Question: What type of sump pump is the most durable?
Top Answer (56% of 46 votes): Submersible sump pump.

Answer: Submersible sump pump
Explanation: Submersible sump pumps have self cooling motors (uses water as a coolant for the motor) so the pump will last much longer. In addition to the cooling properties the pumps impeller is always under water which creates a self priming situation, which means the pump will never go dry or need priming. Its also much quieter since the water insulates the sound. All together a submersible pump is a much better choice.
