Does this pump have a mechanical or pressure switch?

Mechanical float switch, yes. But, a pressure switch, not that I am aware of.

will this pump fit into a 5 gallon plastic bucket? Thanks

Asked by rocketmail February 12, 2020

Answers

The configuration of the output and the float make the overall width to wide for a 5 gal bucket. If it is possible to rotate the float switch to the side it would make it fit a 5 gal bucket. I have not tried this myself, but it would be improvement, Other than that it is a good pump.

From my recollection with 80% confidence, it is about 34 in to the top of pump. So take 8 in off you get about 26 and to be safe, assume it is 22-26in

Pump dimensions, height

Asked by Matt November 18, 2019

Dear Matt, I assume your question asks about the physical dimensions of the Superior Pump 1/3 HP Cast Iron Pedestal Sump Pump. You can easily find the answer on the Home Depot website for this product at: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Superior-Pump-1-3-HP-Cast-Iron-Pedestal-Sump-Pump-92301/206471980 Scroll down the page until you find the "Specifications" section. That is where you will find the answer to your question.

What is the minimum water level for the pump to start? I have very shallow pit.

Asked by Bill August 9, 2019
6
Answers

The OFF level is about 4 in (fixed) and the ON level is adjustable. Since the switch lever travels about 3 in, the ON level can go from minimum 7 in to a max about 14-16 in (my estimate)

What kind of bearing is in the water portion?

Asked by EJOhio May 23, 2019
5
Answers

I don't think there is any bearing in the water. The motor is on top and a long drive shaft goes to the bottom connecting to a spinning blade (see manufacture pictures)

Can I use a submersible pump instead of pedestal pump

Asked by babs April 5, 2019
5
Answers

Yes you can...typically pedestal pumps have a greater length on the float arm meaning your crock can fill more between cycles and as a result discharge more water but less frequently. Che k you local code and some municipalities no longer allow pedestal pumps but this only becomes an issue in a home inspection and when you sell.

I’m trying to find the quietest pedestal pump. Is this very loud? I was thinking of building an insulated box around it

Asked by Mark November 27, 2018
6
Answers

I found this pump to be very quiet! Unless I'm within 8 feet of it, I can't even hear it go on, and mine is nearly 2 years old now. Mine runs mostly during spring rains, turning on as often as approx. every 10 minutes for about 12 seconds to pump out the sump well and turn back off. I sure would NOT feel a need to deal with covering it for soundproofing. The motor is air-cooled, anyway, so I would prefer not to enclose it.

What country is this pump and motor made in?

Asked by Deryl September 3, 2018

Answers

Sorry for the delay.I had to pull the pump out of the sump. Label says Made in China and UL Listed

The "switch-on" height appears to be adjustable, what is the minimum "switch-on" height?"

Asked by Hans August 28, 2018

Answers

Min ON water level is about 7 in from bottom. Can be adjusted to about 16 in max

Junk
Worst warranty ever. The impeller broke after only a few months use. You can see by the picture the metal was clearly defective. The metal isn’t bent or ripped. It a clean break. Called about getting a replacement part and they said oh that’s not covered. They show 12 replacement parts that can be ordered. So what do they warranty for 5 years. Also made in China!!! Absolute junk. They don’t stand behind their warranty.

Response from Superior PumpApr 21, 2020
Hello. Thank you for your review and I am sorry to hear about your experience. The warranty covers any manufacture's defect within the 5 years. Unfortunately, we are unable to warranty the impeller as we can not control what is passed through the pump. That being said, we pride ourselves on customer service and we never want to hear that a customer had a bad experience. If you give us a call when you are free, we would like to talk with you about your product and see what we can do to improve your experience with Superior Pump. SuperiorPump

Runs very quiet. Best deal I could find in it's price range. I have had this for about a month and time will tell. That last one was in place since 1955 best as I can tell. I hope to get long life from this one. That is why I chose the one with the metal moving parts. So far nothing bad to say.

This unit does not pump quite as much gpm as the submersible style, but it also is STILL RUNNING and does not run the risk of sitting UNDERWATER. A former pump of mine failed in its first year of use. It was made by a reputable company. I will not know if this one is better until this time next year, but the build quality looks better that that one did. We shall see.
