My crawl space had one of these when I bought the house 5 years ago and it's still going strong. It has sat for months on end in dry spells while running once an hour during very wet periods. Its discharge lift is only a few feet since its in a crawl space but horizontally it runs 40 feet no problem.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mastertechl12 Pumps out the sump
Purchased to replace old 2/3HP pump.
Got the 1/4HP pump since I didn't need that much power. I also didn't want a bunch of adapters to fit the existing pipes so this worked out well.
I was hoping this pump would be a bit quieter since it's directly under the bedroom but it's still pretty loud. We'll see how it does this winter. I may have to add some more insulation around the sump to absorb the noise.
Now just waiting for the rain!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tundratic Poor quality. Depends on your application.
Depends on your application. If you need a pump for emergency purposes only and your sump basin is usually dry, this pump will work for you. If your foundation weeping tile fills the sump basin regularly and you are constantly pumping water out (around once every other day), DO NOT get this pump - it will not stand up to regular use. Spend the extra money and get a bigger, better pump. This pump might be useful as a backup or staggered above a main sump pump in case the main pump fails. But this pump is not a reliable main pump to keep your house from flooding. I had this one installed and it lasted a little over one year (surprise, the warranty is only one year of course). My basement started to flood and I found the breaker in my electrical panel for the dedicated sump pump circuit had blown. I reset the breaker and it blew right away again. I pulled this sump pump out of the basin and found the screws that hold the housing together had all rusted out and the cheap plastic motor casing leaked all the oil out. This caused the motor windings to short which in turn caused the breaker to pop. Then of course without a functioning pump, my basement flooded. I now have a larger cast iron Rigid pump and everything is going well. Live and learn, spend the money and do it right the first time.

I can't complain. I just replaced this pump with the same model after 15 years of reliable use. The screws on the bottom that hold the impeller housing to the base rusted out so the seal to the impeller was broken and it could no longer pump. Those screws were in water constantly because the intake is a couple inches above them. I may drill them out and put in bolts with nuts but I figured it was time to replace the pump anyway.

Will confess that I am a Home Depot employee. Ok. Product was easy to install and works flawlessly. I am a novice with plumbing but I had this working in less than an hour and it has worked without incident for the whole three months that I've had it. Would recommend.

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.

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.
