Yes, the 554425 is an upgrade to the 554411. It has more power and better flow.

where is it made?

I don't know where it is made. After I installed the new one I threw the box out. I will tell you that I bought it to replace the one that was attached to my AC/Furnace that lasted for 16 years. Don't think I could ask much more of it. The new one is working fine.

Can you pump a 50:50 water/food grade glycol with this pump?

Asked by Beer July 25, 2020

Answers

It should handle the viscosity by PSI but will diminish the output pressure slightly. You’d have to check if glycol may effect the rings or seals. It’s not rated as food grade so may not meet your application.

I have a VCM-20UL 554903. Will this model replace my current model?

Asked by MG July 21, 2020

Answers

I just called Little Giant on your behalf, and we must of talked to the same person as he said he had just gotten a call with the same question. So as you probably already know, the number you gave is so old it is no longer in there system. And i can also add that I could find nothing on line about it. However as long as the voltage is correct this should be fine. Typically most condensate pumps work on 115/120 volts. meaning you just plug them in. However a small percentage of installations employ a 230/240 volt pump that gets wired to the AC unit directly. So you want to make sure you get the correct voltage.

I’m not a professional, sobI can’t answer your question. However, a professional installer suggested I purchase this to replace one removed from the furnace. It is actually just like the original one.

If the next one up {the 51.99) has a stainless steel pump shaft and a safety switch, does anyone ...

I am sorry for the delay as I was away last week. The “UL” in the model number stands for underwriters laboratories as they were the company that certified this appliance. The “S” stands for safety switch. Now there is a lot of confusion out there as to what a safety switch is. I hope to clarify that now. Technically a safety switch is nothing but a set of dry contacts coming off a high water switch. This means nothing to most people so please allow me to elaborate. In some areas with high humidity the AC will run constantly and pull thousands of gallons of water out of the air a year. So much so that when the pump fails the tank could overflow and cause water damage. To prevent this many AC manufacturers have installed options into their equipment that allow them to be connected to the condensate pump. This way if the condensate pump fails the safety switch can shut down the AC unit so that the flow of condensate ceases. Keep in mind the safety switch can only be employed if the AC equipment has this option built in. If it done not the dry contacts just go unused.

My AC stopped working and my son in law notice the leak coming from old VCMA-20ULS 115-Volt Condensate Removal Pump. We ordered a new one and my son installed it. He just disconnected the old one and put in the new one and we had AC working again. That was several years ago and thank God, it works wonderfully. I recommended it 100%.

Replaces existing identical pump which was in service for nearly 13 years. Just unplug old pump, loosen two screws, remove outlet line, remove old pump from furnace wall, drain it, and install new pump. It probably took longer to open the box than to install the pump but that was because it was a simple replace job.

Our old condensate pump was a different brand, and I was about to order another of the same model. However, reviews for our old pump were not good. Reviews were really good for this Little Giant pump, so we ordered it from homedepot.com. It was plug n play to install it, and its been working great for over a month now.

Worked better than expected. Would have gotten an Excellent rating had it come with the tubing and fastener necessary to complete installation. Instead had to go back to Home Depot to get additional materials.

Works very well. Very quiet. Much better pump than the 10-year-old pump that was on the furnace. The only reason it has 4 instead of 5 stars is that the little wires for an emergency shutoff switch had no instructions for what to do with them if you don't HAVE an emergency shutoff device. My solution was to put wirenuts on them. It works, so I guess that was the right choice. I'd like to know, however, if it really is.

My propane boiler came with this pump when it was new. It pumped out the condesated water within 11 seconds and very quietly in the basement directly under my bed upstairs. It never woke me up and the only way I could hear it was to already be awake listening for it and then it was still fairly quiet. That one lasted 3 years and 3 months. I bought a different pump that turned out to be so noisy that I could hear it on the next level of my house at the furthest diagonal away. Couldn't stand it so I returned it within the week and got another Little Giant Model 554425 like my propane boiler came with. This guy even costs considerable less than the other I tried to use and draws less energy at 1.5 amps. I would certainly get another. By the way...when these get tired they begin to take longer and longer to pump out the water as they also get somewhat noisier. Mine reached up to 3 minutes of running and I ditched it for this new one. Love it, love it, love it. Easy to replace of course.
