Customer Questions & Answers

What is the function of the "Safety Switch?

Is this a second float switch? Is it wired internally? What does it do and under what conditions?
Asked by: Pops
Some furnaces have a safety interlock that will shut down the system if the pump stops working. This could also be used to operate an alarm to alert you the pump is not working or there is a blockage.

Asked by: ACW
This should work just fine. The pumps are in the same series but his one has the addition of a safety switch which you may or may not chose to use.

Asked by: tom
The 550515 is an old model number that has been replaced with the 550521. The Home Depot sells this item it is on there site as SKU #204481246 If you put that number in the search block it will come up. Unfortunately we are out at this time. For some reason we had a big spike last wee. However we should be back in stock shortly.

Can this be used to replace the 554401 unit?

I just want to make sure I could swap this one for the 554401 without having to make any adjustments in piping length etc.
Asked by: Jferger
The item number 554401 is a model VCMA-15UL where as the 554405 is a model VCMA-15ULS. So the difference is the "S" which stands for Safety Switch. This is an option that comes with the pump but does not have to be used. It is an option included in many new condensate pumps but is often not used and in my years in the trade I have actually never taken advantage of it. The safety switch is a switch that can be hooked to AC systems factory designed to utilize it. If the condensate pump wears out and the water level gets to high the switch will shut off the AC unit so that condensate does not overflow and cause water damage. I don't use it because by shutting down the air conditioning it will often create a troublesome service call because the condensate pump broke when that could have been handled by the owner. However if I was on a job where the condensate pump was installed in a location where overflow would not be noticed or cause expensive damage I would utilize it assuming the AC system was equipped to work with it. Again keep in mind if you don;t have or want to utilize this option there is nothing you need to do. So Yes you could use this to replace yours.
