PUMP TYPE There are two main types of sump
pumps,each with their definite characteristics
Pedestal or Submersible. PUMP OPERATION Manual
or Automatic You should select a manual pump
that you can turn on or off any time you need. An
automatic pump will shut down or activate
accordingly to the level of water in your sump.

HORSEPOWER An average sump pump will have 1/3-
horsepower.However.if you live in an area that
gets flooded often.you will need a higher power
rating.In this case,get a 1/2 - horsepower sump
pump. VOLTAGE Residential sump pumps only need
the standard 110-volts circuit, but industrial
ones may require 220 volts or higher

HEAD PRESSURE How high your pump can raise the
water.You need to choose the appropriate level of
pressure in order to avoid overflow. BACKUP AND
ALERTS If your sump pump should fail,you should
have an alaram system to let you know or a
battery-powered backup sump pump to take over

CORD LENGTH You never want to use extension cords
as a permanent solution,so make sure your cord
can reach a GFCL outlet COST Before you start
shopping for a new sump pump, establish a
realistic budget.That way, you will know how much
money you have to work with.
