I decided to go with this pump due to it being a bit larger than what I really needed and everyone told me to go a bit bigger, so there are no problems down the road. I also liked the fact that it was about $75 cheaper than the comparable unit at the Home Depot store.
The unit arrived in 3 days, the directions and install was very straight forward + easy and I was done in less than 3 hours!!!
It's only been two weeks, but the unit seems to work great, makes almost no noise and does exactly what it is suppose to do pumping the sewage up 10 feet to the main drain line!
I would definitely suggest that anyone looking for a sewage-pump purchase this one!!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MoHawk Bad experience with pump
I bought this pump online due to free shipping and the lifetime warranty. The pump was installed in a 24" pvc basin with a 2" check valve and pumped at 4 feet of head. It pumps grey water from our clothes washer and laundry basin to a storage tank. The pump was in-service 3 weeks and failed exactly 3 weeks from date of installation. The impeller was free however the motor only hummed when starting (winding problem). It only pumped about 5 minutes each day. I returned the pump to our local HD with no problems and purchased the 3/4 HP model which only has a 5 year warranty. I've installed many Flotec pumps and this is the 1st problem I experienced with them.

Great motor, had s zoeller and it died after I bought the house. So I was very in happy with that situation but this motor made it easy. I had some problems with its height with the old pump, this one was a lot more heavy duty but shorter. Besides that love that it has a detachable float because my system already had one, which reviews on all these pumps complain about the float so disregard any negative comments on the floats. I guess that is really hard technology to master because of how slow the float actually moves up and down, and creates snags. The lifetime warranty can't be beat even by best in biz and ups shipping is of course great, go logistics.

I've had this same model pump in my septic system lift station for approximately 10 years now and it's been one of the best pumps I've ever owned. The only thing that went bad on it was the float switch, which is the first thing to go bad on most any pump. It was easily replaced and still runs like a new pump. Even though these pumps come with a lifetime warranty, you never know if or when a company is going to go under or be bought out by another company that no longer honors the warranty. That's why I recently purchased this same pump as a trusted backup and easy swap out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Broke TWICE and flooded basement!
Bought one of these after the original pump that was put in when we built the house wore out after 10 years. A year later this burned out and our finished basement flooded. Home Depot replaced it with the same model. This time I wisely bought a battery back up so if the pump failed again the basement would not flood (had to replace the basement carpet after the flood). It's been a year and now a SECOND pump of this brand broke on me yesterday!! Thankfully I had the battery back up since it's been raining here. I went to a competitor for a replacement and will be retuning this to HD or the manufacturer, whichever option HD suggests. Always have a battery back up with any sump pump as I found out the hard way the first time this pump failed. Avoid this pump!

Replaced an identical product that was 10 years old. Great product. Only replaced the pump because the ejector valve failed and I had everything apart, I though might as well replace the 10 year old pump at the same time. Pump was still working fine. Will use the old one as a spare if a friends pump fails.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gwar Excellent product
Works very well, and heavy duty Iron construction. I could have used a smaller pump, but I needed the extra lift power for our type of application. It was easy to install and worked immediately. Perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Groundhog Flotec 9000 gph/hr pump
I bought this pump because i needed to move alot of water from under my house. It has a lifetime warrenty,but after one year ,it failed. I returned it to my Home Depot store. They were fantastic in helping me, they called the manufacturer , there was no problem in exchanging it for a new one. I think this pump is everything it is promised to be and i am impressed with the service i recieved from the Home Depot store and the manufacturer
