A: These units can be used in crawl space as long as they are pumping clear water only. The unit will come on when the water level reaches 9" from the bottom of the pump and shut off when the water level drops to 4" from the bottom of the pump.
A: If the enclosed space holds water 6”deep or more it should work. Level the pump to operate properly.
A: I don’t believe that will work. There is a 3/4-1” rise from the floor to the top of the base so you’d end up having at least an inch of water before the pump would begin to pump. My suggestion is to use a pool pump that will pick up water as it begins to accumulate. The negative side of this is that you have to manually plug this type of pump each time you want it to work. Hope this helps
A: The new Ridgid submersible sump pumps will have the 4 screw cap.
A: The newest models with have the 4 small Phillips Head Screws holding on the switch cap. The older style only had 3 Phillips Head Screws holding on the switch cap. The floats and rods are the same size but the colors have changed.
A: The sump pumps are designed with a 1 1/2" discharge. They can be reduced to 1 1/4" but no smaller. By reducing the pipe down smaller, you cause a back pressure on the pump and will damage the motor. Also, our sump pumps are designed for clear water only. Discharge from a Water Softener is considered brine water and will damage the pump and void the warranty.
A: It will not hurt the pump, it will reduce the flow rate which may not be a problem in this case.
