Answer: 
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 Read More
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. Read Less

Answer: 
Because overflowing condensate can stain a wall or cause other water damage, many new AC units have a control circuit that allows the condensate pump to shut them off if the water in the condensate gets to high. So it the condensate pump is equipped with the safety switch and the AC unit is equipped to utilize it, they can be connected. Then if the condensate stops working and the water level gets high Read More
Because overflowing condensate can stain a wall or cause other water damage, many new AC units have a control circuit that allows the condensate pump to shut them off if the water in the condensate gets to high. So it the condensate pump is equipped with the safety switch and the AC unit is equipped to utilize it, they can be connected. Then if the condensate stops working and the water level gets high enough to engage this switch it will shut off the AC and the production of condensate will stop. The switch is simply a pair of dry contacts, so it can only be utilized if the AC unit is designed with safety switch capability. This is a feature on many new premium condensate pumps. Don be concerned if your not sure if your AC is equipped for this option, or you don't want to utilize it., as you do not have to. I install a lot of condensate pumps and most come with this switch but I personally never hook it up. Its there if needed but the unit will work fine if not used. Read Less

Answer: 
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 Read More
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 Read Less

Answer: 
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.
