Can this be placed on a basement floor with the float on the floor as well? How would it be secured? We don't have a pit but get flooded during abnormally heavy rains.
Asked by: Shannen
I don't believe so. Ours is in a sump pump basin purchased separately that is in the ground in the basement.

Can this be used to drain a flooding side yard?

Asked by: Phaultyplan
It's a sump pump so it will pump water no problem but I'm not sure how it will take all the contaminats in the water since this is outside use you are trying to apply this for. Also, i don't know how well it will work with the switch/float. It may be a little tricky to have it work when you need to.

What is the minimum size discharge hose that can be used? Currently I am using a 5/8 inch hose on a 1/3 hp pump, it’s time for replacement.
Asked by: Mikem
I can’t see how a 5/8 hose could work for this. It’s set up for a threaded 1 1/2 inch pvc pipe discharge. Even if you rigged up an adapter, I don’t think the hose could handle the volume of water.

I purchased a Basement Watchdog model BW1050 as a primary pump for my basement. Two years later it stopped working and I noticed the green epoxy coating completely peeled off and was floating in my sump pit. I returned it back to Glentronics, the manufacturer of the pump for a warrenty replacement and I complained about my dissatisfaction. They told me sump pumps are designed to fail. I told them my previous pump lasted 15 years. After three years the sides of the new cast iron/aluminum pump corroded completely through in four places. When the pump turned on it would spray water out the sides and would only pump out a gallon or two of water. I will never purchase a Basement Watchdog again and would not recommended it to anyone.
