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
The unit's manual says that the unit switches on at 9 inches of water and switches off at about 4 inches. In my sump pit, it empties it out in about 5 seconds...it doesn't come on that often because our sump pit doesn't fill up quickly. It all depends on how quickly your pit fills up...

Does this pump come with the check valve or do I have to buy one

Does this pump come with the check valve or do I have to buy one
Asked by: Gram
This did not come with a check valve. In my setup the check valve is inline with the discharge pipe.

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.

Is basin included? What other accessories are needed?

Asked by: Lowell
This pump is designed to run while submerged in a sump. A check valve and pipe to carry the water from the pump to a storm sewer will also be needed. Most municipalities prohibit emptying sump water into their sanitary sewer systems.

1/2 HP Cast Iron Submersible Sump Pump is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 217.

The only thing I would change is the float mechanism. I wish it was adjustable or had more "distance" between the off and on settings. Depending upon how quick your sump pit is filling up or the size of your sump pit this pump may run a lot.

It took one half an hour for me to connect the piping and then hurricane Michael tested it. I am happy to report that my basement remained dry. The pump is almost noiseless .I would recommend highly .
