So far, in our series of videos to educate homeowners and consumers about sump pumps, Barry Schilling first discussed how to choose a sump pump, explaining the differences between the pedestal style of pump and the more common submersible style. He has also explained the importance of understanding pumping capacity and why consumers should consider how a pump will be used in their basement or crawl space when considering manufacturers’ capacity claims.
In this video, Barry explains the different types of float switches on sump pumps and why some are more prone to failure than others.
