What You Need to Know About Sump Pumps

Posted on: July 14, 2015

Have you ever had a flood in your basement? If you have, you know how devastating heavy summer rains can be and if you haven’t, consider yourself lucky. While sump pumps are a great solution if your home has a water problem, there are a few things you should know before making a purchase.

1. When the heavy rains hit they often knock out your power as well. For the ultimate peace of mind, many people choose a battery backup system. These systems work when the power doesn’t. We carry the best in battery backup systems.

2. If you have the option, choose a submersible pump over a pedestal pump. They allow the sump pit to be covered with a lid which will drastically reduce noise and stop debris from falling into the pit.

3. Don’t choose an inexpensive model just to save money. Go with a pump that has a cast iron core rather than a plastic core because cast iron helps to dissipate heat to the surrounding water. This will ultimately increase the lifespan of your machine.

Still not sure about what kind of sump pump you need? Contact the professionals at ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric today! We’ll be glad to help.
