My water softener wash tube discharges into my sump pit. Will the Storm Pro BA Series Pump hold up to the salt water in the pit?
Jim T 
from Ohio 
January 29, 2014
Answer
The StormPro pumps are actually one of the few pumps that we offer that are designed for saltwater, so you should be fine!

What does min. sump basin size mean?
John D 
from Massachusetts 
February 02, 2013
Answer
The minimum sump basin size relates to the minimum size of your sump basin or pit, that a specific pump will safely operate in. Any pump needs a certain amount of space due to "on/off" levels, cooling factors and cycling that the pump is designed for. Most pumps will require a standard size basin of 18" wide by 24" deep but some will also operate in smaller basins. You want to pay very close attention to these requirements as they will insure a longer pump life.

I would like to know how many watts a 1/3 or 1/2 hp sump pump has, because i was think of buying a portable generator in case the power goes off.
Tom B. 
from New York 
September 03, 2012
Answer
That really depends on the pump. Some are more efficient than others. For example, the 1/3HP Basement Watchdog model BW1033 has a running amp rating of 3.5 and a starting amp rating of 7. When you figure the watts by the formula of amps times volts equals watts ( A X V = W), you get 420 running watts and 840 starting watts. But when you look at the Zoeller 1/3HP model M53, that pump has a running amp rating of 9.6 and a starting amp rating of 29.6 or 1152 running watts and 3552 starting watts.
+
I understand that the BA-33M has a switch differential of 6-1/2 inches. Can I modify it with a longer rod to increase that differential and thus further cycling?
Ben 
from Ohio 
June 27, 2012
Answer
Unfortunately, there is no way to modify that switch. If you are looking for a way to increase the run time of the pump, you might consider changing to a TETHER float or the Pro Series Ultimate Sensor Pump Controller System model USC3.

I don't know which model sump pump to purchase or which model is appropriate for my home. How do I go about doing that?
Harry  
from Illinois 
May 20, 2012
Answer
If you are replacing a sump pump and the pump has performed well for you in the past, it's best to replace it with a pump that matches the horsepower and/or gallons per hour rating as close as possible. If that information is unknown and the original pump's brand and model number is still visible on the pump, you can always look it up on the internet or call us for more help. If no information is available, an average sized home in a typical water table can usually use a 1/3HP - 1/2HP sump pump. Submersible sump pumps are more popular and will usually run quieter and last longer than pedestal sump pumps. You can also click HERE for more information on how to pick the perfect sump pump.
If you have additional questions, please let me know or give me a call.

Is stormpro and sumpro made by the same company? Is your site says not made in the USA for stormpro, where is it made?
Dan 
from Indiana 
May 05, 2012
Answer
Yes, StormPro and SUMPRO are made by the same company and are probably considered one of the better quality brands that we offer. And like many of the pumps available, they are manucatured in China.
+
When setting the switch off point, how much of the pump (Storm Pro 33) should remain permanently submerged?
Ted 
from Indiana 
April 17, 2012
Answer
For a typical sump application, you should try to keep the bottom portion of the pump submerged at all times. With this switch having a 6 1/2" differential, even if you set the switch at a minimal height, you will have water in the bottom portion of your basin on a regular basis, which is normal. For a continuous duty applications, the pump MUST always be at least 3/4 submerged at all times.
+
Can it pump water 16 feet high?
Paul 
from Ohio 
February 17, 2012
Answer
Yes, the StormPro model BA-33M actually has the capacity to pump to a maximum of 25 feet.

