Sump Pumps are small pumps usually found in a basement or cellar in the lowest part of your home. The reason they are positioned here is because it keeps the area beneath your house or building dry, and ultimately prevents it from flooding.
They will usually be installed in a sump pit specifically constructed for drainage. Water will flow into the pit through the drainage system and natural water movement through the soil. The pump will then pump the water away from your house or building to ensure the area stays dry.
There are a number of options available when selecting the correct pump. Though you can choose manual or automatic operated pumps, we generally recommend automatic, as the intelligent systems can be configured to match your requirements.
There is a range of motor sizes available too. More powerful motors are able to pump more water. The height that a pump will raise water to will be set by the head pressure. When you are looking to purchase your pump, don’t hesitate to get in touch to ensure you choose the pump that matches your requirements.
Submersible sump pumps are built with a motor that is completely submerged in oil. This provides cooling and lubrication for the lifespan of the pump. Pedestal sump pumps are fitted with motors that drive and impeller to pump the water. These are generally less expensive, but because the motor is left open for cooling purposes it can shorten the lifespan.
