You also need to remember that the labor costs to install or replace a sump pump will have an impact on your total bill 🔥 If the job is relatively straightforward with only minor digging and prep work, then the final price tag may be on the more affordable end of the spectrum 😊 If your contractor needs to do a complete overhaul of your property to get the sump pit and sump pump in place, then you’ll be looking at a lot more money and time. Many contractors charge per hour of work, and they could give you a time estimate to help you set your budget for this project. If they encounter hidden problems that tack on time and work, this could increase the had cost of your sump pump improvements. 
Two main types of sump pumps 1 are available: pedestal and submersible, ranging from $80 to $300. Many homeowners wonder what the benefits are of a pedestal vs. A submersible system. The answer depends on each property’s requirements and structural design. A pedestal unit sets the pump on a tall stand so that it isn’t directly in the water in the pit, and then a pipe connects to the bottom of the pit and pulls the water out. On the other hand, a submersible pump sits in a waterproof casing in the sump pit’s water. When the water level rises, water comes up through the bottom and is pulled through towards the outlet pipes 2 on top. The biggest factor in choosing which kind of pump to use is the size of your basement and the had average cost. 
Based upon further reading from mybuilder.com, pump’s are available from Screw fix/Trade Counter,but choosing the right one is important, it all depends on the flow rate required and also the “head”,flow rate speaks for itself while “head” determines how high the water needs to be pumped vertically before running off horizontally. Pump’s with automatically operated floats look after themselves to a large extent, although cleaning debris from around the base filter periodically is a good idea. Dependant on where the pump has to be situated, it is usually a good idea to sit the pump in it’s own small sunken p.c.c. ( pre cast concrete) chamber about 600mm x 600mm and about 750mm deep, this allows room for the float to rise un-obstructed. Because the pump will be left switched on, it is a good idea to plug it in through a R.C.D adapter. The chamber can be left open or fitted with a perforated lid dependent on where it is situated. Cost of pump anything from £40-£70 dependant on type, other cost’s depend on length of pipework e.t.c.
