Essentially, the sump pit in your basement will determine which pump you select. Because submersible pumps must be placed below water, you’ll need a bigger pit than with a pedestal pump. The fact these pumps operate underwater provides some nice benefits. As the pump motor and impeller are underwater, their noise level is reduced. Another benefit of a submersible sump pump is that the water helps to cool the motor, which is especially important during extended periods of use. Think about it, the last thing you want is your pump overheating and breaking down in the middle of a torrential downpour. This is what leads to flooded basements.

If you have a shallow or narrow sump pit, look at a pedestal sump pump instead.

Sewage Pumps

Some basement or below ground toilet installations use what is called a "" system. These are essentially toilets with a sewage pump attached – usually located in a sealed housing installed right behind the toilet or right behind the wall where the toilet is installed. Sometimes this can be a good option as you won't need to break up your concrete flooring, but be careful to note how high the pump can lift the waste as these pumps are sometimes smaller than the average sewage pump. Most macerating toilet systems use a type of sewage pump called a "grinder" pump since it literally helps to grind up sewage into smaller particles, similar to the way a garbage disposal works.   Grinder pumps can be used in complete macerating systems or on their own in place of a regular sewage pump. And although they do grind stuff up, you still need to refrain from flushing anything other than human waste and toilet paper when using a grinder pump.

Effluent Pumps

Effluent pumps are similar to sewage pumps in that they are capable of pumping waste solids – although these pumps can usually only handle solids up to 3/4" or less in diameter. The water typically being drained by an effluent pump is considered "greywater" as it is not sewage water, but is not clean water either. For example, effluent pumps are commonly used for laundry discharge, dishwasher and sink drainage, sump pits that collect a lot of dirt or debris, and similar situations. We do offer several types of pump packages to accommodate specific greywater applications, so it might be more practical and cost-effective to choose one of these depending on your situation.
