It looks like from the literature it has a float switch, however when looking at it, it does not appear like any other float switch I have seen. So does it have a float switch?
Asked by: JP
"THE" problem with the switch, is that clean water has to enter the housing. If there is any sludge, or debris that will rise into the small tube cavity (e.g. hairs, fibers, botanical material, cave cricket skeletons!, the switch will either not work, or when working will stay on!

The Little Giant 6-CIA-ML has a mid level switch that kicks on at 4" to 7" and off at 1" to 3". This is what the Little Giant web page has listed for this model.

What is the difference between the 560158 (6-CIA) and 560160 (6-CIA-ML) models? Can I use the 560158 to replace a utility sink pump that had the 560160 previously?
Asked by: CF
The numbers you have listed do not currently exist. So I will assume you made a transposition error. I think you are asking me the difference between a 506158 and a 506160. The difference is the water depth at which the switch will turn the pump on and off. For the 506158 The pump turns on between 7"-10" and off at 1"-4" Where as the 506160 turns on at lower water levels. On at 4"-7" and off at 1"-3". This is because this pump is often used in receptors that are not very tall so that they can fit under a sink. It that is the case you need that specific pump or equal as the chamber may fill all the way but still not be deep enough to actuate the switch even though it is full.

Asked by: Argenis
I am sorry but there are many application for this pump and all would require different things. If however I was installing it in a sump in my basement in a permanent way, I would want to make sure I had a check valve on the discharge so that water in the discharge line did not flow back into the sump and cause the pump to go on and off in an endless cycle. It is also a critical best practice in such installations to drill a small hole in the discharge pipe below the check valve to allow air to escape. If not you run the risk of the sump filling slowly and trapping and air bubble in the volute. It this occurs the impeller will spin in the air pocket but no water will be pumped. The pump will pump liquids but not compress and expel an air bubble. Also on a permanent installation make sure you compare the pump discharge size with the pipe you are using. Often a reducing bushing is needed as your first fitting.

The Little Giant 6-CIA-ML sump pump has a mid level switch that kicks on between 4 and 7 inches of water. It is a small size pump that makes it ideal for my use. I have it as a back up pump in case my main pump fails. It is on a separate circuit and is with a larger pump for the main and a high water alarm between the two pumps.

Pumps like a champ, we use it to pump hot water @ 140 Degrees Fahrenheit and this was the only pump I could find in this price range that was rated up to 150 Degrees Fahrenheit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dead in 4 months This pump replaced the one installed by the contractor in 1997. I'm glad I kept the old. I found the switch housing full of water. It must not have been sealed very well. I am hoping a switch kit will save it. Based on the original, great pump! If you buy one, make sure the electrics are sealed before you submerge it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sump Replacement I wanted an identical replacement for a sump that was installed by a contractor 10+ years ago. I felt fortunate Home Depot had the identical OEM pump.

NIce design and seems to be an excellent replacement for older pump that had a float. This is being used as an ejector above ground pump. It does seem to requre more pumps to clear line as inlet is closeer to bottom of housing than earlier version.
