Sump pump designs have drastically improved throughout the years, coming up with new and better features to protect your basement from flood damage. Unfortunately, there still may be some older sump pumps installed in homes and still being sold in the marketplace. Certain pumps are known to easily overheat or clog, leaving you with an unreliable system in the event of a flood.

Benefits of the Zoeller® Sump Pump:

Powerful Pumping Ability

At Foundation Recovery Systems, we install the powerful Zoeller® M53 and M98 models. Combined with our battery backup system, these pumps make for a powerhouse sump pump system that is up to the job of keeping your basement dry. Other models are available for unique circumstances
Zoeller® Pump Features:

  • The Zoeller® M53 pumps up to 2,220 gallons per hour at an 8′ head.
  • The Zoeller® M98 pumps up to 3,900 gallons per hour at an 8′ head.

(“Head” is how high the pump must send the water before it exits the home. A lower “head” means more gallons per hour, while a higher “head” will slightly reduce the gph.)

Heat-Dispersing, Engineered Build

Our primary and secondary sump pump systems are designed with cast-iron Zoeller® Sump Pumps. Unlike plastic sump pumps that often overheat and fail, cast-iron pumps transfer heat from the engine casing to the water outside. This naturally cools the sump pump motor during operation. Our pumps are designed with the cast iron around the center of the pump, instead of only at the base. This, combined with the distinctive single-casing design, allows for a maximum in heat dispersion and pump life.
Zoeller® Pump Features:

  • Single engine casing design for maximum heat transfer
  • Cast-iron core design for cooler operation

Reliable Float Switch

One of the most common weaknesses of sump pump systems is the float switch that turns on when the water rises. If this switch jams in an “off” or “on” position, it can lead to pump failure or sump pump burnout. The Zoeller® sump pump switch includes several design elements that help prevent jamming.
Zoeller® Pump Features:

  • Locked-in sump pump arm that is not “free-floating”
  • Solid, non-hollow plastic design prevents floating switch from filling with water.
  • Mounted sump pump design keeps the pump from “wandering” due to vibration and jamming the sump switch against the edge of the sump liner.

Clog-Resistant Pump Intake

Sump pump systems will occasionally gather dirt, debris, and other materials within the sump pump liner. Over time, sump pumps with screened intake valves will clog. Some unscreened models will clog with dirt and debris, shutting the system down and leading to a flood. Zoeller® provides sump pump systems that address both these critical issues.
Zoeller® Pump Features:

  • No-screen design helps prevent the system from clogging on inlet to pump
  • The powerful Zoeller® impeller can handle 1/2″ solids with ease
  • Installed in sump pit on a stand that keeps it away from silt and sediment settling on the bottom of the liner.
