Answer: 
I don't see why not. You can run multiple drain lines into this unit. However your question peeks my interest in another way. First, why is your humidifier running in the summer? Usually low humidity is a winter problem and those units should be running when the heat is on. Second, if the air is dry it should be absorbing all the water. A lot of discharge could indicate that either the air is not dry to Read More

Usually low humidity is a winter problem and those units should be running when the heat is on. Second, if the air is dry it should be absorbing all the water. A lot of discharge could indicate that either the air is not dry to start or the media for heat water absorption has fowled.

Will the safety switch power an alarm, or is a separate DC power source needed for an alarm?

I plan on using this pump to remove condensate from a dehumidifier. If the pump fails, I want an alarm. Do I needed to buy a separate DC power supply, or does the safety switch provide the power for the low voltage alarm?

Answer: 
The safety switch is a dry contact. Meaning there is no power it is just as switch. So you would need to power it. Some AC units come with a transformer and internal switch that allows this switch to shut them down in the event of pump failure.

Pump will be used to move drainage water from a small commercial ice maker to a drain. No chance of using gravity.

Answer: 
Yes it is a type a float switch. As water collects in the tank the float rises. At a specific level the float actuates the switch which sends power to the pump motor; turning it on.. As the water is discharged the float travels downward causing the switch to be disengaged and the pump to stop. The reason they mentions "snap action" is kind or interesting yet probably more of a source of confusion than it Read More
Yes it is a type a float switch. As water collects in the tank the float rises. At a specific level the float actuates the switch which sends power to the pump motor; turning it on.. As the water is discharged the float travels downward causing the switch to be disengaged and the pump to stop. The reason they mentions "snap action" is kind or interesting yet probably more of a source of confusion than it is worth. With early float switches you could often find yourself in an odd situation where the pump was in a way 1/2 on. The water level was just at the right height where the switch was only partially engaged. This could result in inconsistent flow of current to the pump motor. This could cause the pump and switch to burn out prematurely. Put differently switches are binary devises. They need to be on or off, not somewhere in the middle. With this switch, when the water reaches a certain level the switch snaps into the on position. Thus it can;t find it self in that half way point. This gives the unit greater life. It will also snap into the off position as the water level decreases. Read Less

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product The pump came quickly. It was a snap to install and it works perfectly !! June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Pump, Easy to install My first pump died due to lack of previous home owner maintenance. I found this Home Depot replacement online to be higher priced than other dealers. However, shipping was free and it was in stock vs other dealers. Plus, if there was a problem, it stated I could go to my local store and return the item!!! I went with Home Depot. Received the item in about 5 days. It was easy to self install as I had labeled the wires while disconnecting my old one. Thank you Home Depot! August 10, 2014
