Crawl Space Sump Pump

Water intrusion in your crawl space can feel like a creeping nightmare for Colorado homeowners. Standing water leads to wood rot, mold growth, and structural instability over time.  

But you can stop crawl space moisture problems before they spiral out of control with a high-quality sump pump system. As a leader in crawl space encapsulation, Foundation Repair of Western Colorado specializes in installing effective sump pumps that keep crawl spaces dry.  

Installed as part of a wider encapsulation system, our sump pumps offer complete protection for your home. After reading this page, you’ll understand how and why to safeguard your home with a crawl space sump pump. 

What is a Crawl Space Sump Pump System? 

A sump pump system installed in the crawl space collects water as it drains toward the lowest point of your crawl space. Sump pumps use a basin set into a sump liner, with a submersible pump inside. 

When water flows into the basin, a float switch activates the pump to begin removing the accumulated water. The water exits through a discharge line and away from the crawl space where it can’t cause damage. 

By continually evacuating water, a sump pump is fundamental for any dry, healthy crawl space environment. Paired with other encapsulation methods, sump pumps prevent moisture damage and protect your home’s structural integrity. 

Signs You Need a Crawl Space Sump Pump 

Watch for these common indicators that it’s time to add a sump pump system in your crawl space: 

Addressing moisture issues promptly with Foundation Repair of Western Colorado’s crawl space solutions prevents further structural deterioration and improves home comfort and air quality. 

Is a Crawl Space Sump Pump Necessary? 

Absolutely. Allowing water to collect in your crawl space leads to moisture damage and expensive repair costs down the road. Acting now with a sump pump and encapsulation system is the most effective way to protect your crawl space. 

While a DIY sump pump installation may seem like a cost-effective idea, the crawl space can be dangerous to navigate without proper training and safety protocols. Inadequate products from big-box retailers simply don’t provide the level of protection a customized sump pump solution offers. 

You’ll have to spend more money redoing the repairs and dealing with a damp crawl space. Let our crawl space repair experts do the dirty work with our AquaStop™ sump pumps, designed to keep your crawl space safe and comfortable. 

What Are the Different Kinds of Crawl Space Sump Pumps? 

Each home has unique requirements, meaning different sump pump systems may be tailored to your crawl space. At Foundation Repair of Western Colorado, we offer three options: 

AquaStop Mini/Single Sump Pump System 

Our single sump pump system, designed with a compact basin for smaller crawl spaces, uses a powerful SafeDri™ cast iron pump for efficient water removal. Typically, this system includes a SafeDri™ 1/3 hp pump, capable of handling over 2,000 gallons of water per hour. 

AquaStop Single with Battery Backup 

We enhance our single sump pump system with a backup battery, ensuring it operates even during power outages. This battery supports the system, pumping out more than 11,500 gallons of water per hour. 

AquaStop Triple Sump Pump System 

For maximum protection, our AquaStop Triple Sump Pump System includes three pumps. The primary SafeDri™ 1/3 hp pump is for regular water removal. A secondary SafeDri™ ½ hp pump, capable of over 3,000 gallons per hour, is used for larger volumes. During power failures, a third battery-backed pump maintains continuous operation. 

Our expert technicians will evaluate your crawl space’s individual moisture needs and recommend the most appropriate AquaStop™ sump pump system to effectively address them.
