Will this sump pump work in my application?

I have a cement encased hot tub that is about a foot above ground but 3 feet in ground in a cement housing. There's also a waterfall feature with a pond adjacent to it. My problem is that the cement housing is filling up with water (say 2-6 inches) either from rain storms or ground seepage, so I'd like to install a small submersible sump pump to constantly monitor the situation and start pumping as soon as a little water accumulates. The pump doesn't have to be very powerful as it just has to raise the water just 3 feet and direct it towards the pond. Will this particular submersible sum pump work for me?

Customer Reviews

1/4 HP Thermoplastic Submersible Sump Pump with Tethered Switch is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not last The impeller failed and was not pumping water after 2 months. Lucky I have a high water alarm or my basement would have flooded.. I returned it for a second one and the case has rusted through in under a year. The water that it is draining is not acetic. You have to send your pump in for warranty to the manufacturer after the first year. Last pump lasted ten years. I would recommend this pump to anyone that wants to turn there basement into a swimming pool

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Corroded hardware If you buy this pump, you should immediately replace the bolt and cable clamp that hold the float switch to the housing with a nylon clamp and stainless steel bolt. I've had this pump 7 years and the head of the bolt rusted off after 5 years causing the switch to disconnect and not turn the pump on... Now the oil that cools the motor is leaking out into the sump... time for a new pump.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Here we go....again!! I've bought this pump twice in the last four years. Won't be making that mistake again. Home Depot needs to find a new and BETTER manufacturer of this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Pump Very easy to install. Works right out of the box, all you need is an electrical outlet nearby and PVC piping to get the water outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, So Good Thanks to Hurricane Sandy and the fact that my old sump pump quit on me, I needed a replacement. Of course, every store in the area was out and I ended up ordering on line. I had a swimming pool in my basement for a week, but when this pump did show up it did a geat job. I now own two of these pumps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sump Pump- Great Service I've tried different sump pumps in my basement. This one is 100% reliable in the year I've owned it. It's so quiet, I don't ever hear it come on. Does an excellent job, since we continue to have problems with flooding. I didn't expect that performance for the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is quiet, fast and reliable. Can't ask for more than that. Also like the dual thread outlet that lets you put the pipe/hose either inside or outside of the outlet fitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Reliable I just replaced this sump pump in my house this season. I upgraded to a cast iron pump with a bit more HP, but not b/c this one wore out. In fact, as far as I can tell this pump has been running reliably in my basement for 15 years....give or take a year. It turned on after the winter thaw about 2-4 times a day with out a problem. Some years more, so years less. I never had to worry about its functioning. It moved the water out of the sump easily and never clogged. In fact, after I took it out of the sump to replace, I noticed just how beat up it was, but it kept going without an issue.
