How big of HP do I need for my sump pump?

In most cases, bigger is not better and the sump pump should be sized for your application. A professional contractor will verify how quickly your sump pump fills up and make sure that your system is appropriately sized. An oversized pump will result in quick turn-ons and offs and could burn out the pump, where as an undersized system could cause basement flood. Using a professional contractor for installation and maintenance is your best solution to protecting your basement from flooding.
