This series of videos has attempted to educate homeowners and consumers about the major differences in sump pump design and construction and how these factors affect the pump’s performance. So far, Barry Schilling 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
- The Importance of Sump Pump Filtration: Why filtration that is too coarse or too fine can have a disastrous effect on the best of sump pumps.
In this video, Barry puts all his advice together and recommends what he feels is the best primary sump pump for most homeowners, one that’s heavy-duty, powerful and can be counted on to keep your basement dry.
