Choosing the Right Sump Pump for Your Home
There are a variety of sump pump models and manufacturers. However, there are two main types of sump pumps: pedestal sump pumps and submersible sump pumps. Each of these pump types has its benefits, and which one you choose should be based on its purpose. Both types of sump pumps are activated by a floating switch. Once flooding water causes this switch to float, the pumps begin to pump water away from their area.
As suggested by the name, these pumps are typically mounted on top of a pedestal. They can also be mounted to a wall or placed on a shelf if the room’s features allow. Since they function above water, the motor of a pedestal pump is not meant to function while wet.
Submersible pumps are great for areas that are frequently flooded or wet. A sump pump can rest underwater and only function if needed.
Pedestal vs. Submersible Sump Pumps
There is no right or wrong sump pump choice. However, a person should carefully consider their intended use of a sump pump before purchasing one. Since they are outside of water, pedestal pumps usually have a longer life span. Additionally, they are typically more accessible than submersible pumps and easier to maintain as a result. Pedestal pumps are great for property owners looking for peace of mind that flood-prone areas of their homes have a defense against flooding.
Submersible pumps are preferred by some because of their stability underwater, quiet sound, and ability to handle a higher water volume. Submersible pumps are great for storm drains, which often can’t keep up with heavy rain in areas prone to severe flooding and water features that need their water level monitored.
How to Find the Right Sump Pump Battery
A sump pump system is only as good as its backup power. Backup sump pump batteries are ideal for power outages during a storm and a sump pump is needed. Battery backups can last anywhere from a few hours to a couple days, depending on how often they are needed. Our experts are ready to help you pair your new sump pump with the right backup battery!
