FAQs About Sump Pumps
What maintenance do sump pumps require?
Sump pumps should be cleaned every month. This includes wiping it down and making sure that the grade isn’t blocked or damaged. You will also need to flush it once every quarter and perform a thorough inspection of the drainage pipes, screens, inlets, battery backup, and other components once per year.
What is the difference between pedestal and submersible sump pumps?
Pedestal pumps are less efficient and noisier than submersible pumps. They are becoming less and less common, and homeowners opt for submersible pumps that are more efficient and quieter.
How much horsepower do I need?
Bigger is not always better, nor is it always required. Choosing the wrong-sized sump pump can result in oversizing or undersizing, which translates to short cycling or continuous operation. As such, it’s best to stick with pumps with 1/3 to 1/2 horsepower.
Will the sump pump work if the power goes out?
No, unless the sump pump is connected to an emergency power generator. If a flood or heavy rain knocks out the power grid, your sump pump will not protect your basement or crawl space from flooding.
