Customer Reviews

1/3 HP Thermoplastic Submersible Sump Pump with Tethered Switch is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Designed to fail in a few years The case screws that maintain the seal are made of steel (black). They will get wet and stay wet for obvious reasons. Their heads rust off and the motor case leaks. Bad news is they are no longer warranted at that point. Great if your in the business of selling more sump pumps. The last one lasted three years and none of the screw heads were left at that point. We did purchase another one and will just replace the screws with stainless steel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk! I have had TWO of them Flotech! BOTH FAILED right after warranty time ran out! 2 years! Flooded basement both times! Second time I put in a back up pump just in case! FLOTEC DIED and shorted out the circuit so tripped breaker so other pump could NOT WORK. Away on trip came home to 8 inches of water! Now have second circuit BUT NO FLOTEC JUNK! I Would give it ZERO Stars if let me! BUY ANOTHER BRAND!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flotec FPOS2400A Sump Pump This my second Flotec pump. First one is still working after 6 years. I decided to replace it because it is pretty old now and I don't want to press my luck. I'll keep the old one just in case something goes wrong. Very pleased with performance of it. No issues whatsoever.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did It's Job. Replaced the Flotec with a cast iron Coleman 1/2 horse just in time. The Flotec worked great for seven years but I recently noticed an oil slick in the sump well water. I pulled the pump and noticed the cheap screws had rusted away and head was coming loose. Good pump, bad hardware.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Screws rusted, unit failed after 3.2 years. As typical, needed a sump pump ASAP. Bought this Flotec unit (FP0S2400A, 1/3hp) in Nov 2011 from HD. In Feb 2015 I noted the presence of a large amount of clear, odorous oil floating on the water in the sump pit (on the order of more than a cup of oil). Pump still operated, but was leaking oil. When I pulled it I found that the screws that held the pump top on were NOT stainless, but simply regular steel, and three of the four heads had rusted away completely, and the top plate was coming loose, which allowed the oil to escape (and water to enter, of course). I think it's pretty poor of a manufacturer of SUMP PUMPS to use non stainless hardware. Needless to say, Flotec is off my acceptable list. I replaced the unit with a high quality Liberty unit (via amazon, as HD doesn't sell them) for just a little more ($135) -- cast iron, all stainless hardware, magnetic float switch. I hope for more than 3.2 years out of a sump pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flotec Submersible Sump Pump Replaced 1/2 HP Flotec Sump Pump (25 years old) with this unit after speaking with Flotec's Technical Service Department - He was right - my pump has to pump 8 feet vertically and 20 feet laterally to expel from the pump pit and 1/3 HP is more than sufficient - and the pump is actually designed to pump more frequently than the 1/2 HP version (on purpose) - Hey, I'll never buy a different brand sump pump - my fittings and backflow valve fit perfectly - this was a 30 minute changeover, and only took that long since I dropped one of the band clamps into the sump when I removed the old pump (didn't notice it) - Highly recommend that! Sprayed water everywhere without it. I'm just an average homeowner, not a plumber - but figured this out easily - at the inexpensive price, I won't even try to clean this pump if it gets clogged in 25 years, I'll just replace it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Definitely replace the case screws with stainless This pump lasted 6 years in a dirty water sump basin. Just as another reviewer noted, the screws on the case were not stainless and completely rusted into oblivion, breaking the seal. If you get this, I highly suggest replacing those screws with stainless ones before installation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Short life due to deteriorating screws My experience is the same as the others. Pump failed after 3 years due to the screws that hold it together deteriorating to the point it came apart.
