The Pump

The Hydromatic® Sump Pump includes the finest pump available, a high end 1/3 hp cast iron pump with a wide-angle float switch. It pumps 38 gallons per minute, smoothly and quietly. It resists clogging and can pump up to 1/2" solids. It will perform reliably for many years. Although the pump is very quiet, the discharge line is equipped with 1 ½ rubber fittings for additional sound and vibration reduction.

Battery Backup System

Relying on a sump pump without an alarm makes no sense. If the circuit breaker trips, the pump cord is unplugged or the pump fails for any other reason, you experience costly floor damage without warning. The system sounds off (like a smoke detector) if the water rises above the point where the pump should turn on. The gives you warning to address the problem before any damage occurs.

The Sump Pump Liner

The 18" x 24" smooth wall polyethylene liner is rugged, heavy duty, and has holes to allow water to flow in directly from below the floor. It features a "pump ring" on the floor of the liner which prevents the switch from hanging up on the sidewalls by keeping the pump in the center.

The Sealed Lid

The lid keeps moisture from evaporating into your basement environment. It also keeps out bugs, odors, radon gas and quiets the pump. It keeps objects (tools, laundry, stored items) from falling into the sump hole. In fact, the lid is so strong, you can stand on it, and stack items on top so you don't sacrifice any storage space for the sump.

As a safety feature, it keeps children out, which is very important. It also features a 2-piece design so the pump can be serviced without disconnecting the discharge line.
