ejector pumps and sump pumps in chicago: What You Should Know
It may not seem obvious, but there are some pretty big differences between sump pumps and ejector pumps.
Sump pumps are usually designed to handle clear groundwater—otherwise known as seepage—that comes into the house from a high water table and often comes up through the basement floor through cracks, or near the perimeter. There are a number of sump pump types we use, ranging from standard use to heavy-duty.
Ejector pumps, conversely, are usually more heavy-duty than sumps. They’re designed specifically to handle wastewater—sewage—that may come off from a basement bathroom, or even the entire house or building. These pumps, much like sumps, have both residential and commercial applications, though it pays to know which kind you’re looking for before you purchase any.
Why Should You Install An Ejector or a Sump Pump?
If you’re looking for a nice, simple machine that will keep out seepage and make sure your basement is nice and dry, this is the product for you.
If you need an effective way consistently keep wastewater out of your home or business, with no worry or fuss, this is what you’re looking for instead.
Should You Get Both?
If you think you need both, it can seem like an expensive decision to make—and not just for the initial installation, but for any required maintenance or continuing support that may be required later on.
