Is installing a sump pump a capital improvement? Is installing a water filter a capital improvement?

I replaced an existing sump pump and added a second. Can I consider the whole job a repair?

I installed a DIY whole house filter. (In basement) Is this a capital improvement?

Thank you in advance.

If this is for your personal residence just add it to your basis.

Yes, it is for my home residence.

My wife gets the home office deduction, so I just want to put it in the correct cottagey.

Of the 2 questions the sump pump is the one I am less sure of, but if it's ambiguous I will take it as a repair.
