Needed some peace of mind...
I purchased this combination after we had a significant flood caused by the plunger on our old sump pump jamming against the sump pit wall. I have tried multiple sump pumps and what intrigued me about this pump was the compact multiple float system. The Watchdog system came in a few days and I installed it in about 30 minutes. I have pvc rigid pipes running from the pump up about 3 ft to a 90º elbow and out the sump line. The first night after installation we had a second flood, but at no fault of the Watchdog system. This pump is so powerful it blew the pvc pipe right out the sump line in the wall and pumped the water right back into my basement. I fixed this problem by securing the discharge line, as you can see in one of the attached pictures. My second challenge was figuring out how to reposition the floats to allow a certain amount of water to remain in the sump pit so it wouldn't run constantly. You can remove the floats and re-position them up the pipe and clamp them back in place. It took a bit of experimenting to get this right, but after a bit my the floats are positioned just right. Of note, this pump is quiet compared to every other sump pump we have had and as a result I am going to order the Wi-Fi module to receive alerts. It's a bit unnerving not to hear the pump come on every once in a while. My first impressions are very positive and I highly recommend.

    Time Will Tell
    I use this pump in a sump that is my basement perimeter drain and the pump cycles often when there is heavy rain it has been the end of several cast Iron pumps that use a flote system and arm to actuate the internal switch. When I saw that this system utilized a 2 switch system for backup I figured that would be a no brainer we will see. The other thing I would like to mention when I read the Box and online description for some reason I thought the system was going to send me Text messages or Alerts when there was an issue however after reading thru the instruction manual to set that up I found that in order to have those features you have to buy an additional item So it does not come with that functionality. You have to purchase additional items so that is a little misleading.

        I wouldn't drop in a crock if you are having to move and amount of water consistently
        The main pump didn't last a week I had left town and had to have someone through a different pump in. Originally installed it becouse I was leaving town and it has a battery back up but main pump went out less than a week after I installed it

                I purchased the watchdog sump pump with battery back up pump 13 months ago.The pump,battery,and acid (all sold separately) Totaled $700.00.Had a licensed plumber install to spec.It ran occasionally when it rained .Last week the both pumps began to run continuously with no water in the pit !! I could not stop it from running.The plumber that installed it came back to see why it’s running.Said it could be defective float switches or board is bad.COST ME $1000 WITH INSTALLATION AND ONE YEAR LATER ITS MALFUNCTIONING !!!!

                We are sorry to hear you are having trouble with this system. You should contact our customer support team at 800-991-0466, option 3 so we can troubleshoot this with you and solve the problem you’re having with the pumps running non-stop. Sounds like something may be clogging the float switches for both of them to be doing this at the same time. We are available to take incoming calls from 9am – 5pm CT Monday through Friday.
