Q: Is this pump capable of handling water softener and washing machine discharge?

if not, which brand/model can?

by Steve K from Wisconsin on June 06, 2013

A: Generally, sump pumps are not recommended for use in a water softener and/or laundry application. Just about all manufacturers will void the warranty if the pump is installed and fails in this application. You might check out our selection of LAUNDRY / DRAIN PUMP SYSTEMS as most of these self contained systems are designed for laundry and water softener applications.

Q: can a theter switch be replaced with afloat switch and what cost differance is there
by Donna from Wisconsin on April 25, 2012

A: As long as the original switch utilizes a "piggyback" style plug and the pump and switch each have their own power cord, you can replace that tether switch with any other "piggyback" style Float Switch. Please note however that most "piggyback" style floats will only work for pumps that are rated at 1/2HP and 15 amps or less.

Heavy Duty Sump Pump
Purchased the Wayne CDT50 sump pump to replace a 5 year old working Flotec unit. The first thing I noticed was the CDT50 was much more heavy duty. I installed the CDT50 and was impressed by the weight and the wisper quite operation. The unit has only been installed for 3 weeks but everything is working as intended.

Sump Pumpin
The pump performed as advertised. The only critical criterion was to make sure there was enough clearance for the float switch so it wouldn't become lodged between the pump body and the wall of the sump. If this condition happened in a "high water", there is the possibility of the pump burning itself out, unless the overload switch was triggered. The main thing is: check the clearance for peace of mind.