Re: the Storm Pro BA-33M 1/3 HP. Ok, I cannot visualize the set up for this pump. It looks like the cord goes under water and that does not look safe at all for a sump pump! I have a tub to line the hole it goes into and do you put both units under water? Or below the floor line and eventual water?
Richard Neva  
from New York 
January 16, 2012
Answer
The pump will sit on a level surface on the bottom of your basin and the vertical float switch will clamp onto your discharge pipe at the height you determine. The vertical float switch does have a differential of 6 1/2". The power cord for the vertical float switch will be plugged into your 120 volt, 15 amp GFCI rated dedicated circuit. Please note that the plug for the vertical float switch is a "piggyback" style plug, just like the plugs on Christmas tree lights that allow you to "string" multiple lines together. The power cord from the pump will then be plugged into the back of the plug from the vertical float switch. The only portion of the cords that are in contact with any water is the portion that is connected to the pump and switch which is normal.
+
Are pump and switch available with 15' or 20' cords?
Tim Walsh 
from California 
December 21, 2011
Answer
The float switch is available with a 20 foot cord for $64.99 but there is no option for the pump. Another option would be the 1/2HP model BA-50M that comes with a standard 20 foot cord on both the pump and switch.
+
I was concerned that as often as our pump works I should have a replacement pump in case the primary fails and an alarm if the power goes out. i was thinking of a pump that is more quiet and then using our old one as a backup. i'm not sure if I like the idea of a battery backup. any suggestions?
Ells Snyder 
from Maryland 
December 10, 2011
Answer
A backup is never a bad idea as long as you're home when and if "the" event takes place. A BATTERY BACKUP System would be good insurance and would help ease your fears of having some pumping capability should you be away from home when a severe storm hits. Most systems will give you approximately 7 hours of continuous runtime or 24 - 48 hours of non-continuous runtime. The other consideration would be a STANDBY GENERATOR. This option would also give you peace of mind for your pump, refrigerator, heating or cooling, garage door and security system.

I recently purchased a BA-33 sump pump. Is it necessary to drill a hole in the bottom of the discharge pipe? Also how do I install the switch on the discharge pipe to maximize the run cycle? Is it adjustable? Finally- is it OK to go from 1 1/2" ABS pipe comming out of the discharge fitting to 1 1/4" id black plastic where it exits the house [about 7' above the pump] The 1 1/4" black plastic carries the water along and away from the foundation with a steady pitch for approx 30'.
John Szafranski 
from Massachusetts 
October 29, 2011
Answer
It's always recommended to drill the "weep" hole approximately 4" above the base of the discharge to help prevent air lock. The vertical switch is adjustable in that it actually clamps onto the discharge pipe at any height you wish. The differential on that switch is 6 1/2" and that is not adjustable. As for reducing the discharge from 1 1/2" to 1 1/4", that should not be a problem. You will however realixe a slight loss in your gallons per hour (GPH) rating.

I recently purchased Stormpro BA-33M. I did not get the check valve. I picked up a check valve at a local plumbing outlet. The pump would not work at all with the valve installed, i have installed several of these and was careful to install the valve with the direction correct. I installed the pump without the check valve and it seems to work fine. Will this affect the life of the pump, or cause any problems? It has about a 10 ft. vertical lift and simply drains off into a ditch. Thanks.
Mark Ramsey 
from Tennessee 
June 21, 2011
Answer
Have you double checked the following possible causes of your problem?

● Check valve is installed backwards.
Arrow on valve should point in direction of flow.(Usually pointing up)
● Discharge shut-off valve (if used) may be closed.
● Impeller or volute openings are fully or partially clogged.
Remove pump and clean.
● Pump is air-locked. Start and stop several times by plugging and unplugging cord. Check
for clogged vent hole in pump case. Drill a 1/8”inch hole into PVC Pipe 4” inches above the pumps discharge.
● Inlet holes in pump base are clogged. Remove pump and clean the openings.
● Vertical pumping distance is too high. Reduce distance or change the discharge fittings of the pump.

If you're sure none of these possibilities are causing the problem, I would suggest calling StormPro tech support at (800) 323-1665 x231 for further assistance.

