Sump pump expert Barry Schilling has been hosting this series of videos to help viewers when it comes to choosing a sump pump, another step in our mission to educate homeowners and consumers about basement waterproofing. Up to now, 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 performance and how consumers should always read the small print
- Sump Pump Float Switches: Different styles of switches and why one type of sump pump switch is more reliable than others
- Plastic, Steel or Cast Iron Sump Pumps: How cast iron sump pumps run cooler and generally outlast pumps made of plastic or steel
In this video, Barry discusses the different ways sump pumps prevent debris from entering the pump and the consequences of choosing a pump that takes the wrong approach.
