Don’t be fooled by misleading sump pump warranties and horsepower (hp) ratings of the super hardware stores. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. We use only professional contractor grade equipment with real warranties, not pro-rated or with fine print. More importantly hp ratings are accurate on our pumps.
They should be calculated in GPM (gallons per minute) rather than GPH (hourly) ratings that at a glance inflate the ratings of the pump. It is also important to take into consideration most homeowner’s pumps need to pump about 10 feet up. These hardware stores rate their pumps at 0 ft or 5 ft head (rise.) Not apples to apples.
