The oldest independently owned pump manufacturer in the United States is Zoeller. It had its beginnings in 1939. Its first popular pump product was the dependable pedestal (column) sump pump. In recent years Zoeller has acquired the following additional pump companies: Clarus Environmental and Flint & Walling. Zoeller pumps include utility, sewer, sump, well, pool and lawn pumps as well as commercial pumps. 
Zoeller is known as the plumbers choice for home sump pump installation. Consumers also rate Zoeller pumps very highly. Zoeller pumps use high quality cast iron which provides durability and weight so the pumps move little during pumping. All Zoeller pumps are made in the USA and are tested before leaving the factory.
Existing models have been around for many years. However, Zoeller has recently introduced the 508-005 backup sump pump which pumps 30 gpm at 10 feet or 1800 gph which is twice as much as the 507-005. The Zoeller 508-005 allows connection to home security alarms and auto dialers to provide monitoring information to the homeowner when away from home.

Flint Walling and Star

Flint & Walling began operations in 1866. Their first products were the hand operated pump and the Star Windmill. In 1899 this pump manufacturer produced 15,688 pumps. Today Flint & Walling is the United States company to product its own 50Hz and 60 Hz motors for jet and centrifigal pumps. in 1985 they became a division of Mascol Company. In 2009 they became part of the Zoeller company. When reviewing Flint & Walling sump pumps, note how similar they are in design and construction material to the Zoeller sump pump.
