sump pump sizing

plumber-alOctober 12, 2012

Looking for information on how to determine GPM load from footing drain tile in order to size sump pump. I realize there are many variables to take into consideration like drain tile size and soil type.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Depends on how much water flows into the pit.

There is usually no reliable way to tell ahead of time.

If you have a pit you can easily time how long it takes the water to rise and what volume of water that represents.
