      A:  The BMS4700 functions best when assembled as instructed in the owners manual. Any modifications you decide to make could result in damage to the unit and would not be covered under warranty .

        A:  You could use this unit, with base to keep the walls secure. Just mark out where the pump assembly is and cut a hole using an appropriate cutting device. This will void any and all warranties. I would recommend fully assembling unit and test for proper fu

          Will not warranty if on foundation is Pavers
          Shed was fine for 2 years until the roof started to bow, shocks would no longer hold the roof up and now the bottom latch broke. Even though the shed is still under warranty they denied my claim due to the shed being on pavers. I live in Florida and our neighborhood is pavers only. No concrete allowed. I will no longer purchase any of these products as pavers move just as much as concrete cracks. My whole driveway, walkway, and porch are all pavers professionally installed by the builder.

            Customer Service
            I purchased 2 of these sheds for my pool floaties and they are assembled on wood frames and the foot of my pool. About 2 months after they were assembled, we had our first 100 degree day. I'm in Texas. That evening I went out and saw that the right side of the shed, at the hinge attachment point, had completely melted. I contacted customer service and they requested a couple pictures which I sent them. The next day, another 100 degree day, my other shed started melting in the exact same spot. I again contacted customer service and had 2 new sides to me in 5 days. I can only imagine there was a defect in manufacturing as the sheds were not being used yet. It happens. I am replacing the side walls this weekend and suspect they will be fine. Although concerned, I will say that their customer service was understanding and quick to get me the replacement parts. Thank you Suncast for the quick turnaround!

              Waste of Time & Money
              Got everything together but the top. That's because the "self tapping" screws don't fit in the holes of the arms. All I'm told over & over is to use WD-40 and rub in soap. Neither works, so I guess I have to find Hercules or drill the holes a little bigger or take a hammer to them so I can finish this. Wish I tried that 1st then I wouldn't have continued to put it together but instead return it.

                Swimming Pool Pump House 2017
                Installed 2017. Assembly was ok, better bolt assembly would’ve been better. I used all-thread to bolt it onto the buried cinder-blocks to keep it stable then 4” concrete around it… I cut out portions of the bottom to fit pump, filter, and piping, etc. Also use cinder-blocks on top 3 corners to keep the North Wind from tearing off top, see pics. Use a 2” pvc pipe across top between lid and walls with the blocks on top in summer so it can ventilate properly. Been awesome for 6 summers.

                  DO NOT BUY! GARBAGE!
                  Purchased Suncast storage shed 3 years ago, and door hinges rust out and plastic hinge supports broke off. Top cover warps and cracks Lifetime what a joke! Stand behind your product Suncast! More garbage made overseas. Waste of money! have had plenty of sheds worse by far. Called Suncast and 1st good luck getting thru 2nd telling cause i live in Florida was reason for weather abuse and rust even though it's in the shade. You sell them in Florida and offer lifetime warranty and these are not that cheap.

                    One of the worst experiences I’ve had with a company & product. The shed lasted less than a year before the crossbar failed on the lid. The lid then bowed and the side started to cave in. I only used it to store my receptacles. I contacted the company because its supposed to have a 10 year warranty. Somehow the company deemed the lid was my fault but the side could be replaced. They wanted me to pay out of pocket for the lid which I refused. I voiced my displeasure but was completely blown off.

                      screws don't fit
                      Do not buy this unit. The assembly was moving along reasonably well until I reached the point where I had to secure the lid hinge to the lid. The screw that I was supposed to use didn't fit into the hole. It is impossible to finish assembly without getting additional parts.

                        Well-Constructed Storage Shed
                        This Storage Unit is very sturdy and well-designed. I agree, however, with others' reviews that the instructions could be improved with better higher-resolution illustrations - that being said, I strongly recommend going over the instructions and taking inventory of all components prior to assembly. I did anchor my unit to a concrete slab with 4 - 5/16" x 3" Galvanized Steel Lag Bolts, Flat Washers and 1/2" Outside Diameter Concrete Lag Shields and the Platform/Floor laid flat to the slab and is very sturdy. Used to store my two Trash Bins and Some Garden Tools. Great Product.

                          Over-priced flimsy plastic
                          I really did not want another expensive piece of flimsy plastic, but what else is there? Assembly instructions were vague in places. I put it together by myself, but getting the lid on really is a two-person job. My biggest complaint is the hollow floor buckled in places while I kneeled inside it during assembly. Really? The floor breaks before you even put anything in it? I made a shelf (optional) to put inside, carefully cutting it to the length specified in the instructions. It was about an inch too short! The sides flex so much that you should measure the length of the board you will need and ignore the instructions. If you need a storage shed that you won't actually put anything in (except for inflatable pool toys or other stuff light enough not to damage the floor) then give this serious consideration.
