Product Overview

The Basement Watchdog BW Series submersible sump pumps are ultra-compact and powerful. They feature a top discharge design making it ideal for use in sump pits as narrow as 7 in. Dia. The powerful and energy efficient, continuous duty, permanent split capacitor (PSC) motor provides up to 3,720 GPH at 0 ft. lift and only pulls 3.5 Amps. The pump will pay for itself in energy savings. The heavy-duty cast iron/cast aluminum housing along with dual ball bearings and dual seals protect the motor for superior performance.

Small footprint, fast, quiet, good value
My old pump ran every 15 minutes for 6-7 seconds, rain or shine, winter or summer and lasted 6-1/2 years. I replaced it with a new Basement Watchdog pump that only runs every few hours. The new pump is much quieter and the water does not hammer the check valve like the old 3/4 HP Flotec. Also saving on electricity, the new pump uses 3.5 amps the old one used 7 amps. With my very active rusty water sump, only time will tell how long this new pump will last. The only con I could find is the non-adjustable run time. Because of the fixed 10 second run time I had to mount the float higher then the recommended height (the upper float trip is above the drain pipe), so that the pump would not run dry.

I had to call the company because each time it rain it would deactivate the primary pump. I was told to place the small dual float above the caged float so it would activate the primary float. I am waiting to check it out once it rain. The setup manual do not tell u to set it up that way.

This is a stand alone primary pump that doesn't come with a check valve. Normally you can use whatever check valve you would like with it. However, if you have our DFK961 "Combination" system and are purchasing this as a replacement pump for that system, then you would need to use the stock check valve that comes with that system. Sorry for any confusion regarding this. For further information please feel free to call our service team at 800-991-0466 option 3.

    This is an exact replacement pump for a backup pump system. It was as simple as undoing a few clamps and just swap them out.
