Customer Questions & Answers

Can this pump sit in a sump that will rarely if ever contain water?

Need a pump for a crawl space sump system. The sump system is only connected to two floor drains installed in case of flooding due to a broken water line or drain. Ideally the pump will never be needed. Is there a concern that pump seals will dry out if not used periodically or partially submerged in water?

Im looking for a pump that pumps fluid and solid waste ..does this pump do both?

Asked by: eric
That depends on how you define solid waste. I have done this for a long time so let me offer you my practical yet unofficial definition of terms and hopefully that will help you make good choices. On the lowest end of spectrum you have sump pumps, they move water or gray water. That is water with no solids of any kind. Moving up you have effluent pumps. They move water and "semi solids" this would include toilet paper and feces, Then you move on to sewage pumps. These are dedicated to waste containing not only semi solids but other biodegradable things that may be put down a drain or toilet. Basically large more solid versions of semi solids. Next you have grinder pumps. These, as the name suggests, grind up solids, such as plastics and things like towels that may inadvertently go down the drain or toilet. Lastly you have trash pumps. These are what municipal public works departments use because they sometimes have to pump out areas without knowing the contents. They can pump up rocks and very thick mixtures like liquid concrete. And if they clog no permanent damage will be done. So I would speculate that what you want to know is should you use an effluent pump or a dedicated sewage pump. To offer an opinion I would really need to know more about the specific application. If you would like to discuss this with me you can give me a call. Chris 978 651 3301

Will the impeller handle some salt water. I discharge my water softener into my sump pit?

Will the impeller handle some salt water. I discharge my water softener into my sump pit?
Asked by: Elm
The week link will not be the impeller but the volute; the chamber where the impeller spins, because it is constructed of epoxy coated cast iron. Eventually the epoxy will become compromised especially if stones or any abrasive is picked up with the water. Once exposed the iron will rust. This would be exacerbated by salt. The impeller being made of a polymer will be more resilient to salt than the iron. However with that said I would still feel comfortable using this pump.. I would not spend the money on a bronze pump or one that is resilient to salt as they would be many times the price. I would just accept the fact that my pump life may be shorter due to the brine, and maybe I would employ the practice of cycling the sump pump with clean water when I recharged the media bed.

Can the float be modified allowing more travel, so the pump will run for longer, and less often?

I'd like to dismount the existing float, and perhaps attach it to a tether (and of course the actuator switch) allowing more travel, and fewer on/off cycles. Our situation is an underground rain collection tank, 3' diameter, and 12' deep, sump pump goes in the bottom and evacuates rain/ground water before it has a chance to seep into our basement. When the pump turns on, I don't want to move 3 or 4 gallons, I'd like to move 50 - 150 gallons per cycle.
Asked by: H2OMark
This pump has an integral float switch as you have mentioned which gives it a specific range. I would think that you would want a pump with out an internal switch. Meaning when you give it power it is on. Then you could plug it in to a "piggy back" float switch. By adjusting the length of that float switch you can adjust the on off cycle so that the chamber will fill with more water before coming on. Thus having longer run times and less frequency of runs.

It's made of heavy cast iron and seems to be of very high quality. The float kicks in early and pumps all the way down to a few inches. I haven't had it long enough to comment on the reliability but I suspect it will last.
