To continue our commitment to educating homeowners and consumers, Barry Schilling is hosting this series of videos on that most common piece of basement waterproofing equipment, the sump pump. To date, Barry has discussed:
- How to Choose a Sump Pump: The difference between the pedestal style of pump and the more common submersible style
- Understanding Pumping Capacity: Pump capacity and how consumers should always read the small print
- Sump Pump Float Switches: Different styles of switches and why a vertical float is the most reliable way to make sure your sump pump turns on when needed.
In this video, Barry explains the different materials used in the construction of sump pumps and illustrates why one material stands out above the others.
