Does this go on and off like every 30 seconds (very short pump cycle)? My current one does that and it is SO annoying.
Asked by: leah
I bought mine as a substitute for when my existing one goes out, so still haven't used it. That being said, I don't think the pump is your problem, rather it is just keeping up with the need of its job. This time of year with heavy rain and snow melt frequently raises the water table near to ground level. If you have a crawl space like me or other area that your pumping out, it is filling with water so fast that your pump is coming on to pump it out. It will slow down or stop as the water table drops. Learn to like that hum because it means the water is being pumped away from the area you don't want it to be. One more thought, make sure its pumping it far enough away so it isn't just running back in.

does it attach to a garden hose

Asked by: bill
To connect this pump to a garden hose you will need to purchase a pipe size reducer, 1 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch, and also a 3/4 inch to garden hose adapter. Both are available in the Home Depot plumbing department. UNFORTUNATELY, you will not be satisfied with the flow through the garden hose, which is way to skinny for the flow that this pump can deliver. INSTEAD, purchase a 24 foot sump pump discharge hose, located in the Home Depot store near the sump pumps. You may need to ask a store associate to help find it. That hose has a much larger diameter than any garden hose.

What is the maximum solid waste this pump can handle?
Asked by: Al
This pump is not designed for any solid waste - There are other pumps better designed - this is purely water (ground) only.

The quality of the material really surprised me, as well as the overall construction of the submersible. Install was actually quick and easy once I had the pipe-setup required and boy does this thing pump water quick. Our old sump would take minutes to drain, this one slams through the water like no tomorrow. From a full sump to empty in under 30 seconds. The float works really well and isn't hollow - so not to worry about it breaking any time soon. The cord is just long enough to reach up about 8 feet to where our electrical box is located. The cycle time is around 20 seconds, from full to empty once it gets going. A nice feature is the dual handle on top to maneuver or pull from virtually any direction. The filter on the bottom is small enough for water and will keep virtually everything out so there will be no pump damage. Extremely happy with this pump and with the way it is designed - I am thinking this will last quite a long time.

I bought this sump last week so I can't talk about the longevity of the unit but I will say it is the quietest sump I've ever used. Our home is in a very wet area and the sumps will run year round but with these constant on/off rains we're having it's working overtime. With the sump pit located directly under the master bedroom there is never a time we didn't hear the pump cycling on and off, especially at night. That was until we got this new Ridgid sump, it's so quiet. Both my wife and myself have gone down to the basement several times to check on sump just to make sure it was still working since we couldn't hear it. I assure my wife the sump is still working since the alarm on the back off sump isn't going off.

Was extremely happy I found this product while I was quickly in need of a sump pump during a heavy rain period in Michigan. When you're at the mercy of what products are in stock, you can often have a little trepidation about not getting the time to fully research and audit what you're buying. Luckily, the Rigid Sump Pump was a breeze to install and has worked extremely well these first couple of weeks. Previously, you could hear and feel every time our sump pump kicked on in our house. Although there's a bit of security knowing it's working, it was a bit of an annoyance constantly hearing a humming. I happy to say this product is extremely quiet and keeps up with our needs even in a heavy downpour. The bobber's setup help fight off any obstructions and the electrical cord was long enough to suit our needs. Installation was quick and complete within the hour. Overall, very happy with the performance, price and warrant cost/value ratio.

It is very quiet & it solved our extreme pipe knocking problem with our replaced (only 2 yr. old) CDU800 Wayne pump. We remain, however, confused that this class of pump (according to the manual) is not recommended for laundry. Everyone does!

I also like that the float goes vertically because we have an old sump well that is small. This sump pump fits in the well and does the job perfectly, keeping the basement dry. In heavy rain, it runs a lot, but we've had no water problem since installing this RIDGID pump. The carry handle on the top is very strong - you can carry the pump by the handle.
