Sump pumps are handy plumbing components that help keep your basement or cellar dry. A series of French drains collect water and pour it into a tank typically located in the basement. The tank is fitted with a motor and pump and turns on when the water in the tank reaches a certain level. The pump pushes water away from the foundation of your home, keeping the basement dry and clean.
If you’re thinking about installing a sump pump in your Mississauga home or you’re looking into a sump pump replacement, it’s important to know about the two main types of pumps.
Here are the main differences between the two models:
These units are best for homeowners that rely on the unit on a regular basis since it pumps water at a higher rate per minute. These pumps can be fully submerged in water without sustaining damage. They are also durable and last longer than other models.
These units are better for homes that will only rely on the unit in emergency situations since it pumps water at a slower rate per minute. Pedestal pumps sit on a pedestal above the tank and cannot be submerged in water.
