Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lasted 9 years This pump lasted 9 years without a problem running on and off quite often in rainy weather. The switch his not reliable anymore . The pump motor is still working fine. All cast iron construction makes the replacement look cheap. I am trying to buy a switch and use this for back up. January 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Replaced an identical product - with ease. Very dependable pump, previous pump was years old, installed before we purchased house. Never failed until very end. New installation was a snap. Installed it myself at substantial savings. Found the pump to be a very favorable value for the cost. May 30, 2013
