Hi Terry, The pump only runs off the battery. The cord that plugs into an outlet is for keeping the battery charged. Thanks

Handle Seeds?

Asked by DCW August 5, 2020

Answer

Good morning, The pump's base housing will only allow small items, up to 1/8" pass through it without the possibility of jamming or clogging the pump. ALSO, this is not designed for exterior use, interior only. Maybe call us at 1-800-495-9278 Monday - Friday between 8:am & 5:pm central time and we can talk about your pump needs. Thanks

Since you don't recommend this model as a primary pump, what model do you suggest as primary?

Asked by CDW August 4, 2020
1
Answer

Hi there, The 12 volt pump is designed as a back up. Any of our 120 volt pumps will be fine as a primary pump. You could also buy the #92911 that is a 1/2 HP, or the 92941 1/3rd HP 120 volt main pump Pre-Plumed with the 12 volt back up pump Thanks

Answer

Hello. Yes! The switch can be adjusted simply by making the tethered switch shorter or longer. Make the switch shorter and it will turn on sooner; make the switch longer and it will turn on less and pump longer.

Hi there, This is NOT designed to be a replacement for a 120 volt sump pump. It is a back up for only if you have a power outage and should not be used as your main pump

Hi there, Yes as long as there is no other pump on the pit or basin. You need to be sure the float does not get hung up or stuck on anything so be careful. Thanks

Easy to install if you have basic pvc plumbing knowledge. I actually secured the pump onto an existing pvc pipe that drains a walkout stairway, the tether switch is attached to the main pump discharge pvc pipe. It's a tight space, and I think the float switch would work better, but using a hose to test and fill the pit, the tether worked everytime. I am using a Mighty Max 100ah battery, which has terminal screws that are narrower than the terminal lead wire connectors. I needed to use narrower washers than what was provided. If you get a battery that has terminal posts, the included terminal adapters would fit the battery lead wires. Who knows when I will actually NEED it, but takes a weight off my shoulders when we might and do lose power.

Does the job! Fits in my sump as a replacement for a pedestal pump that died. I would give it 5 stars, except that: 1) mounting the pump on the main discharge line isn't easy for the non-professional to make it plumb. But that's also a benefit because my sump isn't quite 18" in diameter. 2) I had to use a check valve with rubber sleeves and clamps on the discharge of my main pump. This isn't as stable as if it was all hard-piped. If your sump is 18" or larger, I recommend purchasing the pre-assembled main pump + backup package. Installation would be much easier.

Works fine when tested. We lost power recently and the alarm came on, but have not had to use it as a back-up. I'll be happy if I never need to use it.

The pump was easy to install and works as expected. This unit came with a bad power cord. Calling customer service at Superior Pump resulted in a very quick response with a new power cord on the way. So even with the bad power cord I gave it 5 stars because stuff happens and Phil at Superior Pump took care of the problem. I would recommend them .
