The online retailer and reviews site currently lists more than 200 sump pump models and publishes more than 1,000 reviews from actual customers and shoppers.
The new algorithm generates a specific letter grade for every individual sump pump, allowing Sump Pumps Direct to now publish the most comprehensive 2013 sump pump lists online.
“Some best-selling lists online are randomly generated by affiliate sites looking for a commission,” said Jim Owiecki, pump expert at SumpPumpsDirect.com. “Other top-rated lists by magazines are so old that most models are already discontinued.”
According to Owiecki, the Sump Pumps Direct lists are the best source for 2013 pump rankings for three distinct reasons:
1. Three Lists in One
The word “best” means different things to different people. SumpPumpsDirect.com publishes lists that can be sorted three ways. Shoppers can sort sump pumps by best selling, top-rated or expert recommended models. In addition, the results can be filtered, narrowing the selection of pumps significantly.
One list wasn’t good enough for SumpPumpsDirect.com. The online retailer created separate lists for each of the five styles of sump pumps, ranging from primary sump pumps to WiFi connected backup pumps.
The majority of best-selling lists are updated once a year, showcasing discontinued pumps that were popular last year. Sump Pumps Direct's lists, however, are updated in real-time, highlighting what’s hot and what’s popular in 2013.
“Best of all, actual sump pump users influence the algorithm daily. If you don’t agree with our letter grade, you simply submit a review, which instantly alters the ranking,” said Owiecki, who personally works directly with all of the leading manufacturers and actual customers before recommending the highest quality pumps.
SumpPumpsDirect.com doesn’t require a sign-up form or a subscription. The retailer’s goal is to educate shoppers with free information, helping them pick the perfect pump.
"We're so passionate about sump pumps that we're delighted to share this valuable information for free," said Owiecki.
