Yes, a float monitors the condensate level and automatically turns on as required.

Hi there why no safety switch

Asked by Sar December 10, 2020

Answer

The simple answer is that this is the version without the safety switch. The Home Depot also offers the version with the safety switch know as VCMA-20ULST or Little Giant model number 554435. The letters "ST" at the end denote this additional feature. If you put the Home Depot SKU 204481229 in the search box on there web site it will come up. Now if your question is more technical, as in why would you not use a safety switch allow me to explain. A safety switch is nothing more than an unpowered high water switch. We technically call it a set of "dry contacts" dry meaning unpowered. Therefore a safety switch only works when the equipment it is servicing has been manufactured to utilize it. Not all condensate producing appliances have this feature. For example my condensing high efficiency boiler produces roughly 5 gallons of acidic condensate on a cold winter day. Although it produces the condensate the manufacturer did not build it to it the feature to control the condensate pump. So although my pump has a safety switch there is no terminal on the boiler to connect it to. Thus the wires from the dry contacts just hang there. So in the end I purchased a pump with a feature I could not take advantage of.

The unit did not come with replacement vinyl tubing, do you carry the tubing for this model? If s...

Answer

This particular pump is offered both with and without tube. The models that come with the accessory tube would have had a "T" in the model number. This one does not. All the Home Depot stores in my area sell vinyl tube so I assume all would. The outlet barb on this unit is 3/8 outside diameter. So the inside diameter of the tube to go over it should be 3/8" as well. The outside diameter of the tube would be equal to the inside diameter of the tube plus the wall thickness of the tube. I would assume this would have no bearing on what tube you get so long as the inside diameter is 3/8" To answer your question I opened one up and the tube that Little Giant uses is 1/2" outside diameter. If you put "3/8 vinyl tube" in the search block on the Home Depot web site you will find they offer coils in a variety of different lengths

This is a great little pump. I replaced my previous Little Giant that lasted 20 years. The new pump was extremely easy to install taking about 15 minutes to complete the job. This pump has plenty of power and is reasonably quiet. I would highly recommend this pump.
