  8 Questions
Q: How long does a check valve generally last?
by Kevin from Illinois on September 25, 2015

A: Check valves will generally last as long as your pump, so whenever you change out your pump, it's a good idea to change out the check valve as well. All in all, you should get a good 5-7 years minimum on your pump and check valve.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Reading through one of the previous Q&As, you wrote that the check valve is generally installed about 1/2 - 2/3 up the vertical section of the discharge line (assuming 5'-10' vertical section). Why so high? I've seen a few installations where the check valve is right near the base of the line. Don't know which way is better.
by Bruce from Kentucky on March 17, 2015

A: Thank you for your interest in Sump Pumps Direct. While either installation is feasible and will work, my suggestion will reduce stress on the pump when starting due the the extra weight of the water sitting on top of that check valve when it's located at the pump discharge port. In addition, it makes for an easier access point for any servicing that may be needed on your system.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: What are the dimensions of this check valve, both with and without the rubber connection parts installed? The current specifications read only "L x 1-1/2"W x H"
by BN from California on November 18, 2014

A: Total length with the rubber boots is 8-3/4".
Without the rubber boots, approx. 5-3/4"L
The widest part measures 3-5/8"
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: My Zoller pump has a threaded female connector on the body. What am I expected to put between the pump body and the bottom clamp of this check valve?
by BN from California on September 17, 2014

A: Typical installations will include the discharge PVC Sch40 pipe screwed into the pump discharge port and extending approximately 2-3 feet above the sump basin cover. At this point, you could attach the check valve and then complete your discharge configuration. This method would allow for an easier access point for you to service your pump.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: what does the check valve do for a sump pump and do I need one if Im buying a sump pump?
by Van from California on December 20, 2012

A: You definitely want to install a check valve along with your sump pump. The check valve will keep most of the water left in your discharge pipe from returning and emptying back into your sump basin once your pump shuts off, thereby preventing any rapid re-cycling or continuous cycling of your pump.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: is the zoeller 1.5 slip on check valve a full 1.5 inch or 1.25 and 1.5 inch
by Anthony L from New York on December 31, 2011

A: The Zoeller model 30-0180 check valve actually has an inlet and outlet diameter to 1 3/8" but will slip and clamp onto a 1 1/2" diameter PVC discharge pipe.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Where on the line is the best location for the check valve, close to the pump is better?
by CJ from Iowa on February 20, 2011

A: Half way between the bottom of the pit to where it exits the home.

by Jim, Product Expert
Q: How important is having a check valve and how often should they be replaced? We bought a house in 04 and we have had the same check valve since we moved in. Don't know how old it is.
by Jon Nickol from Ohio on January 06, 2011

A: A check valve is extremely important any time water is being lifted vertically. It prevents water from flowing back into the sump pit.

I would suggest listening to the valve when the sump pump is running. If you hear water flowing back down after the pump has cycled, it would be best to replace.

A faulty check valve causes your sump pump to work harder because it keeps pumping a portion of the same water.

To make things simple, if you're replacing your sump pump, replace your check valve too, or at least keep a spare on hand.

Can't Beat A Zoeller!
Zoeller really is the best. I had a brand new Zoeller pedestal back-up sump pump installed BUT with a generic check valve. I didn't think the check valve would be a big deal, but I was wrong.

Last month, I decided I would test the system. After the back-up kicked on and drained the pit, I saw all the water come back down because the check valve was stuck wide open and it was making a bunch of noise. I had to hit it a couple of times to get it to close.

This Zoeller check valve is solid and... more

Bulky Product
Product is so bulky that it prevents the float from working on my Zoeller sump pump.
Thomas Does Not Recommend This Product
Jim, the Sump Pump Expert

Thomas,
For optimal pumping, we always suggest mounting the check valve outside the sump pit. Having the check valve mounted on the discharge or a a few inches above would cause it to catch the float valve.

Unequalled Product. Works Perfectly!
I ordered (2) of these valves one for the main pump and one for the backup. They were delivered on time, installed and I forgot about them. They do their job without any assistance from me. Excellent product.

"I am retired now but when I was Facility Engineer of a large manufacturing plant I used Zoeller pumps exclusively. When a pump failed I replaced it with a Zoeller. I had several Zoeller pumps that have been running for over twenty years. When it was time for new pumps for my home sump pump, I ordered Zoeller. Why take a chance with another brand? Thanks for your service."

Inexpensive Valve
When replacing my sump pump, I chose to replace my check valve. The installation was quick and easy. The one downside is that this pump squeezes down to 1-1/4" valve and I was using a 1-1/2" pipe. Not a huge restriction, but there none the less. I don't see the need for a noise reducing valve, as this one is plenty quiet. (ie. when my older pump ran, the bang from shut off could hear through the entire house (2nd floor even). Now, I can't hear anything unless I'm in the... more

What a difference this and the Zoeller N98 made! Cannot hear the pump running at all compared to our previous setup - we could hear that setup throughout the house.

Right Choice
I have used 3 or 4 different brands of Check Valves in the last 10 yrs which were not as quiet as I would have liked. Since I use Zoeller Sump Pumps and have been happy with their quality I decided to purchase the Zoeller Check Valve and very happy on how quiet the unit is.

I installed this check valve at the same time I installed a Liberty pump. It has worked fine with no problems. It was real easy to install.

Best Check Valve For The Homeowner
Did the research to find this check valve, explained my situation with the pipes hammering, got a response within 24hrs, and decided to buy it. Best move I've made in a while. Don't waste your time with the products they sell at Menards, Home Depot or Lowes. Their check valves are junk and a waste of time and money. I couldn't be happier with the Zoeller Check Valve. This is the only way to go if you have a sump pump in your household.
