Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cpat Great Pumping power but need to keep the sensor probe sclean
The pump had been working great for little bit over a year. Then one day i started hearing "Water Level High" Alarm and the pump never shut off until i unplug the power cord. This model uses an electronic sensor (as opposed to moving float sensor which moves up/down). The sensor is screwed to the top of the pump with a single philips screw. I unscrewed the sensor and noticed calcium deposit on the sensing probe. I removed the calcium deposit using a sand paper, attached the probe back and the pump started working normally. I have seen reviews where people complain that the Sensor Switch goes bad after few months and they end up either replacing the entire Sump Pump Or just the Sensor Switch. Even if you replace the Sensor switch you will still run into same situation of calcium deposits. Like i said, just clean the Sensor probe atleast once a year.
My suggestion is to have a battery backup installed no matter which sump pump you use as a primary pump. Nowadays manufacturers are trying to save money so nothing lasts long time as it used to be 10 or 20 years ago.
