What is the current cost of a sump pump?
The cost of your sump pump will vary depending on the type and size needed to sufficiently protect your home. Therefore, we are unable to provide you with an accurate estimate before viewing your property. With that being said, most homeowners will qualify for municipal or city subsidies, so you can save money on your installation.

What’s better 1/3 hp or 1/2 HP sump pump?
A 1/2 HP sump pump will most likely be required if you live in an average household that has a higher-than-average water table. These types of sump pumps typically pump more than 1/3 HP equivalents and can manage more significant vertical lifts for pumping groundwater through your home’s outlet pipe. A 1/3 HP sump pump will then be adequate for the majority of average-sized residences in regions with median groundwater levels.

Is a sump pump required by code in Ontario?
Yes, sump pumps are mandatory in Ontario as per the Ontario Building Code of 2017. If you live in a home built in 2017 or later, you will already have a sump pump installed. However, if you live on a property that was built before 2017, you may not have one installed. As such, if your home is not already equipped with a sump pump, we encourage homeowners to reach out to the team at Oosterveld Heating as soon as possible to ensure your home does not suffer extensive water damage.
