Our Sump Protect Your Home and What Your Own


This is a frequently asked question, clients will say “my sump barrel is always full and I think I should install a larger pump in order to evacuate all of the water.”

My response is that bigger is not necessarily better. In most cases when talking about size in regards to sump pumps it is not the physical size of the pump, but rather the horsepower rating.

Typically a 1/3 hp pump is by far the most common in use but do come in varying sizes from ¼, Up to 1 hp for residential use. Your sump pump size should suit the need. A larger pump may remove the groundwater faster but draws a lot of amperage when started creating heat. Allowing your pump to run for a period of time will help to cool it down.

Cycling on/off will cause a premature sump pump failure which may lead to a flooded basement.


I don’t think one is really better than the other it’s the application that’s important in determining which one to choose.

Submersible sump pumps as their name implies are submersed in the sump barrel, the motor is Hermetically sealed and is cooled by the surrounding water. They generally use a tethered float switch to activate the pump although different switch styles are available. A larger sump barrel is required when using a tethered float as it must be allowed to float unobstructed.

Pedestal style sump pumps can be installed in a more confined space with smaller sump barrels due to the float rising vertically on a rod. The motor is not submersed in the water rather it is installed on the top of the pump and requires the ambient air for cooling.


In most cases discharge water from the sump pump is pumped outside the house either into a hose/pipe and  directed away or onto a splash pad.

It is possible in some cases to get a relaxation of the bylaw to allow sump discharge to be piped directly into the sewer but each case is judged individually and it is up to the jurisdiction. NEVER DO THIS WITHOUT PROPER AUTHORITY.

Groundwater entering the sanitary sewer system during a storm can cause it to be overloaded leading to catastrophic sewer backups.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Do I need to install a bigger Sump Pump?
  • What style of Sump Pump do I need – Submersible or Pedestal?
  • Can I discharge groundwater from the sump into the sewer?

Note: Proper grading of the landscaping around your home to direct the discharge away from the foundation is generally sufficient.
