An Expensive Disappointment
Why would anyone develop this pump and control it with a float that only allows it to run for 40 seconds?? The biggest weakness of any sump pump is the ON AND OFF SWITCH. My pump runs 288 times each day. It has run 4,608 time since it was professionally installed 16 days ago. I figure my 500 dollar pump will last approximately four months.
Cons: Terrible float

William,
You might want to consider a different type of switch. Tether switches will allow longer run times.

The pump. I have a flood prone basement so having a reliable system is a must. I was willing to pay 2.5 times more than the best rated pump because my existing pump that I inherited with the house is the same model and it would be easier to swap without reconfiguring. Plus this pump has the most GPH compared to other 1HP models. Every little bit helps when in heavy rains both the main the backup are pumping non-stop and barely keeping up and with the inflow. The pump is well built and does the... more

Kirill,
Thank you for your review and feedback of our product. Sorry to hear you feel the instructions were not clear. We spend great attention to detail in our manuals and on our products. You do mention the adjustable timer dial located in the battery compartment of the Deluxe Dual Float controller, this is a great feature and is discussed in the owner’s manual. It can be overlooked. The zip ties that are included with the switch allows you to use alternative means to hang the switch other than a wall mount. They are not intended to mount the cable cords. I will be sure to pass your feedback on to the appropriate people. If you have ever have any questions about your system or need clarification on something please contact our Service team at 800-991-0466 option 3. We are here to help and available from 9-5 Monday through Friday C.T.

Happy!
VERY high quality unit. Built like a battleship with lots of thoughtful features.
A little pricey but worth it to get the mechanism up out of the sump environment.

Sump Pump For 200' Curtain Drain
Placed pump in a collection vault serving a 200' curtain drain. Pump and controls worked well as the manufacturer intended. Durability will take time to ascertain. With a 4ft diameter concrete vault, the pump cycles very quickly. The combination of pump and controller, cycles too quickly, 30 seconds between on and off. This size pump really requires selenoid switch controls with and on float and an off float in order to lengthen the pump cycle.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast
Cons: Pump Cycle Is Too Short Even With Relatively Large Sump Vault

Will,
Thank you for your review we are happy that you are pleased with the S3100 this is a very strong pump. Also We would like to reassure you in knowing that this particular switch can be adjusted to run up to a 45 second cycle. With this adjustment and raising the switch to kick on a little later we believe that you will have a more efficient pump cycle. If you do have further questions please contact us at 800.991.0466 ext. 3 for technical support.
