Q: Hallo Jim,

CH6000 & CH8000 - witch one to use on a basement sump pump?

Igor.

by Igor from Illinois on February 03, 2016

A: Either one will work on a 120V, 14 max amp rated sump pump. The HC6000 gives you the ability to fine-tune your ON & OFF activation points by providing a sensor for each activation point. The HC8000 provides you with a single sensor that is used to activate your pump. Once activated, the pump will evacuate water till the pump loses prime or starts sucking air.

Q: Can i mount the top electrode facing Up instead of down? so i can get more water.?
by Jeff from New Jersey on March 12, 2015

A: Yes, the sensor could be mounted facing up instead of down without any problems. The sensors are completely sealed, so they can be mounted in any orientation you like.

Correction Of Previous Negative Review
I recently wrote a negative review of this product and wish to correct that opinion. The fault (a high electric bill) was not with the product but with the installation. The previous electrician had set the differential between the lo and high incorrectly and the pump was switching on too frequently. We were away for a month and didn't notice. A second electrician installed the switch correctly and it now works exactly as promised. To make a long story short---an excellent product that... more

Electrical Bill Went Way Up
A friend, a licensed electrician, installed the hi lo pump switch on our sump pump. The next day we left for a month in Europe. All lights, dehumidifier, etc. were turned off during the month we were away. Just the refrigerator and the sump pump remained on. Upon returning, we received an electrical bill for $240!

For one month with nobody home and most things turned off! Perhaps, the fault was with the installation (switch set for too low a water level in the pit). Will reset the... more

Jim, the Sump Pump Expert
Product Expert
John,
I'm sorry to hear of the problem you experienced with your HydroCheck Hi-Lo Pump Switch. If you set both of the sensors low with a very small differential, this could cause the pump to operate frequently. Typically, this switch is used to create a longer pumping cycle. Depending on the pump used, cycle frequency and total head lift, I suppose that it could have resulted in a high electric bill, but I would suggest calling HydroCheck tech support at (877) 225-2124 for additional assistance. If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call me.

Sincerely,
Jim Owiecki

Replacing A Float Switch
Since the float switch with a submersible pump only has about four inches of movement, my pump would constantly cycle on and off. Installing the HydroCheck was a simple way of setting the on/off cycle to the near full capacity of the sump pit, thereby reducing the number of cycles that the pump turns on and off. As others have commented, the flashing red light should be used to indicate a problem instead of for normal operation. I do worry about the lower sensor developing buildup from being... more

Just What The Pump Needed!
As others have stated, wanted a way to easily set the on and off points for my sump pump. This has to be the easiest way to accomplish - and likely the most reliable as there are no moving parts to fail. I followed instructions, filled sump pit with hose to simulate heavy rain and worked exactly as described and how I hoped it would. Still waiting on mother nature to put it to the test but I see no problems arising from this product. It is a bit expensive, but how do you put a price on... more

Works As Promised
Had a pump that was cycling too often as the float had only 4 inches of movement up and down. The electronic switch allows the sump to fill to a higher level which makes the fill-up take longer and the pump stays on longer...pump ran 3 seconds before, which can burn out the pump, and now it runs 18 seconds. The cycle went from 2 minutes to 8 minutes. Big improvement. Ordered a second Hi-Lo switch for a 2nd sump pump we have in the basement.

Hc6000 - Electronic Hi-lo Pump Switch
I was seeking a solution for a sump pump operation at a condo complex in one of the basements of one of the buildings. The pump was constantly operating every minute and a half to three minutes. It would run for five to seven seconds and shut off and start all over. Evidently, the ground underneath has some water issues that are beyond our control. I was trying to prevent a pump failure and reduce the amount of electricity being used by this circumstance. I researched Hydro Check and found the... more

Great So Far..
I bought two of these to replace a pair of (unreliable) foam type level switches. These new switches were very easy to install and so far have performed flawlessly The built-in alarms are not very loud but they're a nice feature to have.

In spite of the initial high cost of these switches, if they save my basement from another flood, it will be money well-spent..

Great Product!
Bought one six months ago ... Just got around to installing today ...Nothing to it ...Works perfectly ..Tied it to discharge pipe in sump pit ...filled pit with water to test ...Worked like a charm ..Will be ordering another unit..as I have two pumps...Should pay for itself..Pump switches will not wear out..longer run times ...and of course piece of mind..Floats do get stuck ..then you end up with a flood.

Great Product If You Need Your Sump Pump To Work
I bought the first one of these (I have two, one on my primary, and one on my secondary pumps), five years ago after a pump I had burned itself out when the float got stuck in the on position with no water in the hole. I bought it because of the "no moving parts" reliability. That has worked out - the thing is reliable and consistent.

Last week it showed off another of its features. When cycling on, the switch started beeping throughout the pump run. It was indicating... more
