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.

1/2 HP Submersible Sump Pump is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 81.

I purchased this sump to replace a 3 year old model because it had a hole in the wall of the pump. Called the company and they told me where I could find it and a model number and it was slick. Within a week I had the new one. Problem is it did not come with any additional parts, mainly the check valve that sits atop of the sump. I could not remove the old one and had to make another trip to the hardware store to purchase. I truly feel that this part should be a part of the purchase, especially since it would be so easy to switch it out and re-assemble the plumbing above.

The product performs well and seems to be fairly quite.The only issue I had was when replacing this pump on a Big combo backup system you should have a new check valve as well that attaches to top of pump. The old was valve was impossible to get off after 5 years. Just a fyi on the big combo unit the smaller backup pump worked well when the main pump failed.

The pump runs very quiet and empties the basin quickly. The watchdog feature, with 2 switches as separate floats (one for backup) is nice for piece of mind. This is the best sump pump I've installed so far.
