Rated 5 out of 5Â by Thomas 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 4 out of 5Â by Kentster 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 5Â by rvb01 Would not purchase this product again.
The pump makes a lot of noise. I had to re-install it in a different room to reduce the noise when it runs.
The check valve that is supplied with the pump is very flimsy/cheap. It broke before I was able to install it ( I think I dropped it on the floor).
The ball valve provided was difficult to adjust, so I purchased and installed a different ball valve which made adjusting the flow rate a lot easier.
However, it does meet the need for which I purchased it for.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Norman Lack of performance
The diaphragm switch senses the water only when approx. 2 in. of water in the sink.
The pump is only good up to 6 to 7ft, not 11.5 ft as indicated in the trouble shooting chart.
Max. discharge head is not mentionned in the specification when you buy this pump so watch that.
So, I have spent few days trying to get that pump running adequatly but without any success.
Also, specification from Flotec indicates a 1/3HP pump. Home Depot is a 1/4HP for the same model!
Is it the cause the pump not performing?
I gave up! I'll be looking for a more performing device.
