Sump Pumps


Is there a sump pump that I can get that won't rust up, and burn up the motor after 2 years. One I can get for less than $800 bucks. At a $200 pump per year I am getting frustrated.

Sump Pumps


The wayne company makes sump pumps in many materials from Stainless steel, thermoplastic and cast iron and in many HP. They are guaranteed for 5 years and some have lifetime warrantees. Typing Sump Pumps into your searchbar will give you a lot of companies to check-out.

Sump Pumps


How much water do you need to remove per day, per week, per month?

It would be better to reduce the amount of water that gets to the sump pump. Direct all water away from the home. Have all downspouts divert rain water at least 10-20 feet away from the home.

What brand/model are you using now? Where are you buying the pump? Are you sure its the right pump for the job?

Sump pumps have to work in harsh environments and we demand quite a bit of them. The one you keep buying isn't up to the task if you're only getting two years from it, but perhaps you're working the fool out of it, or its not intended for the particular installation you have it in.

Tell us more about it.
