Sump pumps are small pumps that are installed in the lowest part of a home’s basement or crawlspace. They work by pumping out floodwater from the specially constructed sump pit to keep your basement or crawlspace dry. No matter if the floodwater is caused by torrential rains or plumbing disasters, sump pumps can effectively protect your home from water damage.
- Submersible – As the name suggests, these sump pumps can be submerged in water and are installed inside the sump pit. Compared to other types of sump pumps, submersible models can handle greater amounts of water including some solids and particles.
- Pedestal – These sump pumps are installed with the pump inside the pit, but the motor sits outside of the sump pump. The more affordable model, pedestal sump pumps also have a longer lifespan. However, these sump pumps are not built to handle solids and particles.
- Backup sump pumps – Because severe storms can bring floods and power outages, it is vital to have a backup sump pump. Backup sump pumps will give you peace of mind knowing that should your main sump pump fail, your basement or crawlspace will stay dry.
