If it makes a humming noise the motor is probably is burnt out. . Had issues with it hanging up and after 6 months of constantly clearing the impeller and adjusting the ball valve to get it to work, Returned it and got another one. Same issues. I returned it and got the LIBERTY PUMP MODEL 404. Have had it about a year and a half with NO issues. Cost a little more but well worth it.

Can I hook this pump up to the PVC with out the sink?

Answer

The intake and outtake lines are different sizes, but I can’t see why a sink is “needed.” However, I worry about some of the details and worry you may be using this pump for a job that another pump may be more appropriate. Also, the check valve that come with this product is not great quality and I would advise using a higher quality check valve/flap that you purchase separately.

Yes, it is perfect for a sink. You can mount the pump in the cabinet right under the sink. I use mine for a bar sink in the basement. It can push water up 15 feet. I have had mine installed for 2 years with no problems.

what is maximum water temperature? what is maximum solids size handling? what is its db noise level?

Asked by Kimo July 4, 2020
2
Answers

Solids, especially solids that are rigid, can jam up the propeller of the pump. I have had to take mine apart twice when a small pieces of plastic jammed the propeller. I now use a screen in the drain and all works well. Not sure of dB level, but it is about the noise of a quiet garbage disposal. I have poured boiling water into the drain without issues.

Yes, it does. It's a helpful and nice product.

The pump leaves like a half inch of water in sink and shuts off how do you fix the problem

Asked by Jay February 25, 2020
6
Answers

They vaguely mention this in the instructions, but the pump must be mounted lower. I made a longer tailpiece with a union, so that the pump rests on a 2x4 yet can easily be removed for service. This takes the weight off of the sink as well as lowering the water level in the sink. You could mount it so that it sits directly on the floor, but I don't recommend that unless you have to. Based on the 1/2" of water you have left, you need to lower the pump at least 2". You will also need to add a piece to the outlet piping to accomodate the lowered position. I also took an old stocking and covered the pump up to the outlet to prevent dust, dirt, bugs, from getting into the motor.

Asked by Bob October 23, 2019

Answers

You need the vent, so I'm not sure why you would use an ell which would disable the vent. I would recommend you use a T-Wye after the sink oriented so the flow into the drain is downward. If you don't have room, you could put it above the sink in the vent, but you run the risk of pumping water out of the sink if the drain clogs (probably unlikely).

There is no pressure adjustment in this pump whatsoever. A few drops of water on its membrane is enough to activated the pump.

Works Great
I read a lot of reviews regarding the back flow valve leaking and the need to have a 6 foot vertical rise above the pump. I tossed the flap valve that came with the unit and got a spring loaded valve. No issues and no leak back with a 4 foot rise.the unit is a bit loud but it’s in a basement sink so I’ll live. Also I had to improvise on the plumbing a little. Putting it into a smaller cabinet.

Quiet, and efficient! Easy to install. The extra stuff that you have to buy isn't that pricey. Can't seem to regulate the flow that well but otherwise good product.

The AQUAPRO 1/3 HP UTILITY SINK PUMP is super for pushing waste water to the main household drain line. After installing it in a sub-basement (basement below lower level) bathroom sink, it pushed water very well. The unit is heavy and a little tall for vanity use, I will extend the sink drainline to free up under cabinet space. I will also get another one that will serve the lower wet bar lounge and kitchen area.

Installation was relatively easy IF you have some plumbing experience. Based on other reviews I purchased a higher quality check cable than is included with the pump (this valve essentially serves as the switch to tell the pump when to start/stop and is worth getting a good one). A few other exceptions to the install were going with all pvc vs the galvanized pipe recommended in the instructions (it would just rust eventually, no idea why they would call for it). I also added a rubber union so it would be easier to pull the pump for maintenance. Finally, I added a block of wood under the pump to support the pump instead of it simply hanging on the drain connection (it is very heavy). Once installed it worked very well and can pump out an entire sink full in seconds - a very nice solution for those of us with a washer/sink below grade.

This pump is well-suited to draining a shop or laundry sink where the outfall pipe is above grade. It comes with key components for the discharge line (check valve and ball valve) and an owner's manual. See photo 1. The 1/3 HP rating suffices for small sink flows and it is wired for a 120 VAC convenience outlet. The pressure switch energizes the pump via a piggyback plug. Since my outlet is near a water fixture it is both switched and protected by a GFCI device. The pump has a 1-1/2 inch inlet which plumbs readily as this is a common small sink drain size. There is a strainer disc provided; but I found it more practical to use one or several selective strainers over the sink outlet. This is essential to keeping the pressure switch and check valve functioning! The impeller is a chemical resistant composite (See photo 2.) and the pump and motor are separable. See photo 3. The motor casing is vented on both its upper periphery and along its bottom. See photo 4. So I believe the motor is best cooled when neither of these is obstructed. The outlet side components are all 1-1/4 inch diameter. See photo 5. Advice is given for using the ball valve as a flow adjusting device - but I did not find that necessary. I don't use this for unattended purposes, such as laundry. so, under low flow conditions I might flip the wall switch and let rinse water accumulate in the sink... My outfall pipe was just below the ceiling, so I had no problem placing the check valve under sufficient head. I then made an inverted turn into a street ell on the outfall. All this is working well for me. The all PVC hook up with a union (and placing another local clean out in the outfall) was quick and easy. The owner's manual includes a Troubleshooting Guide.

Plumbing is simple, water comes in the top and its pumped out the side pipe to the sewer. There are actually two (2) valves included, both of which go on the discharge line. One of which is a mechanical check valve and the other is a ball valve to control the discharge rate so that the pump operates as it needs to to maintain adequate water flow and control it to the point that is not flowing too heavily. Once installed it was relatively quiet compared to the free standing sump type it replaced. Yet Its still a pump, its not silent by any means. You will need to buy a few pieces of PVC pipe and a few pvc male adapters, none of which are very expensive.
by Papawjeff
This pump works great, no more bucket under the sink. Installation was easy, I use the plumbers tape for leak prevention on hand tight screw in piping. The utility sink we installed needed a drain, so we pump it into the washing machine drain (we swap out the hoses when using the sink). There is no need for a plumber or drywall work, just simple pipe connections, plug it in and away it goes.

This is a review of the Aquapro Utility Sink Pump.  I got this to use on an outside sink I use in my garden.  In the past I let the water from the sink drained on the ground but it made a mess where I stand, I put some flat stones there so my feed didn’t get wet.  This pump is an excellent solution to that problem. Now with this pump and a length of flexible pipe I can direct the water where I want. I put the drain line under my ornamental plants and hedges so they can use the water.  I moved the pump inside to my workshop for the winter. I set up a portable sink there so I can wash my hands in the shop and pump the water to a drain in the laundry room. The pump seems to be well made and durable. It has a 1.5” inlet that connects to the bottom of my sink.  The outlet is 1.25”. The pump comes with a very good set of instructions that detail set-up and maintenance. I highly recommend this pump.
