Should Sump Pumps be Tested?
To ensure your sump pump is functioning correctly, test it two or three times a year. Simply pour water into the sump pit and wait for the submersible pump to cycle. This quick and easy process typically takes just a few minutes. By proactively testing your pump, you can have peace of mind knowing it's prepared to handle heavy rainstorms when they occur.

What are the different kinds of sump pumps?
There are several types of sump pumps:
Pedestal sump pumps are electric upright pumps controlled by a float and turn on when the water level reaches a predetermined level. A pump of this kind is ideal for basements that need to drain water frequently.
Submersible sump pumps are designed to operate underwater. Due to their sealed motors, which prevent moisture and debris from entering, these are typically quieter than pedestal-type models.
Back-Up Sump Pumps are another option that homeowners should seriously consider. Due to power outages, electric pumps can fail, causing extensive damage, rejected insurance claims, increased premiums, limited coverage, higher deductibles, and even exclusion from subsequent coverage. The two back-up sump pump types are Battery Back-up Sump Pumps and Water Controlled Back-up Sump Pumps. In our experience with back-up sump pumps, we typically recommend water-powered back-up sump pumps because they have been more reliable.
We install several types of sump pumps from renowned manufacturers such as: Hydromatic, and Zoeller including back-up sump systems by Liberty and Water Commander.
