Sump Pumps

Types of Sump Pumps

There are two basic types of sump pump on the market. Pedestal pumps are the less expensive of the two. They’re designed to be placed on a flat surface, with a motor on a pedestal running the pump. They’re easy to maintain and service, though they can be quite noisy and are less efficient that the other type. Submersible sump pumps are placed in a pit dug at the lowest point of your property. As the pit filler with water, the pump goes to work. Because it takes a little more to properly service and install, some Bristol, CT homeowners shy away from it, but at Dynamic Mechanical Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning we recommend them for their overall efficiency and lack of noise.

How They Work

Regardless of the type of sump pump you have, the basics are always the same. When it turns on – either automatically upon detection of water or manually if you’re available to switch it on yourself – an impeller pulls the water into it, and then centrifugal force is used to power the water out of your home via a pipe.

Installing a Sump Pump
