Q: HI.

Comparing this to the Liberty combo. Liberty states it has solid handling. My washing machine drains into my sumo pit so that includes lint from clothes...can this pump handle that? And also, what battery choices are recommended for back up?

by Dave from Illinois on July 04, 2016

A: Dave,
While most sump pumps will work, they are not designed to handle the chemicals associated with laundry detergents and bleach and as such, a better option might be to consider draining this water to a LAUNDRY/DRAIN PUMP SYSTEM instead.

As for the pump you were looking at, How high vertically & How far horizontally are you pumping?
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Can I use a maintenance-free marine battery with this system?
by Dan C from Illinois on February 02, 2016

A: Yes, but you would need to connect the water sensor from the controller, to the positive terminal of the battery.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Are the switches adjustable so I can set the water height for them to turn on? Does the float turn off the pump or does it run for a set period of time?
by Ken from Michigan on November 19, 2014

A: The float switches can be adjusted and moved higher or lower, though you may need to get a bit creative to achieve this due to the actual design of the piping on this system. The float switches are timer based. The primary pump will operate for about 10 seconds once the float is raised and drops back to it's original position. The backup pump will operate for about 25 seconds once the float is raised and drops back to it's original position.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Jim
I recently purchased this pump Unfortunately after a heavy rain with both pumps running I still had an overflow. Would running separate 1.5 discharge lines for each pump increase the GPH capability? Seems like the Y in the lines might create a bottle neck?

by Rich K from Minnesota on July 26, 2014

A: While the initial setup and installation of combination systems such as the PHCC Pro Series PS-C33, does make for an easier installation, running a separate discharge for each pump will definitely help to provide for each pump's true pumping capacity in cases where both pumps need to operate at the same time.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Jim - Any issue wth installing a redundant check valve on the discharge pipe prior to connection to the unit...in case one of the valves in the unit fails? Would it impede flow in any way on a 10' lift?
by Matt P from Indiana on June 02, 2014

A: You would realize some additional friction loss and a slight reduction in GPH. Generally, you should have one check valve installed for each pump in your system. And those check valves should be replaced whenever you replace your pump.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Hi Jim, thanks for answering my questions about the PS-C33. It sounds like a great combination pump! One thing Im concerned about is surge protection, as we get a lot of storms in Minnesota. Do you know what type of surge protector is recommended for this unit?
Thanks, Terry

by Terry J from Minnesota on February 11, 2014

A: Thank you for your interest in Sump Pumps Direct. For all the PHCC Pro Series units, we recommend around 2000 Joules or higher surge protection.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Jim, why would you recommend this combo as "Better" over the "Good" Basement Watchdog 1/2 HP unit when the other unit has more power in the primary and backup pumps? I'm considering a combo unit and would love to hear your thoughts.
by Donato M from Virginia on November 09, 2012

A: If you're looking for a heavier duty system, the Pro Series PS-C33 is actually a contractor grade system compared to the Basement Watchdog BW4000.

The main difference between the two is:
1. The BW4000 will handle 3200GPH at 10 feet for the primary pump and 1730GPH at 10 feet for the battery backup. The PS-C33 will handle 3000GPH for the primary and 2400GPH for the battery backup system. A bit less capacity on the primary than the BW4000 but considerably more capacity on the backup pump.

2. The PS-C33 will accept 2 batteries connected in parallel to double the run time. The BW4000 does not give you this option.

by Jim, Product Expert
Q: how long will this battery run with loss of power.
by Mark from Ohio on August 31, 2012

A: When using the recommended Basement Watchdog battery, you should get approximately 8 hours of continuous run time and 24-36 hours of non-continuous run time on a full charge. Please note however, that these ratings are based on a new battery and will diminish over time and cycles the battery has used. By adding a 2nd battery, you can double that run time to 16 continuous and 48-72 non-continuous.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: PS-C33:
Will it fit in a 12" dia sump pit?
Can I use a sealed battery?
Thanks.

by Gregg Larson from Washington on July 29, 2011

A: The Pro Series Pair of Pumps combination system is compact and will fit in a sump pit as small as 12 wide. It measures 23 inches from the bottom of the pump stand to the top of the Yconnector where it will be attached to the discharge pipe.
The battery fluid sensor is designed to fit the Pro Series Standby batteries. Measuring the battery fluid is one of the most important features of the system, since about 80% of backup sump pump failures are the result of a battery that has dried out. If this is difficult to maintain for you, you can also use a maintenance free battery with this system.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: what type of switch does the backup pump in the pro seriespsc33 use? Is the obove system a very good system? I don't need a wet basement when returning home. Jim
by Jim Follon from Minnesota on June 21, 2011

A: Each pump on this system utilizes a dual float switch.

