The Two Kinds Of Sump Pumps

Recognizing what sorts of Sump Pumps exist can aid you in choosing the appropriate one for your basement, and also can assist you to obtain the right repairs work from a certified plumbing technician when your system has trouble. 

There are 2 kinds of Sump Pump that are extensively utilized today: pedestal pumps and submersible pumps:


Pedestal Pumps

These sit on top of a basin. They are air-cooled, so they require sufficient airflow to keep them from overheating, making them less than ideal for smaller-sized basements.

Submersible Pumps


As the name indicates, these sit inside the Sump pit and make use of a quieter, water-resistant electric motor.

Despite the sort of Pump you have actually set up in your basement, it’s always an excellent idea to have a battery back-up in case you experience a power blackout during a severe storm. Having backup power will ensure that the Pump is able to effectively do its job when you need it most.

How can you tell If Your Sump Pump Needs Repair?

If you have discovered your basement or below-ground area is flooded or damp, you might have a problem with the Sump Pump. If your Sump pit is full, or the Sump Pump is making strange sounds (whirring, clacking, grinding, etc.), it is a good decision to have it checked out by one of our service technicians.

The Pump needs to remain in good working order to offer the type of results you need. When ground water levels rise during a storm, rain can come rushing in, with very little notice. This swell of groundwater can result in a dysfunctional Pump. If your Sump Pump goes out, you’ll be faced with a basement full of water. If the Pump loses power as a result of a burnt-out motor or damaged electrical elements, you will need to call for repair services. If the Pump has been used greatly and is bogged down by fallen leaves and other debris, contact Master Tech to have it cleaned before it ends up breaking down when you need it most.

Sump pumps are designed to last in between 5 years and one decade, so any Pump that is older than 10 years must be frequently serviced– or changed. Sump Pumps with tethered switches will last much longer than those with vertical buttons.

Sump pumps are essential to keeping your basement dry during periods of rain, winter snow, and also other flooding incidents. While it can be a “Do-It-Yourself” task, it’s generally best to employ an expert to set up a new unit or replace an existing one.
