Zoeller Sump Pumps: Reliability & Performance

Picking the right sump pump for your home or business can be no easy task. We all look for some common denominators, such as performance and dependability. However when it comes to knowing which pump perfectly suits your needs, there are other factors to consider. For instance, the required TDH and GPM of your application. Much like how Harry Potter’s wand picked the wizard, sometimes the pumps pick us. OK maybe not the best metaphor but these Zoeller pumps are definitely suited for a plethora of applications. Every Zoeller pump comes trusted, tested, and tough straight out of the factory. This means if you see the Zoeller name on the side of a pump, consider it dependable. This week we’re putting the spotlight on the Zoeller Model M98 and Zoeller Model M53 sump pumps. Let’s dive into why these models stand out over the competition.

Sump pumps are integral for any home or business. The idea behind how they work and their purpose is pretty simple. The humble sump pump’s task is to prevent basement flooding because water damage is no joke. Sump pumps work by kicking on when excess water is present, whether that’s groundwater or runoff from a heavy storm. Typically, a sump pump has an open basin under your basement floor, a drainage system, and the pump itself. When enough excess water rises in the basin, a switch kicks the pump on and begins the process of water drainage.

The Zoeller M98 Sump Pump also known as the “Flow-Mate” is designed for use in residential or light commercial dewatering applications and can be used to transfer groundwater or effluent. This durable cast iron pump includes a powder coated tough epoxy finish to prevent corrosion and is designed to provide great heat dissipation from the motor.  Zoeller has included tons of features to ensure a long service life and keep your pump running trouble-free. As with every Zoeller pump, the Zoeller M98 Sump Pump is 100% pressure-tested, submerged and run to ensure quality and reliability for years of trouble-free performance. This attention to detail is an inherent feature of every pump, making it one of the most reliable in the industry.

This model also features carbon and ceramic shaft seals and no screens to clog. The maximum working temperature is 130° F
