It is hard to believe we use products in our homes today that have their roots in designs which are more than 130 years old.Â When it comes to sump pump products, however, that is absolutely true.
At Chapman we are proud to install sump pumps manufactured by Myers. In business since the 1870â€™s when they first introduced a dependable double-acting hand pump, today they offer a full line of sump pumps, sewage pumps and effluent pumps. Even after all these years they continue to set the standard for quality, value and reliability.
Their product line includes:
Submersible Cast Iron Sump Pumps
These products are installed in the lowest portion of your basement or crawl space. Since water will naturally flow downhill this is where water typically collects. A hole is dug for the sump and the submersible pump is installed under the floor.Â This is the most common and simplest operating sump pump available. As the sump well fills with water, a float switch is triggered.Â The water is then pumped out of the area into a storm drain, dry well or retention pond.
The key features of the Myers Model MC1033 Series
- Performance where it counts with 40 GPM at 10â€™

Battery and Water-Powered Backup for your Sump Pump System
Homeowners in central Indiana rely on their sump pumps most during extreme weather. Unfortunately the high wind and lightening, which often accompany heavy rains that flood basements, may cause short term power outages.
Battery and Water-Powered backup pumps help protect the basement from water damage by kicking into action during power outages or primary sump pump failures.
We typically recommend one of the Glentronics, Inc.Â Pro series battery backup systems or the Water Commander water powered backup pump.
