What will it do?
Many users often ask themselves how does the sump really pump work? Well, we can tell you that this product will be of excellent help if you need to dry out your basement or flooded space. It is designed to drain water containing no larger than 1/2″ – 3/4″ solids. The pump is а part of the ECO-FLO Products which are made to beat the competition in flow rate and head performance.
The pump works quietly and comes with great concise directions that make it easier to be installed. It has a 2-inch threaded output and comes with a 2″ to 1.5″ adapter for 1.5″ pipes. This pump does not have a built-in sump pump check valve. The wide output pipe is a great advantage in case you have the discharge pipe to handle all this water.
You might have to get a few fittings in order to make the 2-inch output pipe fit in the discharge pipe. If you don’t do that you run the risk of having a leak, bursting pipes or simply having a small flow rate.
The unit does not require any special kind of maintenance. Just be sure that the pump and motor are submerged in order to prevent any overheating of the pump motor. Check if the level sensor switch is working and the pump will shut down at the proper level without running the pump dry. The pump will also regulate the level of water coming through it.
The 8-ft cord is long enough to allow safe plug in to an extension cord away from the water source. But note that If you are going to use this in a sump pit it is recommended for the hole to be at least 11 inches in diameter and 24 inches deep for proper operation.
