Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 126 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product!! I purchased a similar pump 5 years ago with a lifetime warranty. I've had to replace other pumps after two or three years, but bought the Ridgid for the lifetime warranty. It gets used nearly constantly for 6 months during a year and recently the motor failed. I no longer had my receipt but I called Ridgid and they were fantastic!!! The nearest service center was over 80 miles away, so they had me take it to the local Home Depot to verify the motor failed and they shipped out a replacement pump immediately. I need to give a shout out to Home Depot as well for their help, but Ridgid stood behind their product 100%. Never looked for an 'out' to back away from honoring the lifetime warranty. I would absolutely buy other Ridgid products and recommend to anyone. Great product and company. January 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet well built UL listed Ridgid brand name influenced decision to purchase as well as product was UL listed for safety. Installed very easily. Very quiet. Seemed to be well built. Would recommend this pump over the plastic competitor models. November 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by still have the lifetime warranty unit Bought one 5yrs ago when they were still lifetime warranty, it's written right on the box. Unit still works, but I don't store it in the pit in the dry season. Worst thing about these pumps is the rust on the long bolts that hold the motor to the base, they are rusting so bad I doubt they'd even come out to put stainless ones in. Maybe the new pumps are upgraded. Would buy another one if needed. April 8, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Don't buy because of the name Bought it for the ridgid name because I needed a reliable pump. It failed after only 8 months while I was on vacation. Ruined vacation /ruined basement. March 6, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Something that's made to spend it's life SUBMERGED IN WATER....... Should NEVER rust! After about 4 years it died.. Not the motor, not the switch but the metal rods that connect the whole thing rusted through and it came apart. I'll be looking elsewhere for the replacement. Unacceptable cheap engineering on this model. Any machine is only as good as its weakest link. October 10, 2012
