How To Buy a Sump Pump


Sump pumps are sold at most major home improvement stores and online sump pump retailers. Depending on the sump pump you purchase, you can install it yourself or hire a professional. Many do-it-yourself companies, like Basement Self Solve, offer sump pumps that are easy for you to install yourself.

When you purchase a sump pump there are a few things you need to consider:

  • sump pump horsepower
  • Sump pump pumping capability (gallons per hour)
  • Battery ran or generator
  • Size
  • Installation
  • Life/warranty

While you don’t have to, many companies offer a sump pump pit and sump pump pit kit. Other parts you can purchase include a high water alarm which will let you know when water is at a dangerous level.
