Superior Craftsmanship
Had a big box 1/3 hp pump for years and my basement was always damp. Did my research online and found this gem. Noticed an immediate difference in the quality of this liberty pump to the big box one. No comparison! The move up to the 1/2 up was all the difference. No more damp floors my basement hasn't been wet since the liberty was installed 3 months ago and we have had some real downpours. I would definitely recommend this pump.
Pros: Quiet, Durable, Exceeded Expectations, Love The Magnetic Switch
Cons: No Cons On This Pump

Good Design
I upgraded to this model from Zoeller 1/3 hp. Big improvement, can handle a heavy rain downpour and pumps strong. I like it because the on and of switches takes a little bit longer to activate or deactivate. Less stress on the motor and switch.
Pros: Quiet, High Quality, Fast, Features
Cons: Expensive

So Far So Good
I replaced my older (and cheaper) sump pump with th model 287 about 4 months ago. I am very happy so far with the performance of this new unit. It is much quieter than the old unit and has a higher discharge flow rate. It appears to be a very well made unit.

Upgrade Liberty 1/3 Hp To 1/2 Hp
My old liberty model 257 1/3 HP pump was still working after 5 years, but it could not keep up with a vast local influx of water from a tremendous downpour. I had a mild overflow in the basement as a result. I wanted to upgrade with an increased GPH output to handle the load next time. This pump is surprisingly quite and has a larger span for on/off switching than the smaller unit. Given my active sump pump circumstances, this was a good upgrade. Combined with my purchase of the Camis... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Quiet, Reliable

First Real Test
I had a professional install a whole house system, French drain and sump pit. He had recommended liberty pumps, I did not find out much about it but what I saw was positive. That was back in January, Now its June and the first storm of the Hurricane season Tropical Storm Andrea approached here in NJ 2013, I was so glad that I had this pump.

It was running all night almost every min or so, as the water levels were going from 4 to 10 inches in the pit that fast. I am very happy with the... more

Great!
Bought this to replace my failing Jim Murray 1/3hp primary pump. This pump is high quality, heavy duty cast iron and is so much quieter than my old pump. We can't even hear it run! The reed switch is unique and seem to be a great feature over the other manufactures.
Made in the USA and came with easy to read instructions. Drains my sump pit in no time and I am extremely happy with the product and the buying experience.
Pros: Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

2nd Pump Works, After 1st Failed
I recently installed a second Liberty 287 pump after the first one failed right out of the box. I installed the first pump a few days before the Spring thaw and it tested fine. Then I came home a few days later to a wet basement...

Sump Pumps Direct swapped me for a new pump without complaint. The second pump has performed like a champ, so maybe the first was just a lemon.The Liberty pump is quiet, seems to pump well, and is supposed to be energy efficient. I guess time will tell how durable... more

Works As Advertised
Ordered a Liberty model 257 that did not perform as advertised. Report problem to customer service who requested I return the pump for a full refund. I then re-ordered the model 287 as a replacement. It works as advertised and I'm very pleased with the Liberty pump and the great customer service provided.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again
