I already have a backup sump pump system. My main pump broke. Is it easy to install this pump to my backup pump?

Asked by Amy July 13, 2016
2
Answers

See my comments on this. I assume that you have the Watchdog backup pump, and this is a direct replacement for it. Make sure that it is the correct size (1/3 or 1/2 HP) for their different models. (If the 12v pump is yellow, it is 1/3) If it is not Watchdog, you will have to take measurements, of course.

I don’t think so. The switch is a caged float and even if you altered it and dropped it to the floor and would need more level than that. It would probably leave that much water because of the way the pump pulls.

Can this pump be left plugged up and it automatically come on when water gets in basement and does it scout out the water

can i use this with a battery if i cut the plug and hook up wires to my battery backup system

Asked by bob August 13, 2017

Answer

This unit is designed to run off of AC power only, so that would not work. When using one of our AC sump pumps, we always recommend the use of a Basement Watchdog Battery Backup system. These systems have their own independent pump and work when the primary pump either cannot run because of a power outage, or when the primary pump fails. There are three models, each with their own features. If you have any questions or require any further assistance, feel free to contact our customer support team at 800-991-0466, option 3. We are available to take incoming calls from 9am – 5pm CT Monday through Friday.

Asked by Cmele January 3, 2017

Answer

We highly recommend using 1 ½” PVC pipe for that pump, but yes you can purchase a pipe adaptor and a reducer and connect it to a garden hose if needed. Keep in mind this will decrease the overall pumping capacity. For more information, please contact our customer support team at 800-991-0466, option 3. We are available to take incoming calls from 9am - 5pm CT Monday through Friday.

what is minimum water depth

Asked by Bubba July 11, 2015
1
Answer

That pump will start drawing air when the water level drops down to 1 3/4". Once the float switch is activated it will run for about 10 seconds then stop. So for example if you only have the float switch set to activate after 3 inches of water. Its probably going to pump water for a second or two then draw air the rest of the time. The best way to have it setup is to mount the float switch high enough so that when the 10 second run time is up its still leaving about 2-3 inches of water over the bottom of the pump. You always want to avoid having the pump draw air if possible.

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.

Response from WatchdogDecember 27, 2019
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.
