Customer Questions & Answers

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
I bought a replacement float switch for this pump. It had free travel and would work it I raised it all the way to the top. The job was removing 3 screws holding the float switch and unscrewing the plug. The float switch became faulty within 2 years. Home Depot had the replacement part on the shelf for $40.

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

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
Manufacturers instruction say drill hole. They do that for a reason and most sump pumps require this.

1/2 HP Submersible Sump Pump is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 75.
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.

We have rental properties and one in particular has a basement issue. We had everything fixed and future flooding was to be eliminated....until the old pump finally quit working. I did some quick research about best pumps to get, what was available in my area and what appeared to be a reliable option by way of reading reviews. This one was readily available at my local HD store and got good reviews so now I have it installed in the rental property. Only time will tell the longevity/dependability of this pump but hopefully I will not even think about it for another 10 to 15 years.

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.

We were getting rain every day for a week and the water was coming into the sub pump hole in a large rate. I bought this to replace a 1/3 hp pedestal pump and it lasted less than a week before the switch went out. I had to run and get another pump before the house flooded. This wasn't worth the time or trouble it caused. I returned the pump and won't be buying this brand again.

I've only had this pump installed for a few days, but so far it seems to be working as expected. It was replacing a slightly larger pump and I had concerns that is wouldn't be able to handle the constant use that I was demanding, but it seems to be able to hold its own. Check back in five years for the real answer :)

The true test of a sump pump is in the long haul, but early returns are good. I can say that the pump was easy to install and very quiet. I've had the pump for around a month now, and it's been running almost non-stop with the deluge of rain we've had this spring and I've had no issues.

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.
