What are the Different Types of Sump Pumps?
Jet pumps: These sump pumps offer a variety of benefits. Jet sump pumps are efficient at binding a current energy foundation like you would find with a compressor on a total recycle. This unit can also benefit a high water pressure well to increase its production. The carbon footprint of a well is also reduced due to the jet pump binding an energy foundation that might have been wasted.
Submersible pumps: This device is submerged in water and needs very little maintenance. If there is a problem with the unit, any electrical assembly between the power outlet and the motor should be examined prior to removing this pump from the area with water.
Sewage pumps: These pumps make it possible to build homes in areas that were once uninhabitable. However, sewage pumps can malfunction at times. Raw sewage can become backed up if the pump stops working. A common cause of sewage pump problems is a freeze or a clog. If the pump has frozen, this can then cause the waste water in the tank to freeze and unable to be pumped out. When this happens, the tank inside the sewage pump needs to be dug up and then buried deeper to avoid further freezing.
Another issue with sewage pumps is clogging. Large fragments of debris will trap smaller pieces of debris. If the pump starts to run slower than usual, contact your plumber for help right away.
