Submersible Sump Pump

Definition

A completely immersible mechanical device used to remove water from wet areas such as basements and crawlspaces in order to help prevent flooding.

Things you need to know

Compared to pedestal sump pumps, submersible pumps are generally quieter, able to process greater quantities of water, and can handle particles or solids in the water.

Cost Considerations

Submersible sump pumps are generally more expensive than pedestal pumps. Not including the cost of installation and other necessary materials, a submersible sump pump generally runs $135 to $300. Plastic versions are less expensive than cast iron versions.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
