Weigh the benefits. If you want material that is strong, then go with cast iron; something that is very resistant to corrosion, then thermoplastic it is. Both last five to seven years, so you have to decide which is best for you!


Cast Iron vs. Thermoplastic

Submersible pumps have three main benefits: They sit below the basement saving you space, operation is fairly quiet, and they are more powerful than their pedestal pump counterparts.


Pedestal pumps are great for those basements or crawl spaces that only ever experience a small amount of flooding. They are an inexpensive pump option that tend to last longer than submersible ones.


The higher the horsepower, the more water that will be pumped out of your basement. So, if you live in a low-risk flood zone, 1/4 might be best for you. Ask your technician if you're not sure!

With a flood protected basement, your house will look much more appealing to potential buyers.

Increase Property Value

Dampness and Humidity Control

Standing water gives any room a humid, musty feel. Sump pumps prevent this!

Mold and Damage Prevention

With flooding comes mold, and no one wants that spread around your home. Sump pumps eliminate the chance that mold will grow and damage your home.

Ensure Structural Integrity

Water isn't as harmless as you might think. Let it stand long enough and it can cause the structure of your home to weaken or collapse.

Not having a sump pump is almost the same as throwing buckets of water into your basement. You wouldn't do that, so why hold back on getting a sump pump any longer? Call your local sump pump installation experts at Lake Cook Plumbing today!
