Answer: 
The float switch is a small sealed reed-valve (magnetic) unit that attaches to an L-shaped metal bracket about 4 inches long. The manufacturer supplies cable zip ties to attach the float to the vertical drain pipe. The float should be positioned about 10-14 inches above the sump floor, and more importantly, in a position where the backup pump will turn on once the water level is 1 to 2 inches above where Read More
The float switch is a small sealed reed-valve (magnetic) unit that attaches to an L-shaped metal bracket about 4 inches long. The manufacturer supplies cable zip ties to attach the float to the vertical drain pipe. The float should be positioned about 10-14 inches above the sump floor, and more importantly, in a position where the backup pump will turn on once the water level is 1 to 2 inches above where your primary pump would normally turn on.
When the backup pump is actuated by it's float switch, it runs for a timed 20-25 seconds to empty the sump. This is because the float switch travel is only about 1 -2 inches. I have found this setup works very well, it was well thought out by the engineers designing the system. I attached the float switch to the drain pipe using a normal hose clamp, it is sturdier than the zip ties in my opinion. Read Less

Answer: 
There are zip ties included in the system, and you just zip tie the float with the L bracket onto the discharge pipe. (the drain pipe)

Answer: 
Yes, this pump will run if the A/C power (to charge the battery for this pump) is off or on. This pump always runs off of the 12-volt battery. In other words, if your main pump fails (for any reason) but power is still on, this pump will run. If the power is out, this pump will run as well. It is designed to run with A/C power off or on.
Also, this pump can run if your main pump can not keep up with the Read More
Yes, this pump will run if the A/C power (to charge the battery for this pump) is off or on. This pump always runs off of the 12-volt battery. In other words, if your main pump fails (for any reason) but power is still on, this pump will run. If the power is out, this pump will run as well. It is designed to run with A/C power off or on.
Also, this pump can run if your main pump can not keep up with the inflow of water. What you do is set the float for the backup pump to turn on when the water is 1-2 inches above where your main pump would normally turn on. So, it is an assist pump for hi flow situations and also a backup if your main pump fails for any reason, including (but not limited to) power loss.
The only reason this pump would not run is when the 12-volt storage battery is depleted and/or reached its end-of-life. Read Less

Answer: 
I installed the entire pump at the bottom of my sump next to the existing 120v standard pump. You will probably have enough room to do the same; it may require a little push of the existing piping to place one pump next to the other.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Battery Sump Pump With all of the electrical storms this year this battery powered sump pump provides a good backup for my home. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pump works very well and was easy to install The pump was easy to install, the system works as described and pumps very well. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sump Pump Backup Tested OK....Hope I never need to use it.....Keep the power on July 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beware! --Will boil your battery dry! I installed this pump in July 2015. It seemed OK until I tested it's operation in May 2016. Indicator shows that battery is OK, but in fact it had boiled my battery dry and ruined it. If you install this, watch your water level in the battery, and test it monthly. Have never had this problem with deep cycle batteries before. Have always used a battery tender to keep them charged. May 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mr. wayne back up sump will need a back up I bought this pump to replace the back up that had been in place for 3 years and had worked well the few times it was needed. Went all through the set up in a cramped and not all that pleasant hole only to find on testing that the pump leaks around the gasket when activated. Since it is working better than nothing and the inconvenience of redoing the whole job and trying to go through the hassle of returning the pump to a store seems like a huge hassle I guess I will live temporarily with this poorly made and obviously not tested product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by float switch failed /did not last a year/ find this out when you need it doesn't do any good. products a failure can not recommend due to float switch failure..... May 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great the 50% of the time it works. Have an intermittent problem with this unit. Think the problem is in the float switch. When it works its great. when it doesn't not so hot. Truthfully, I think I just got a lemon. Will see what the future holds. April 12, 2016
