Q:What is the difference between 506158 and 506168? What is the difference between Model 6-CIA and 6CIA-ML What is the difference in head pressure that needs 10FT+ lift?
by|Mar 26, 2024

Answer This Question

A:  The 506168 has been discontinued for quite some time. But from what I see in an old catalog it appears that the 506168 had an electrical cord that was 2’ longer than the 506158. Other than that, I don’t see any differences. The 6CIA-ML comes with a on/off pressure switch that is calibrated differently than the 6CIA. The 6CIA-ML comes on when the water level is 4”-7” and shuts off when the water level is 11/2”-3”. The 6CIA comes on when the water level is 7”-x10” in depth and shuts off when the water level is 1”-4”. My preference is the 6-CIA-ML because I like to leave a little more water in the sump. More water in the sump diminishes the chance that air can get into the volute and air bind the pump. It’s a subtle preference and there are those that would say I am being overly cautious but having had pumps air bind resulting in a flooded basemets and i am cautious.

    Q:Sump pump failure resulted in a flooded basement. Replacing the pump, but paranoid and looking for a full-on backup to be place above (higher than) the primary pump to kick in should the primary fail again. Could this be used for that purpose?

    Q:Is this model same as 506158 ? If no, what is difference.
    by|Jan 9, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The difference between the 506158 and the 506160 is the calibration of the pressure switch which turns the pump on and off. The 506158 turns on at a water depth of 7”-10” and off at 1”-4”. Whereas the 506160 turns on at a water depth of 4”-7” and off at a water depth of 11/2” – 31/2”. If you scroll down the Home Depot product listing page you will come to a section entitled Product Details. If you expand that section, you will find PDFs of the product documents. The instruction sheet has a matrix outlining specifics of the different models.

      Q:Where do you send the pump for service
      by|Dec 28, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Little Giant is the trade name used by a much larger pump manufacturer, Franklin Electric, for their small sump and sewage pumps. If you go to the Franklin web site, there is a manufacturer’s representative locator. If you contact your local rep, they will be able to identify the authorized service reps in your area. You can also contact Little Giants customer service center at 844 250 4982. However, given this pump’s size and cost, it would not be a pump that I would choose to have repaired. If it were the bronze version, used in special applications and often costing over a thousand dollars, I would. But I have found it counterproductive to put money into cast iron pumps that are out of warranty. It always seems to be less expensive in the long run to buy a new pump. This has always been the case due to what water does to cast iron and all ferrous metals over time.

        This sump pump is very quiet. Our old one which was the same model was very noisy. The reason why I rated it 3 stars was because after a couple of weeks, it had already began to rust. This was the reason we replaced the old one, which was 13 years old. Now after almost 8 weeks, is has rusted considerably more. We had to have a plumber install it, which isn't cheap. But, it is still working fine, so far.

        This pump works great. The second one I've had in 5 years. The only issue is that it continues to run when pumping very hot water (dish washer)

        A small powerful work horse that doesn’t take up a lot of real estate is just what I needed and I am very pleased and thankful I found the Little Giant sump pump.
