Sump Pump Installation & Replacement Santa Fe NM

sump pump installation and replacement

In addition, to complete waterproofing systems, we can also install new or replacement sump pumps for your existing system.

A sump pump is the real workhorse of a Santa Fe basement waterproofing system as it is the point at which the water is removed from your home.

These pumps will generally have to work for many hours continuously depending on the severity of the rain.

This is why it is important to choose an industrial-strength pump that is capable of working when you need it and will not break down during periods of heavy use.

To help guarantee your sump pump will be working when you need it to, we use the highest quality sump pumps. These pumps are designed to run continuously all day, every day, and are thoroughly tested to guarantee they will perform when they need to. They are also very energy efficient so while they’re keeping your basement dry, they’re also working to save you money.

Santa Fe Sump Pump Installation, Repair and Replacement Services

Although not every home needs a sump pump, basement contractors strongly recommends sump pump installation services for homes that have a crawlspace or basement.

This is because sump pumps are typically installed in a space below ground level in your home.

Our team of experts in Santa Fe can guide you through the installation process and help determine what type of sump pump your home could benefit from the most.


  • Rain or natural groundwater can enter your home through a perimeter drain. This water can fill a pit in your basement, and your sump pump works to remove water by pumping it out into a dry well or a storm drain.
  • A sump pump is usually required in homes that have space below ground level, such as a basement or a crawlspace. Without a sump pump, this space typically floods when it rains heavily. Your sump pump can help prevent this flooding by pumping water out before it reaches the top of the sump pit.
  • Every sump pump eventually fails at some point in its lifetime. For example, if your power goes out, your sump pump won’t work. This is why we recommend having a battery-powered backup sump pump in addition to your primary sump pump. This can help prevent flooding in your home if there is a heavy storm and you lose power.
  • You can test that your sump pump is working correctly by dumping water in it. You can hear the pump kick on and begin pumping out water. It’s always a good idea to check that your sump pump is working in the spring before the heavy rains to prevent your basement from flooding.

We typically install a 1/3 horsepower sump pump in standard situations. Our sump pump specialists can also install homeowner-provided sump pumps and backups should our customers choose to use these instead.
