Pedestal vs Non Pedestal sump pump??
Jim Olson 
from California 
January 03, 2011
Answer
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 aren’t as loud as a pedestal style pumps, that have their motor exposed above the sump pit.

Running Temperature – 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.

What is a Vertical Float Switch?
Jon 
from Illinois 
December 29, 2010
Answer
A vertical float switch is a ball that floats above the water. As the water level rises so does the float which, at some point, it will trigger the switch to turn the pump on. This float has limited movement up and down and side to side, giving it less freedom of movement and less of a chance to get stuck as a tethered float would.
