Sump Pump Installation
Sump pumps involve two main components—the sump, which is a low space created to collect water for removal from your home, and the pump, which is the actual component responsible for pumping it out. Sump pumps must be professionally installed in the lowest part of your home by a plumber, which is likely your basement.
There are two main types of sump pumps, the pedestal pump and the submersible sump pump, each with their own benefits and drawbacks.
- Pedestal Sump Pumps are placed above the sump on a pedestal, and a pipe runs from the sump pump down into the sump. These are easy to maintain and typically last pretty long, but are noisier during operation than their submersible counterparts.
- Submersible Sump Pumps are placed down into the sump itself and are submerged in the water. They use impeller pumps to draw water indoor the unit and intake valves. Their setup means they consume less energy to do their job. However, they do usually require more repairs and maintenance.
