Q: Pedestal vs Non Pedestal sump pump??
by Jim Olson from California on January 03, 2011

A: Pedestal sump pumps have become less common and manufacturers are making fewer of them every year.

Here are some advantages of submersible pumps.

If you want a pump that's quiet, less likely to burn out, and can handle a high volume of water, a submersible pump is the style of pump to buy.

Noise Level - The motor and impeller are underwater, these pumps arenít as loud as a pedestal style pumps, that have their motor exposed above the sump pit.

Running Temperature Ė By having the motor below water, a submersible pump runs cooler especially during extended periods of use. Pedestal style pumps have no cooling fans, so their motor is cooled by the air around the pump, which is very ineffective during long run times.

Output & Solid Handling- Submersible sump pumps have higher outputs compared to Pedestal style sump pump. They're also able to handle solids that may be present that would otherwise clog a Pedestal pump.

If you havenít heard of Wayne Pumps before, you probably live in an area where sump pumps arenít needed. They been making pumps for the last 7 decades, and if you havenít owned one, you probably know somebody who has.

Wayne is one of the largest manufacturers of pumps in the US. They stand behind their products and offer a wide selection of sump, sewage and utility pumps.

Model PTU50 gets our "Better" recommendation for Pedestal Pumps for a few reasons.

My Sump Pump
I am very pleased with my pump. My basement was flooding until I replaced the old one with the new sump pump. I would highly recommend it.

My Basement - My Sump Pump
Without a sump pump I risk ground water leaking into my finished basement. An old house with a high water table I am at risk quite often. A dependable pump is a must and this Wayne PTU-50 pump has given excellent service. So good I now have two, one in service and a spare. I also keep a spare pump switch for JIC.
Pros: Durable, Fast, Reliable, High Quality

Wayne Sump Pump Order, Delivery & Installation Review
We had to rotate the base of the sump pump 90 degrees in order to align the switch, the float and the discharge opening for proper operation. Fortunately, since the replacement of the pump, we have not had any storm seepage into the sump pit.

Therefore the full operation of the system has not been verified. Thank you for the speedy delivery. The local suppliers were out of stock because of the demand caused by the the major storm known as Sandy. The shipping package came somewhat damaged.... more

Excellent Service
In June of this year I purchased a Flotec submersible pump from Sump Pumps Direct. Unfortunately it failed in less than 60 days. Sump Pumps Direct immediately shipped me a Wayne PTU50 and I received it the next day at their expense.

They also took back the failed Flotec and promptly issued a credit to my Pay Pal account.

I would not hesitate to recommend Sump Pumps Direct to anybody.

Thanks SPD!!!!

Outstanding Pump
I haven't used this sump pump yet. This is a replacement for my old one. The old one is fine, but I figured it was time for a replacement.

The old one is the same model as the new one, and it took me through two hurricanes, plus numerous rain storms. When the pump starts running, it'll run for around a month, which happens at least once a year.

I've used the old one for around six years, so if the new pump is as good as the old one, I'll be very pleased. It's the best pump I've ever... more
