Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "Which is better? A thermoplastic or cast iron sump pump?"
A.There is no right or wrong answer to this question. Both thermoplastic and cast iron pumps are designed to last you a long time and the materials are comparable in function. Cast iron sump pumps are naturally somewhat stronger, which may be important depending on the your specific pump needs and the location of the pump. The 5050CVPD pedestal sump pump featured on this page has a cast iron base, but also uses a non-corrosive stainless steel drive shaft, stainless steel impeller, and stainless steel float ball for even more durability.
Q. How do I know if I need a pedestal sump pump or regular sump pump?
A.Generally, pedestal sump pumps are used in areas where regular sump pumps won't fit or aren't needed. They are narrower and thinner than most standard sump pumps. Pedestal-style pumps also have the motor mounted above the sump, allowing easier access for servicing the pump. However, it is important to note that the motor of your pedestal sump pump should never be submersed. If your sump basin or pit will be entirely under water on a regular basis, a standard style sump pump where the motor is sealed might be more suited to your needs.
