What is a sump?
A sump in its most basic terms is a hole in the ground that is used to collect water. Sumps can be used as a way of collecting flood water from either basements/cellars, or other areas where unwanted water builds up. The sumps can then be fitted with submersible pumps or ‘sump pumps’ which will remove the unwanted water and pump it through a discharge pipe or hose up and out to a drain or somewhere suitable. Typically basement/cellar sumps are 2-3 feet deep and are located at the lowest point.
What type of pump do I need?
We sell a range of pumps suitable for use in a sump. For pumps with a float switch on a short cable such as the Pedrollo Top or the Speed Mop, the sump will need to be at least 350mm x 350mm x 350mm. For smaller sumps with limited space we would recommend the Top GM which features a vertical magnetic float switch. The model of pump will also be determined by the volume and the distance you are trying to move the water.
