In a prior series of videos, sump pump expert Barry Schilling took viewers through the important design, construction and performance aspects of sump pumps in an effort to educate homeowners and consumers about this crucial piece of basement waterproofing equipment. In that series, he covered:
- How to choose a sump pump between the pedestal style and the more common submersible style
- Pumping capacity and how consumers should always read the small print
- Why one type of sump pump switch is more reliable than others
- How cast iron sump pumps have the advantage over those made of other materials
- The importance of the filtration system to a sump pump’s performance
- Why the Zoeller 98 is the recommended choice of primary sump pumps for most homeowners.
In this video, Barry offers some advice for homeowners who must protect their basement from large amounts of water -– those who live where unusually high water tables create significant hydrostatic pressure or where heavy rainstorms are frequent. He recommends the best high-volume sump pump and explains how it should be installed for optimal performance.
