1/4 HP Utility Sink Pump is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and easy to install Read the entire manual before installing and follow the instructions carefully. I installed it in about 15 minutes. Works great! Adust the ball valve to keep pump from turning off and on: with the water running, simply adjust the ball valve to almost closed and then open the valve slowly until pump starts turning on and off then close it a little until pump runs continously with water running. If pump comes on again at the end of the drain just turn the valve closed a little more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pump for where you have no vent I bought this pump because it does not require a p-trap or a vent. It works great except the drain is a little quirky. You adjust the flow with a ball valve and it requires a little fiddling. If you get too much flow the pump will "hunt" because it pumps too fast. Installation was a little more complicated with my sink because I had to cut a hole in the bottom shelf to allow the pump motor to clear it. Still the installation was fairly easy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product leaves a lot to be desired The pump doesn't pump unless you correctly adjust the in line shut-off valve. I'm using it on a cellar sink. I had to just about completely close the valve, it is now about 1/8 open, for it to pump without cycling on & off to pump. The closed valve reduces the speed of the amount pumped drastically. If I had it to do again I'd buy a model with a float on & off systm. This one at the end leaves water standing in the line connected to the sink and about 1/8" of water in the sink bottom. Not a good product. Actually returned and got a 2nd pump, because I thought something was wrong with the 1st one, but the 2nd one was the same. Not happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I bought a second one. I bought this pump to mount under the kitchen sink due to a hopelessly hard drain to sewer dilema. No more clogged drain lines or slow draining sink. It is quiet, is switched inteligently and the flow controllable. Out of fear of product design changes with this product (which would require re-plumbing) I bought a second one "for the shelf".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does Just as it was advertised I needed a pump for my utility sink in the basement which lacks any sort of floor drain. This has done the trick. Recommend you follow the installation instructions precisely. First time we hooked it up we did not include the length of 1 1/2 PVC between the sink and pump, and hooked the pump directly to the sink. That did not provide enough pressure to activate the diaphram switch. It needs about a foot of PVC to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pump for below ground level instalations The installation is straightforward if you know something about connecting pipes and understand the consequences. The pump itself is a bit noisy, but it is a tradeoff worth considering if you have no way of hooking up vented box application (I doubt it would be less noisy but certainly would not turn on the pump too often). In my particular installation I was hooking up a wet bar and needed to run discharge from the sink to the wall, then along the wall and up. From there I had another 15ft to the main pipe. All together it was about 25ft including 7ft up. I was afraid the pump would not handle more complex installation but was pleasantly surprised at how efficiently it worked. It is important to take time to fine tune the flow by very slowly and patiently adjusting the provided ball valve. If done properly it will minimize the frequency of turning on/off the pump while running the water in the sink. I am absolutely happy with this choice and highly recommend it as an alternative worth considering in your vent-less installation. I cannot say anything about the quality or reliability just yet. The time will tell, however I trusted the name because I've used other Flotec products and they never failed me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit for purpose Great for wet bar where a gravity based drainage system has not been previously piped. Installs easily but you need to make sure you have enough clearance under the sink for the unit to hang under the drain. My wife selected an extra deep sink and a cabinet with a lower drawer so it was a tight fit. I had to place the pump in position and then install the drain in the sink to get it to fit. Install a screen in the drain so no debris gets down into the pump or it will fail. I have recommended this unit to several people and all have been very satisfied

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall I am happy The only issue is that the pump was not completely draining the water in our utility sink. It wasn't until I called the manufacturer that he told me of a sensitivity adjustment, which is a triangular hole in a sort of set screw in close to the bottom. This is nowhere in the installation instructions which doesn't make any sense to me. It still leaves small bit of water, but nothing I can't live with.
