Review by LRW - Atlanta on Monday, February 4, 2013
Our basement is below our Septic. When we finished the basement and put in a bathroom, needed a sewage sump pump so our plumber recommended this pump. Has worked well for 5 years. Only issue was the pumps switch assembly (part # 004705) that went out twice on us. Saved the first one but just ordered the replacement part. The second time, instead of just ordering a new one I took it apart to see if I could figure out what was causing it to only last 2-3 years. Come to find out, it has a spring inside that in both cases had rusted and broken. This assembly is in a sealed portion of the pump that does not allow for water to get inside. I can only assume they are using a cheap spring. So, I've ordered an extra for the next time it breaks. Other than the switch, this thing is a workhorse. We had my son and his wife live down in our basement for 3 years so the pump got lots of work.
