Pump Housing Recommended For 3/4 HP Sump Pump
When it comes to 3/4 HP sump pumps, there are three types of housing material used: bronze, cast iron and stainless steel. the best housing is cast iron or bronze. Because of the volume of water pumped during continuous pumping, the housing can get heated. Both Cast iron and bronze are good dissipaters for heat.
Cast Iron and bronze add significant weight to the pump which decreases the chances of the float getting caught on the side of the pit because the pump will not move as much when pumping heavily and continuously for long periods of time.
Cast iron and bronze are not likely to crack or warp under heavy continuous pumping. Both materials dissipate heat; cast iron dissipates heat the best.
Stainless steel is a third choice housing material.
3/4 Submersible Sump Pump Pumping Performance
3/4 HP Submersible Sump Pumps can handle large volumes of water. The amount of water ranges from 51 gallons per minute (GPM) to 84 gallons per minute (GPM) or 3,060 GPH to 5,040 GPH at a 10 foot vertical lift.
Can A 3/4 HP Sump Pump Handle Continuous Pumping Over Long Periods Of Time?
3/4 HP sump pumps are built to pump continuously for long periods of time. In case they do overheat the motor is thermally protected and will shut off if it gets too hot. Many 3/4 HP pumps have inside parts that are cast iron such as the shaft and impeller which also better support continuous pumping.
Are Replacement Parts Available For 3/4 HP Sump Pumps?
Most 3/4 HP sump pumps have replacement parts available. Replacement parts are available because the housing material is built to last. The pumps cost more and generally the only thing that fails is the float/switch.