The dual float switch on the primary pump contains two large floating rings enclosed within a protective cage. Water will lift the bottom float by , which will activate the pump. If for any reason the lower float does not activate the pump, the water will rise to the second float, and it will activate the pump. As the pump
evacuates the water from the pit, the floats will drop. The pump will run for an additional 10 seconds to extend the cycle after the lower float drops. The blue controller for the primary pump powers this switch.

During a power outage, or when more water is entering the sump than the primary pump can handle, the backup pump will automatically begin pumping. It also has a dual float switch, so if one float fails to activate the pump, the second float will activate the pump as soon as the water reaches that level. As the water
recedes below the float switch, a timer in the control unit will run the pump an additional 25 seconds to empty the pit.

This is probably one of the better high output combo systems that we carry and I would highly recommend it.

Power Equipment Direct Recommended

If the Basement Watchdog 1/2HP model BW4000, or some of the smaller combination systems that we offer doesn't quite make the cut for you as far as pumping capacity, this system will fill the void. The primary pump offers a very capable 3000GPH and the battery backup pump will handle 2400GPH at a 10 foot head. Not bad for a system at this price! Besides the Pro Series' exclusive monitoring system that "watches" over the battery functions and detects irregularities, pinpoints problems... more

Excellent Choice
I did a lot of research and selected this product because of my volume requirements. Instillation went smoothly and was very easy. Primary pump and back up pump work great. Alarms are a plus so I know when the back up pump has engaged or whether there is a problem. Highly recommended.
Pros: Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Reliable

2 Year Review
I bought this pump system two years ago. My initial review was excellent. Did a second review after I discovered the thing had bad check valves. Ended up having to having to install aftermarket check valves after the 2nd set PHCC sent me were bad also! The other issue Im having is that whenever I have moderate to heavy rain fall, debris from the drain tile will fall into the basin and get caught up in the float switch cage. This causes the float to get caught up and not activate the primary.... more
Pros: Quiet, Features, Easy To Use
Cons: Unreliable, Debris Will Get Caught Between The Float And Float Switch Cage
Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Rob,
Thank you for both your initial and updated review. Debris can sometimes cause problems with the sump pump system, including the check valves and float switches. In environments that have a lot of debris, we recommend cleaning the sump pit routinely. You can use a wet vac or something similar to accomplish this. In some severe cases it may be necessary to clean the sump several times a year to keep the debris from clogging the pump, float switch or check valves. I would recommend contacting our service team for further information. You can reach us at 800-991-0466 option 3 Monday through Friday 9-5 central time.

Defective Backup Pump
Like many other reviewers, I received a defective product. The backup pump was spraying water from the top. Glentronic's customer service was fast, they acknowledged the problem and sent me a replacement pump with next day delivery. However, they only sent the backup pump, so I had to follow a 24 step process to remove the pump from the rest of the unit and reinstall it.

They should have sent a whole new unit to make it easier to replace. Major inconvenience. I would have returned the whole... more

Best Sump Pumps To Buy!!!
For many years we used pedestal sump pumps and usually changed them once a year to insure that we wouldn't have the problem of a flooded basement. Well low and behold our "Last" pedestal pump failed when we certainly didn't need it to. I wanted to make sure that never happened again. What a pain, about four days of stressed out misery clening our wet basement. After doing a fair share of studying battery back up sump pump systems, we bought our Pro Series pump.

Pretty Pleased With Unit
I was impressed when the unit arrived at my more door within 24 hours of ordering! I've installed it fairly easily. I am also impressed with how quite the unit is. I went with this model because I had gotten an estimate from a plumber who was going to use the same model. I did purchase a marine battery from a local store for the back up, not sure if this was right or not.

I also ran on a 2nd discharge out of the house for the back up pump, instead of the "T" it came with as... more

Great Pump Assembly! Easy Installation.
I was very impressed by the quality of this pump. The installation was very easy and the pump and backup are operating exactly the way they should. I will add that this pump is much quieter when operating than the pump it replaced. I installed with the no-maintenance battery. I am looking forward to years of service from this quality product. And Sump Pumps Direct has the best prices, along with free delivery and also a fast delivery.

Great System
I installed this system 2 years ago when i moved into this house. It has worked well during 3 incidents of big rains and lots of water coming into the sump. I set up the primary/secondary pumps and had enough room for a tertiary pump. I have great peace of mind knowing this system is in place.

Great Sump Pump
I was in need of a combination sump pump and had a unique issue that I was trying to solve. I have a 13" diameter sump well that has a 11 1/2" opening at the top. Most combination pumps will not fit through an 11 1/2" opening. I was pleased to find out that the PS-C33 would actually fit. I had questions about the backup pump and emailed Glentronics directly. They got back to me within 12 hours. I ordered the pump from PED on a Thursday and it arrived on the next Tuesday. I... more
