Your Sump Pump Options
Are you on the market for a sump pump? One of the reasons you should call a pro for your sump pump installation is to ensure you have the right type of pump, along with sufficient power to remove water from your crawlspace or basement so it doesn’t infiltrate the rest of your home. You should know though, there are two main types of sump pumps, which we’ve outlined below.
- Pedestal Sump Pump: This type of sump pump sits above the water collection pit (known as the sump) and draws up the water through a pipe, then removing it to the wastewater system. These pumps are easy to maintain, but aren’t necessarily as energy efficient as a submersible sump pump.
- Submersible Sump Pump: If you choose a submersible sump pump installation, you’ll have a sump pump that works very efficiently. Due to its set up—the sump pump sits down in the sump itself and activates when water begins to rise above it—a submersible sump pump does suffer more wear and tear than its pedestal sump pump counterpart. It functions by pulling water through intakes and forcing it up through a pipe from the sump.
