Installing a sump pump in your NYC home
We help you locate and dig to seal and install valves required in sump pump installation. There are two common types of sump pumps; pedestal/upright and submersible sump pump.
- Pedestal/ upright sump pump; it is installed above the sump pit exposing the electrical motor. It is thus unsafe and often louder. The pump has pipes running into the sump pit. Once the sump pit is filled, a float attached to a metal rod connecting to the switch rises to switch the pump on. Water from the pit is sucked to drain system.
- Submersible sump pump; this pump is designed to be immersed into the sump pit whether partial or fully. It is sealed water tight to protect the electrical parts, and are very quiet compared with the pedestal ones. Water in the sump pit is filtered through the pump preventing debris from being captured into the pump impeller. The impeller creates suction to draw the water towards a sewer system or drainage.
