In shallow basin to avoid sucking air could you reduce the pipe size or throttle it with a valve during 10 sec run time?

Answer: 
That pump will start drawing air when the water level drops down to 1 3/4". Once the float switch is activated it will run for about 10 seconds then stop. So for example if you only have the float switch set to activate after 3 inches of water. Its probably going to pump water for a second or two then draw air the rest of the time. The best way to have it setup is to mount the float switch high enough so Read More

The best way to have it setup is to mount the float switch high enough so that when the 10 second run time is up its still leaving about 2-3 inches of water over the bottom of the pump. You always want to avoid having the pump draw air if possible. Read Less

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth the investment This was a replacement for the main pump on the watchdog combo after 10 yrs the pump and battery both died the same week well I got my money's worth very very happy with this product highly recommend and their customer service was great to deal with as far as the backup pump goes it still working thanks watchdog for a great reliable well made product August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Small footprint, fast, quiet, good value My old pump ran every 15 minutes for 6-7 seconds, rain or shine, winter or summer and lasted 6-1/2 years. I replaced it with a new Basement Watchdog pump that only runs every few hours. The new pump is much quieter and the water does not hammer the check valve like the old 3/4 HP Flotec. Also saving on electricity, the new pump uses 3.5 amps the old one used 7 amps. With my very active rusty water sump, only time will tell how long this new pump will last. The only con I could find is the non-adjustable run time. Because of the fixed 10 second run time I had to mount the float higher then the recommended height (the upper float trip is above the drain pipe), so that the pump would not run dry. August 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeps the water out Simply to install and works better than I expected. The on and off float is GREAT! March 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective out of box I bought this back in March to back up my still-working sump pump in case it failed. We had a wet spring/early summer so I let the old one keep going. Fast forward to July and I just installed it and it doesn't work, won't even pump water out of a 5 gallon bucket. Just sits there and hums when directly plugged in to outlet in "continuous duty" mode. I was able to reinstall my old pump with no trouble, but unfortunately I'm beyond the 90 day HD return period so I have to pay to ship this defective pump back to the manufacturer. Moral of the story - test your pump in a bucket right away even if you're not ready to install it immediately! July 7, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good This pump was easy to install, though it's worth pointing out that the outlet is high - if you have a shallow well and a horizontal bend to the outflow pipe, like mine, it could be a tight fit. Positive notes: it's quiet and fast. We've had it installed for over a month without incident. The well empties in seconds. I didn't measure the actual electrical usage, I'm trusting the box where it says it's efficient. It would be nice if the shut-off delay was configurable. As it is, it continues to run for ten seconds after the water level goes below the switch. I have to have the float switch awfully high in the well, but it still empties it out and sucks air for about a second. August 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product seems to deliver what it promises With this product, the manufacturer boasts that the pump doesn't take up much room in a sump. That claim is true. The mfr. also supplies an electronic switch that, they say, will out-perform several other styles of switch. The type supplied is the same as the one they use for their battery backup units. I can personally attest to the fact that those switches are fool-proof and last a long time, if not forever. Other than the warranty, I'm unaware of any claim for the pump longevity, so I cannot comment on that, especially since I'm using this pump as a standby backup for my main pump. October 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2nd Review after one year of service This is an update to last year's review. I installed the pump with a Kill-a-watt meter so I could calculate the number of times the pump ran. In 365 days the pump ran 6252 times without any problems. This pump is small with its top exit port and leaves plenty of room for our back-up pump. I also like that this pump is quite, as our sump is directly below our bedroom. We hear the water more than the pump itself. NOTE; I did have to mount the float assembly higher than recommended so that the pump never runs dry. August 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great "little" pump I have a lot of ground water in the spring and my pumps goes off 2-3 times a minute so I burn our switches and sometimes pumps often. The sump area is plenty deep enough but narrow enough to make putting two full sized pumps difficult. I had a battery backup pump that was small but that finally went. Since I have a whole house generator I started looking at 120v pumps that could fit and found this one. It's only 6" in diameter and the switch can be centered over the pump so in no way interferes with my 3/4hp pump. Plus the 1/3 hp 2200gph means that it will keep up even in the spring. This is the only one i found that had the water exit out the top and a float that wouldn't interfere with the float on my second pump.... great idea.... March 25, 2011
