Submersible sump pumps are activated by a float switch. When the water in the sump basin reaches a certain level the float will activate the pump. When the water level comes back down, the float switch will turn the pump off.

There are two main options when selecting the right residential electric sump pump. First option is the horsepower of the pump, which in part determines the water flow rate. The second option is choosing the submersible pumps float type. There are two different types of float switch sump pumps available, vertical and tethered.
The tethered float is the most common type of sump pump. The float is attached to the pump and floats on the water. As the water rises, the float rises to turn on the pump.
Tethered floats have been known to potentially get stuck on the pump or the inside wall of the sump basin, preventing the float to activate the pump, which could result in some flooding.
