how much for new sump pump?

chicagoerinMarch 8, 2011

Hi, the only thing that came up in the inspection on the house I am selling is that the sump in the crawl space is broken. It has been broken for 2 years with no moisture down there. Any idea of how much I should give the buyer to fix it? He said I could either fix it myself or give him a credit and he would do it.

Thanks

Depending on GPM, $75-$150 should do it.

Why not just call someone in your area to give you a free estimate that is specific to your installation?

Good idea, yet I am no longer living in that state/house so it's more trouble than it's worth to coordinate someone to let the person in.
