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.

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.

Can i replace my ferguson pump with little giant pump?

I have a trane ac unit and after 4 years the ferguson pump that is on it is leaking water i wondered if i can replace the ferguson pump model number VCMA-15UL with this little giant pump VCMA-15ULS ? Or would i need a different pump unit? Thanks
Asked by: Lo
I have never heard of a pump manufacturer called "Ferguson" So I assume you are referring to Ferguson Enterprises the large national wholesale plumbing distributor. I know that they private label product but not under the name Ferguson. So I would speculate that the pump came from them but is actually Little Giant brand pump. As to the two model numbers you gave me, they are the same pump. The difference is one is equipped with the "S" option. The "S" indicates that the pump comes with an optional safety switch. It adds a few dollars to the cost of the pump. It can be used or not used depending on the customers preference. Many new AC units are designed to take advantage of this switch. If the pump fails to turn on this switch attached to an AC unit cause the AC unit to shut down so that the pump chamber does not over flow and stain the wall. It is a nice option if your AC unit has this feature, but not all do. Today most supply houses are stocking units with the safety switch rather than stocking both. If you don;t want to use it there is nothing you need to do. If I can be of more help or if I completely misunderstood the question please feel free to give me a call. Chris 978 651 3301

I have to replace a little giant condensation pump 115v-60hz model vcma 15ul 10A 1phase i would like to replace it with the same one do you have one

Asked by: oscar
Little Giant makes a model VCMA15UL Which draws 1.0 amps and is single phase 115V- 60HTZ so I am assuming that is what you are referring to and have a couple extra digits to. That product is Little Giants item number 554401 and is on Home Depots web site as SKU 204264949 If you put that model number in the search block on the Home Depot site it will come up.
