Which sump pump should I buy?


Want to replace my old 30 year old sump pump since I'm not sure when it will fail and I don't know if I'll be here when it does and I figure I might as well since I'm going to be adding in a battery back up sump pump. Which brand should I get? I see Zoeller, Wayne, and the Ridgid brand all have good reviews. Thanks

I replaced my with Zoeller 5 years ago. I researched online & talked to people this brand is the best. It has been doing well and quiet.

In case it might help, here are a couple pictures of my sump pit and pump...the first is of the pit compared to a 5 gallon bucket (bucket is smaller) and the second is of the inside of the pit and the pump.

Zoeller is always recommended. Have been hearing it 30+ yrs. Get the same float system. With limited room, straight up/down float is best.
