Product Description

Sump pumps are widely used in crawlspaces and basements for draining accumulated water. Many low-lying countries suffer from water accumulation post even minor rain showers. The use of a sump pump removes water that has accumulated in a water collecting sump basin. Water enters the basement via perimeter drains of the basement waterproofing system, because of rain, natural ground water or funnelling into the basin, especially if the basement is below water table level. This is when a sump pump finds use in one’s house.

Of the numerous sump pumps available in the market, Wayne CDU800 ½ HP Submersible Cast Iron and Steel Sump Pump is widely popular. Cast iron base, cast iron pump housing and a top cover of thermoplastic forms the framework of the CDU800 Submersible Sump Pump. The vertical float switch along with the steel guard has been designed with such precision, protruding from the top of the pump, that it protects the float from ever getting caught on the basin wall. The float arm rises to a specified height with rising water, which triggers the switch turning the pump on.
