Q: Jim,

The website says the pump is adaptable to 2" piping systems....where do you recommend making the transition form 1.25 discharge to 2", below the basin cover or above it.?? If below the basin cover, should the transition be immediate so that the 3/16" weep hole is drilled in 2" pipe ?

by Matt from Virginia on December 30, 2014

A: The Zoeller Shark model BN800 actually includes a 1-1/2" to 2" male adapter, so you should use it to make the adaption at the pump. As you suggest, this also allows for the weep hole to be drilled in the 2" pipe.

Q: How does the zoeer shark compare to other zoeller grinder pumps?
by Cathy from Delaware on December 16, 2014

A: The Zoeller Shark is very comparable to other Zoeller grinder pumps. It's just rated at a lower horsepower (1/2 HP) with a lower rated pumping capacity (GPH) and head lift than the other models. This grinder pump was designed specifically for the residential market and those that have the constant problems with pumps jamming due to inappropriate items getting introduced to their sewage system.
If you have additional questions, please let me know.
