Q: Does the Jackel brand of Sump Pump Basins, Sump Covers, Sewage Basins, & Sewage Covers seal tight to protect against Radon gas infiltration? My building inspector said this is a requirement for passing code.

by Rich M from New Jersey on February 04, 2014

A: Thank you for your interest in Sump Pumps Direct. Only the SF30-PR/CIH4X1 with the SF16101 lid when sealed tight will prohibit gas from escaping.
The SF16101 lid is supplied with hold down bolts and a rubber seal that seals out the gases.

Q: Installing an underground sump pump to drain water coming under the house. Was thinking about ordering the following kit, but I am not sure if the basin is the correct one for a sump pump or if we should switch it to something bigger.
Zoeller 1050001 13 HP M53 Remote SinkDrain Pump System w Vertical Float Switch

Thank you,
Nestor Ho

A: Thank you for your interest in Sump Pumps Direct. It really depends on how you plan on getting the water into the sump basin. If you are doing a typical basement INSTALLATION, I would advise something more like the Zoeller model M53 or M98, depending on your water table. I would then suggest installing a standard SUMP BASIN and COVER. You can then tie this in to a french drain or you can drill holes in the basin to allow the water to seep through and into the basin for discharge by the pump. If you are looking to install this system outdoors or in a crawl space, the Liberty 1/3 HP Cast Iron Crawl Space Sump Pump Kit, model CSP-257 might be a better choice.
And don't forget the CHECK VALVE.

Good Product/bad Advice
The sump pump is exceptionally quiet and efficient. The cover could have had more holes or at least punch outs for the auxiliary pump.The basin came without holes pre-drilled and had no instructions as to the placement. I wrote an e-mail to the so-called experts at Sump Pumps Direct inquiring where to place the holes. I received back the advice to check online, that there were many places that gave this advice. After some searching I found one place with advice on placement, but was very... more

Great Quality
I recently purchased a Zoeller M53 sump pump and Jackel basin and cover. I could not be more pleased with the quality and operation of both. The pump is heavy duty and looks like it will last for ever.

I wish I knew about Jackel basins a few years ago. The basin is super strong and large enough for two pumps if needed.

Thanks for providing such quality products. Keep up the good work.
