Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Flotec Sump Pump
I had 2 of these pumps in my basement that I bought 3 years ago and when we got the Hurricane Irene the water table came up and these pumps ran for 8 days None stop they never shut off and I was very concerned because I have a finished basement if one of the pumps would have shut down I would have had very extensive damage. These pumps are very efficient and pump over 4000 GPH and they are only 1/2 HP. I just replaced both pumps with the same Model because I just did not want to take a chance in the future but they both still worked fine. I did a lot of research and these are the best pumps on the market.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dwhit Outstanding and quite powerful
I installed this pump 2 months ago. It is used only for gray water and not storm water. The installation was fairly easy. I installed a new PVC pipe and check valve. I had to shorten the tether 1/2 inch so the float would be free at high tide and low tide. It is quite powerful and if I am doing a laundry, afterwards the water in my toilet just above the pit is very low. Apparently the power sucks some of the toilet water with the pump discharge. It's no problem, but it is something that was unexpected. When I tell my friends, they laugh.

I hired someone to install the sump pump for me. They rated everything excellent. We are relying this pump to do the job for us, and we know that it will! Also, the ordering on-line process was stress free. I had an excellent employee on the phone with me to determine which product to order and everything went very smoothly. I would order on-line again and would recommend it to others. It was a stress free process.

I bought this not knowing how strong my old sump pump was to establish a baseline - since it looked like an old rusty sunken battleship. Without a doubt, it pumps water through at least twice as fast so this may have been a bit over kill. Installation took a bit longer than expected (4 hrs) due to measuring, cutting, and replacing the old PVC and adding a backflow control valve. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase though I may have preferred choosing the attached floater instead of the free floating one. It's also extremely quiet compared to my old one; quieter than a dishwasher.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Glad I bought this pump!
I live in Massachusetts and I am sure many have seen the flooding we have had this past March. Well, I ordered this pump the day after the first big storm and it was delivered in 3 days! Thank God it was ready for the next storm with 8 inches of rain and it saved our basement from a second flood that could have ruined our furnace and water heater. It worked great! It does have a lot of power so make sure you have all the hoses hooked up and secured properly. This is, so far, a great product. I wish we had it for the first storm when we got a foot of water in the basement.

I have a Flotec sewerage pump also that I am very pleased with also. The only minor problem was the position of the float valve that I was able to correct by rotating the base by removing 3 screws. This was not mentioned in the installation instructions but I'm sure if I needed to call their tech line they would have told me how to do it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joeu Works great and fast
Read a lot of reviews for various sump pumps before I purchased this one. Just installed a week ago so I don't have a long track record on it yet. Seems heavy duty and when it kicks in it empties the sump in under 2 min. I was a bit concerned about the external float switch but so far doesn't seem to be a problem. Can't think of anything I'd change. Pretty simple to install. I recommend assembling as much of the outflow portion as possible before you put it in the sump. Much easier than working underwater with limited visibility not to mention the ice cold part. I like the 5 yr warranty. Most others have 3. The one it replaced had a 7 yr warranty and lasted that long (approx. 10 yrs). Price was reasonable compared to other sources. Delivery was prompt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sylus It does wha its supposed to
I went back to flotec because my previous flotec was ancient and still working. I replaced it because it was starting to sound suspect. This model is heavier and more stable with a very quiet pump action. I would make sure you also get a check-valve since my old check-valve did not fit this model. I wish that these pumps would empty out the water a little lower. There is always at least 4 - 6 inches of water left at the bottom that the pump does not get. This is not an issue of performance so I would not take a star rating off because of this. I've only had this particular model for a few weeks and its been pumping everyday about twice an hour. My older flotec was in the house since I bought the house eight years ago and it was a few years old then. So I know it lasted at least 10 -15 years.
