What should be the horsepower of sump pump?

A pump with higher horse power pumps out water very fast and also consumes more electricity. So if you have a serious water logging problem in the basement then it is better to buy a pump of a greater horse power. It will stay ahead of incoming water and keep the basement dry. It will pump out the water before it can back up and overflow your sump pit. Make your sump pump pit a bit bigger so that water can stay in it without overflowing and the pump does not have to run so often.
