The typical lifespan of a sump pump is between 8 and 10 years, but waiting until your sump pump is broken to replace it can cause a lot of headaches—including a flooded basement. We recommend consulting a professional like the ones at Valdel Plumbing to see if you’re due for a sump pump replacement. Knowing more about your sump pump can help you make more informed decisions as well.
Types of Sump Pumps
There are two main types of sump pumps: pedestal and submersible—both are used to make sure too much water doesn’t accumulate in your basement.
Pedestal pumps have motors mounted on top of the sump, where it’s easier to get to but not designed to get wet. These are usually used in sump basins with a smaller diameter.
Submersible pumps are mounted inside the sump and fully waterproofed. These are typically found in larger sump basins.
