So let’s frame the situation here...I built my house about two years ago on top of what apparently is a natural spring that produces more water than the entire nation of Guam. Seriously, it seems to do better than my well. Constantly filled up my sump, and the humidity of my basement was super high. As an added plus, my water is really

Best Sump Pump that you can buy. Nothing can stop it from working. One small problem is that the metal air hole in the pump will inevitably get clogged with gunk or rust so you need to drill a small 3/8th inch weep hole in the outlet pipe about 8" above the base of the pump and before the
One Way Check Valve. This weep hole

This pump is high quality and pumps a large volume fast. There is one BIG problem with it though, the built in float switch. The issue is that the range on the float is both not adjustable and far too short for your average sump pit. The pump will only pump out about 5 inches of water from a 22inch diameter pit during one cycle, this

Been in the water about a month. Nice quality unit and quiet. Hopefully it will last longer than the last one. Tip for when you install: Note your natural water level. This is the level it sits all the time but is not threatening to overflow. If you put the pump trigger below this level, it will run every 10 minutes forever. If you

I have had 4 pumps fail in 5 years. I own a very aggressive property but the bottom line is that none of my previous pumps had this build quality. It weighs 2-3 times what the pump it replaced. The float on this is designed very simple but brilliantly at the same time. My previous pump failed due to burning out from a stuck float. I

Easy installation and solid performance so far.

The pump is not very loud at all, which is good because my sump pump closet is in my basement guest bedroom. Combined with a silent check valve, its as quiet as I can reasonably make it.

I was a bit disappointed at the power cord length - it is several feet shorter

So now that I've had this for a while, I feel compelled to comment about it.

2 years ago I moved my laundry to the basement and naturally that meant using a pump to elevate that water. I didn't really give it a second thought from there: I used an all-in-one solution from the local "home store" (hint: store = depot)

This is a very nicely packaged system. Its set up to be serviced easily and has a better quality pump then the other packaged systems I compared it too. Zoeller pumps are the quality all others should be compared to. American made of cast iron with what I would consider the best standard switch setup available.

I buried this unit to help with a low area on our property and ran PVC to the back of the property. The directions could be a little clearer as I didn't realize that the vent was a vital part of the operation of this unit. Once that was fixed it worked flawlessly. A great

I know you're probably wondering, "How could a submersible water pump capture the heart of a woman who lives above sea level? What's the attraction?" In a nutshell - high performance in an efficient little package. It all began when I rented a dumpster before a severe rainstorm, and about 3 feet of water collected at the bottom.

Our pool requires partial draining and refilling a couple times a year due to increasing stabilizer levels, renting a pump is a process so we decided to give this one a go- especially since it actually cost less to purchase then to rent! In 3 hours it drained 18" of water- probably close to 5000 gallons. We used the U.S Pool Supply

Totally amazed at the power of this little guy. Bought this one mostly for spring flooding issue in our backyard.

I was very reluctant to order this. With a name like "Waterbug", it couldn't be a serious machine - and I needed to empty my 1700 gal swim spa so
a new feature could be put on it. Boy was I wrong!. Instructions were really not needed, the arrows and labels on the device were good enough. I plopped that baby in the water

I had a flooded yard and garage. This sump pump appeared to be the "one", however I'd like to talk about the suggested purchases. When I first got this sump pump, I tried to attach my garden nose but no dice. A standard garden hose is too small for this pump. So, I went back to Amazon and searched for the pump again. It recommended a hose

I just installed this pump but it is as many many others have commented very quiet and I have 5ft of lift and had no problems emptying the sump pit in less than 30 seconds! It has rained here the past 2 days straight and I had to go check to make sure it was pumping because I could not here it from more than 10 feet away! I chose this

Love this pump so far. I have an house built in 1979 when they used smaller sump wells and it has 2 inlets draining into it. That's not a problem for the old pedestal style sump pumps, which you can still find, but most plumbers recommend submersible pumps now.. Incoming water would have run on to the float for every submersible pumps

This worked great for awhile but switch somehow fouled in heavy rains and pump quit working because of a jammed switch rod.. Float was all the way to top trying to turn it on but for some reason (not clear to me) the float could not trip the switch on and it didn't run and a secondary backup pump had to take over.

I had originally bought this pump from Home Depot. It arrived pre-broken - it had been dropped before HD packaged it for shipping and the float switch was a mess. Took it back for a refund at HD. I could not wait another week for HD to get me a new one so I checked Amazon. Prime had a new pump at my house in 2 days. Easy to install, and

I have to say I'm impressed with the solid construction of the pump and the operation of it seems excellent. However, I am disappointed with a few particulars regarding adjustments.

This pump is the ideal size for m (1/3 HP), needing it only when I get an above average day or two of rainfall. That happened yesterday. It switches on at about 7 inches of water in the sump basin, taking about 15 seconds to draw it down to approximately 2 and 1/2 inches. And that's the reason for 4 stars.

My sump pump is 14 years old and it's time to replace it before getting too late. I did lots of research and all point to Zoeller Sump pump as the best one.

I installed this after the pump that came with the house had failed and the basement filled with a foot of water in spring 2011. The Zoeller is still going strong with zero maintenance. We had a bunch of rain this past spring and this little tank just chucked it straight out of the sump with no questions asked. I'm considering

I stopped using my 275 gallon above ground sled mounted steel diesel tank. At 69 years old, I no longer use my equipment enough to keep my fuel fresh.

Over the last 4+ years we've had to replace two Zoeller Pumps in two separate Homes due to their typical, well-known Sticky Float Switch Problems.

This seems like a quality pump. It is a direct replacement for and a little better than the M53. And, it is worth the extra dollars over the M53. You get a better switch, a metal impeller, a lighted plug end, and a bigger price tag. But do NOT expect these pumps to last 15 to 20 years like the older Zoller pumps. I learned that lesson

My old M53 Zoeller pump failed after 10 years so looking for a quality replacement I went with the M63, a beefier, heavier version of my old Zoeller.

If you're looking at a Liberty Pump, you're most likely also comparing it to a Zoeller Pump. First off, both are excellent choices and plenty of people in their reviews will tell you that they are far superior to what you'll find at the 'big box' stores. I wholeheartedly agree. Both brands offer several pumps on Amazon that are

I use this pump to get maple syrup out of 55 gallon drums so I can put it in retail packaging. The first time I used it the syrup was about 38 degrees Fahrenheit.
