Make sure you install it correctly. I first did not align it properly and it was noisy operation and not shutting down. After re-positioning it into correct position it worked like a charm. So based on my observation - it takes its time to collect waste ~ 5-6 high efficiency toilet flashes. Then it only takes a few seconds to pump it out and almost silent. For some reason, I do not hear back flow valve slap with this pump. I used to hear with old & failed Flowtech 3/4 pump (although after over 12 years of service). Flowtech pump besides being more powerful would only collect 1-2 flashes and run for about 20 secs, and back valve would make a loud slap when it stops. Anyway, as this pump has a wide angle switch - you need to make sure it has enough clearance to float freely. I like the fact activates less frequently. My 30" basin is pretty large, no need to pump after every flash. Hope it will last, as it is not house activities anyone would look forward to do :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greg Nice big pump
I had a smaller pump that just wouldn't do the job. This pump will easily consume up to 2" solids and pump them with ease. It's quiet and fast. Installation was simple, although I already had the basin and sewage lines installed. Don't forget the backflow valve when putting this in. This is the perfect pump for basement bathrooms, or like in my case, connecting a second building to the house. Its a much better alternative than a toilet with the pump built into the base because this lets you add a full plumbing set up to any area as opposed to just a toilet. I've installed a toilet, sink and a water fountain off this setup.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JTS GREAT experience
I usually tell my wife "this repair will only take an hour". 4-5 hours later and 1-3 trips to HD and the job is finally finished. Replacing my sewage pump took 35 minutes - YEA, 35 minutes. And the only trip to HD was to purchase the pump and 2 parts (1 of which I will be returning). Easy to install (hefty @ 40#) and runs more quietly than a baby sleeping. Don't think twice, buy it, install it, move on with your life.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LIJ Well Built Pump. Works Well.
Heavy duty, sturdy, well built pump. Installation is very straight forward and not difficult, even for a novice like me. The instructions were very simple and easy to understand and follow. I was replacing a 15 year old pump that finally died so since the discharge pipe and vent pipe were already in place all I had to to was remove the old pump, install the new pump, plug it in and I was done. I tested the pump numerous times before tightening down the cover to the basin and it worked perfectly every time. I couldn't be happier with the pump. I read some reviews that said the pump was rather loud when running, however I don't find that to be true. I can barely hear the pump when it kicks on and it only runs for a few seconds which is nice. My old pump, once it kicked on, ran for much longer than this pump and was much louder. This pump is pumping the same amount of water, if not more, than the old pump and doing it in a much shorter time. I am very happy with this pump and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Durable pump with a good warrantee
The pump is working and doing its job. However, I'd like to know how this pump lasts over time. Unfortunately, most reviews are at time of purchase.

I have this in place of a sump pump for a laundry room.
The sump pump did ok, but a sewage pump is better. If you need to replace a sump pump, buy this sewage pump and be done with it. This is a much more heavy duty system which will not let you down.
This pump can pass 2" solids which is beyond what I will ever need it for but I would rather have the power and capability if I ever need it.
It 40 pounds of solid construction. It never needs priming and excels using only a 115V system
Operation is very smooth and quiet and would never buy another sump pump again

Does what it is supposed to. Quite noisy compared to the previous pump.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tanner08 Energy efficient sewage pump
We are using this pump for a newly installed basement bathroom. The pump was connected to an existing sewer line and did not produce any installation difficulties. Since this bathroom is a work in progress and not yet completed, I can only review what I have observed about this pump. Our initial test produced very good results, and I expect the pump to provide us with years of service. The energy efficient motor should help in keeping down our electric bill.
