U.S. Waterproofing’s resident sump pump expert, Barry Schilling, used a series of videos to discuss the primary sump pump. In that series, he discussed how pedestal pumps differ from submersibles, why pumping capacity is important, why a solid float switch is generally more reliable than other options, why cast-iron sump pumps have an advantage over those made of other materials, the importance of a sump pump’s filtration system and why the Zoeller 98 and the StormPro SHW50 are the best primary sump pumps for normal and heavy water conditions, respectively.
A new series on the most common backup pumps is part of our mission to educate homeowners and consumers about basement waterproofing. In this three-part series so far:
To conclude the discussion of backup sump pumps, Barry talks about the ultimate sump pump, a dual-power, dual pump backup system that protects against seepage under the most difficult situations and alternates pumps to greatly extend the useful life of each pump. He recommends the best AC/DC dual-pump backup system.
