundwater that may enter your home through the foundation during times of high precipitation or flooding. The water is pumped away from the lowest point in your home’s foundation and out into a drainage system to ensure your home stays safe from water damage and mold growth. Though a sump pump requires little maintenance, it is important to check yours yearly to ensure it is working properly. Some signs that your sump pump may need servicing are:
Foul or moldy smell
Not running when it should be
Stuck float switch

Sewer Pump Repair Colorado Springs
A Sewer Pump, also known as an Ejector Pump, is similar to a Sump Pump in that it pumps fluids up and out of the house. The main difference is that a Sewer Pump pushes “black water,” rather than surface water. Black water includes sewage from toilets and an ejector pump is used when the elevation of the lowest sewer pipe in your home is below your septic tank or the public sewer pipe. In these situations, sewage from your home is pumped, instead of gravity led, out of your home.
Homeowners should periodically check on their ejector pumps to see if it is time to call a plumber. It’s best to replace a pump before it completely fails and you experience overflowing toilets and drains. Here are 5 important indicators of a failing ejector pump:
The pump won’t run
The pump cycles on when no waste water is flowing into the pit
Pump runs longer than normal or indefinitely
The pit doesn’t empty during a pump cycle
The pump is making strange sounds, like clanging, banging, or unusual grinding noises
