Sump Pumps

Submersible pumps are versatile devices that can be used in various situations, making them an essential tool for many applications. Whether you need to drain water from a basement/cellar, pool, or other waterlogged areas, it’s crucial to determine the specific requirements for your project.

One important consideration is the type of water that needs to be drained. Submersible pumps are designed to handle different types of liquids, including clean water, dirty water, or even sewage. By understanding the nature of the water you need to remove, you can select a submersible pump with the appropriate capabilities to ensure efficient and reliable operation.

Another factor to consider is the intended location for the pump. If you have a designated space where the pump will be permanently installed, it is recommended to choose a submersible pump with a float. This float mechanism enables the pump to automatically switch on and off based on the water level. When the water reaches a certain level, the float triggers the pump to start, and it stops once the desired water level is reached. This automation feature not only saves you time and effort but also protects against potential water damage by preventing overflow.

At AES Rewinds, we offer a wide range of submersible pumps with various specifications and features to suit your specific needs. Whether you require a submersible pump for residential, commercial, or industrial applications, we have you covered. If you are looking for a small sump pump or a sump pump with a float switch our knowledgeable staff can assist you in selecting the perfect submersible pump that meets your requirements and provides optimal performance.

What size sump pump do I need?

To select the correct sump pump, first determine the vertical height difference in meters between the pump and its discharge point. Then, for every 10 meters of horizontal distance, add 2.5 meters. This will give you the ‘static head’ – you need to ensure that your pump is capable of delivering this. Check the ‘Technical Information’ on the pump’s page to make sure you don’t exceed this. For example, the Drain Buddy 400 pumps has a maximum head of 8 meters.

What is a sump pump for?

A sump pump is a device used to remove water that has accumulated in a water-collecting sump basin, commonly found in basements. It helps prevent flooding by pumping the water out to a designated location, such as a storm drain or dry well. Sump pumps are especially useful in areas with high water tables or in homes prone to flooding.

How does a sump pump work?

When water enters the pit, the pump is activated either by a float switch or a sensor. The pump then pumps the water out of the pit and away from the building to prevent flooding. The water is usually discharged through a pipe that leads outdoors or into a drainage system. Sump pumps are essential for preventing water damage in basements and crawl spaces.
