What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is used to drain a sump basin, which acts as a container, where water collects in your basement.

A sump pump is an important type of pump that helps keep the basement in your home dry and free from flooding. Located at the lowest point in your basement, a properly functioning sump pump is crucial in keeping you and your family comfortable. Homeowners who live in an area where the water table is generally high, and gets higher whenever there is heavy rainfall, really have no choice – you’re going to have to invest in a high-quality sump pump to protect your home.

When you do begin to shop around for a quality sump pump, that would be a good time to contact us at Right Now Heating and Cooling, so that one of our specialists can come to your home and evaluate your needs in a sump pump.

Choosing your Sump Pump Replacement

Our specialists are well-trained and very knowledgeable about the particular kinds of sump pumps which are needed to service homes in specific areas. For instance if your sump basin has enough space, it’s better to choose a submersible pump over a pedestal pump, because submersibles allow the sump pit to be completely covered over by a lid. That will reduce the noise generated by the sump pump, and it will also prevent various debris from falling into the pit and clogging the sump itself. This may not matter to your household, but an airtight lid will also prevent moisture from being released into the air of your basement, in the event that you have items which could be damaged by excessive humidity.

It’s also better to purchase a sump pump which has a cast-iron core rather than one made of plastic, because cast-iron is more effective at dissipating heat into the water, thereby lengthening the life of the pump. To minimize the possibility of any clogs developing in your sump pump, you should have a no-screen intake design, along with an impellor which is capable of handling solids up to 1/2 inch in diameter.

Your sump pump should also have a mechanical switch rather than a pressure switch, and the float on your sump pump should be solid, so it won’t get waterlogged and fail to switch off, thereby burning out the plump. Finally, any good sump pump that you choose, should have an alarm which alerts you when the water level in your basement has reached a certain level.
