There are a few key differences between these two models. The three most important differences are the price, body material and pump horsepower. Keep reading to learn more about the pro’s and con’s of each.
One of the biggest differences between the Mighty Mate and the 91250. The Superior pump is considerably cheaper and costs about $50 while the M53 costs over $150 dollars. The higher price tag comes with a longer working life, better body shell and more powerful motor but may not be worth the extra money in some cases.
The M53 features Zoller’s normal cast iron green shell that provides protection from normal wear and tear, is rust resistant and unlikely to leak – but it does cost more. The Superior Pump 91250 has a thermoplastic shell that is cheaper to manufacture but offers less overall protection.
One of the most important differences between these two models is the pump horsepower. The M53 has a 3/10 HP pump which is enough power for most normal sized homes. The Superior Pump on the other hand has a slightly smaller pump 1/4 HP which is still likely enough power for most sump systems.
