Rated 2.1 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible Just as others have said, the problem with this pump is the "automatic" feature. It is supposed to pump as long as water is present. Mine will only pump for about 10 seconds every minute even if it is in 2 feet of clean water. When the pump is on it does pump well, but the it shuts off and waits. However if you take off the top of the assembly you can easily remove the small circuit board that controls the automatic function. Just unplug the three wires, throw the circuit board in the can, and plug the wires back in. Viola! Now the pump will run as long as it is plugged in. Better than it was before. September 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by build a filter and it pumps down to 1/4" this pump gave me fits until i figured out how to get it installed properly. as other reviewers have stated, this pump can not handle ANY sort of debris or sediment or it will clog and cleaning it out is very painful. my solution to the clogging problem was to take an old bucket, drill it full of holes, place the pump inside, then wrap the bucket+pump with a high quality landscape fabric. i've been running the pump for well over a month now, we've had over 10" of rain, the pump has not clogged and has almost always kept my sump basin pumped down to 1/4" of water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DO NOT BUY! NEGATIVE REVIEWS ARE CORRECT! Bought to drain a ditch around my house before the water got into the basement. I was concerned about the negative reviews but thought I'd get one and follow the advise (put unit on board, etc.). STILL DIDN'T WORK! Would turn on for the '5 seconds' to sense water and then turned off. Water was nearly up to the top of the unit. I left it alone for a few minutes, figuring it needed to 'settle in'. NOPE, STILL DIDN'T WORK!. If you're looking for a pump similar to this, go to L*wes and get #0435062, it's more powerful and IT WORKS!. Instead of wasting your power every 2.5 minutes to 'sense' if water's present, it uses a simple level sensor. Much better! September 12, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by doesn't perform Circuit board apparently does not perform to specs - pump will start as per instructions - cycle the prescribed minutes, run 5 seconds to detect water, then it is supposed to continue to run until water drops to 1/4" then begin recycling - it will not do it - tried all options, shorter, larger hose, larger electrical extension cord, 12 gauge - and still it will not continuously run when I really need it. (Second pump, same problem) Not a good device, strong no to buying it! Sorry, Flotec June 30, 2010
Rated 1 out of 5 by Home Depot Stop selling this Pump Bought this pump 2 years ago, never used it. But today I finally needed it and it failed. My house is cut in to the mountain and during Monsoon storms water gets caught behind my house coming of the peak behind me. If I don't get the water it will go through the bottom of my house. Had a bad storm today and hooked up pump. Darn thing worked for a sec and stopped, 2 mins later worked for a couple seconds and then stopped. There auto start feature does not work on this pump. I really needed this pump as I almost had a total loss. But it did not work. I'm writing Home Depot to ask them to stop carrying Flotec pumps. You cannot sell a product that does not work.
