Customer Questions & Answers

Is it posible to rotate and flip the float bracket so the pump runs longer opposed to more often?

We hit a spring when we built a new addition and the sump pump cycles every 20 seconds or so. I'm thinking if I flip the bracket and rotate it towards the cord I could have the pit fill higher before the pump recycles. Thus saving the start stops and posibly allowing the pump to last longer. I am replacing the pumps, on average, every four months. Or perhaps you may have a better solution, besides digging it out to daylight. (not enough fall) Thanks!

If you need a larger hysteresis (i.e. distance between on and off), another solution would be get an after market electronic, solid state, water level sensor made just for this kind of situation. You would first put the existing float sensor in the "on" position by zip tying or other securing method, then you would put the power plug into the receptacle A/C socket on the after market electronic water level sensor device. Then you manually position the two sensors that come with the after market device, one where you want the water level to turn it on, and the other where you want it to turn off. You then have full control of where it goes on and off. A good one for example is HC6000-Hi-Lo-Controller-Float-Switch

Why will my pump not turn off after it empties the sump pit?

This is a brand new pump which has been installed according to the directions and has a check valve. It turns on but will not turn off even when the float is at the end.
Asked by: Pharmalot
Check the float valve to ensure it's getting to the bottom of its travel. Ensure there are no obstructions around the float valve assembly and that it's operating smoothly.

How high is the water level before the pump kicks in

Asked by: 2221
About 7-8 inches off the bottom of the pump.

Should an air bleed hole be drilled (1/8") in the discharge pipe to prevent the pump from air locking?

Many sump pumps require an air bleed hole in the discharge pipe to prevent air locking. I am using a check valve and the installation instructions do not state this requirement. However, most sump pumps require the 1/8" hole to prevent the pump from air locking.
Asked by: Robb
I've been running my pump for about 6 months and haven't had an airlock problem yet, You could always drill the hole and if it creates a problem just put an oversized sheet metal screw in the hole to close it....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Last Worked for a month and then went out. Waste of money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable Bought this in a hurry after my last one quit in the middle of a storm. Well the reviews are right. After installing it worked fine and thinking I could sleep comfortably I woke to my basement flooded. The sump never switched on. I moved it and it started working. A few days later it got stuck on. They need to fix the float switch mechanism

Rated 1 out of 5 by from JUNK I have lived in our current home for the past 22 years And have not had the problems with sump pumps like with the 1/2hp Everbilt. We bought our first Everbilt 2 days ago. It made a very loud grinding noise every time it started up and 10-15 seconds later it made a gurgling sound. We took it back. The next day we exchanged it for another one (same make/model). It didn't work at all. We finally bought a Ridgid brand and it is very quiet. It was less than $10 more than the store brand Everbilt model. We haven't had any heavy rains or enough snow to test the Ridgid one. I would not recommend the Everbilt.

Using to pump rainwater from a broken vault-and-drain setup for 3-4 months, til we can get the driveway & drainage rebuilt. Cast iron base and steel drum sturdy and reassuring. In use for 2 weeks to date. Float valve working great so far. Went through a few freezes where the outlet hose froze; pump did not freeze and did not have to pump while hose was frozen; no ill effects to pump. My only dislike is it's made in China - would prefer USA, Mexico, Canada - prefer to keep my money in the North America economy.

Pump seems to work okay if power cord is in correct position, but slightly moving power cord can make the pump turn on and off. When I originally opened the box, the cord was bent over pretty bad (looked like it got mashed a little in shipping). But I tested it, and it worked, so I installed it. It seemed to work okay so I went to run an errand, but when I returned, the pump was two feet under water, and just wiggling the cord a little made it turn back on and empty the sump. I went back to the store, and looked at two others of the same model, and they both had the cords bent badly... clearly a packaging problem. I will return this pump and try to find another. On the plus side, installation was easy, and the pump does seem to work well when the cord is right. Two stars because the pump seems okay, and if you got one that didn't have a bent cord, you'd probably be okay.

This sump pump works well, but it's loud, which would not be a problem if it was not installed in the basement underneath my bedroom. I have only had this pump for one week but it's loud enough to the point where I will be taking it back to get the ultra quite model by ridged.