Jim, Researching sump pumps and leaning towards the purchase of a StormPro BA33 with adjustable height switch. (good reviews) My question is can I purchase an additional switch for my secondary pump? I'm not sure what the model number is and the cost involved. Also, during my wet season, this pump will actuate every couple of minutes. I'm concern over how long the switch lasts! What do you recomend? Several of my pumps have failed due to the switch! Thank you in advance for your help. Joe
Joe Muscatello 
from Connecticut 
June 06, 2011
Answer
If your secondary pump utilizes a "piggyback" style float switch, then you could replace the switch with no problem. Click HERE for a listing of switches that we offer.

It is very typical for a switch to fail before the actual pump however, sometimes it's just a case of debris in your sump basin getting lodged in your switch. If you determine the switch to be bad, it's then just a matter of locating the correct switch. If the switch is built into the housing of the pump, you will need to contact the manufacturer of the pump and provide the model numper of your pump to see if the switch is available and how involved the replacement would be.

Hi Jim, I just bought a StomPro BA 33M sump pump.I would like for it to go "ON"at 9 or 9.5 inches.Where on the discharge pipe "height" in relation to the pump body do I attach adjustable switch? At contact pt with float at top,midway of pump body? Thanks so much,Marvin
Marvin Yowe 
from New York 
May 11, 2011
Answer
Attach your switch to the discharge pipe and set it so the bottom of the vertical float rod housing is at 9 or 9 1/2" from the base of your sump basin. As the float rises, once it reaches the top of the float rod, the pump will switch on.
+
Hello Jim, I have an old Zoeller sump pump that does not seem to be able to keep up with demand (possibly overheating). I have an 18" diameter by 18" deep hole and I would estimate during peak rain periods a need for a pump to remove up to 36 gallons per minute. This pump seems to be able to do 50 gallons per minute. Is the 1/3 HP StormPro a good choice or should I go to the Simer 3995 I'm considering? I can't determine the current horsepower on my Zoeller...
David Marshall 
from Indiana 
April 22, 2011
Answer
Either pump will do the job for you as they are both rated for continuous duty and will not overheat, however, you should try to match the GPH and/or HP of your current pump as best you can. Installing a pump that's too powerful will only result in the pump cycling too often and shortening the life of the pump.
+
Hi Jim i have a single sump pump that is only in a 2x4 foot rectangle that they left out of the concrete when they built my house . it is open to the air and water is always about 6 inches below the surface. I have a single sump in there now that keeps it from entering the basement and there is a low spot that has another pump that sits on the surface and routes its water to the primary. I wanted to enclose the pump and also get something powerful enough to keep that water lever down. i also donot want to be fighting the water table if that is the issue. ( it is very high) what kind of pump , enclosure , and system would you recommend...thank you , Jason
Jason Craig 
from Massachusetts 
April 17, 2011
Answer
Typically, I would recommend a Zoeller or ION 1/3 HP submersible pump and have it installed in a Sump Basin and include the Cover. Due to the high water table, you might check with a local plumber to verify if a 1/3HP would be sufficient.
+
Jim, To take advantage of a deep sump pit and reduce the number of run cycles. Which pump would you recommend that has the greatest on/off differential? Thanks, Dan
Dan Fenstermaker 
from Minnesota 
April 05, 2011
Answer
Most pumps that include a tether switch tend to have a longer run or pump time which will reduce the number of run cycles. The tether switches can also be adjusted to lenghten or shorten the pumping time or differential.

i have a truck well that gets water, leaves and a small amount of other junk. i am in florida and the wet season can cause a mess i need a heavy duty pump
F. T. ESPOSITO 
from Florida

Answer
I would suggest a sewage pump, most likley a 1/2HP. It would handle the leaves and small debris up to 2 inches.

Jim, What is considered continuous duty applications. My present pump can be on in as little as 1 min intervals. Has operated for several years as such. A True Value Master Mechanic pump. Afraid will one day quit. Reason for shopping for replacement.
Roger L Kopshina Sr 
from Pennsylvania 
March 06, 2011
Answer
A continous duty rated pump is exactly what the name implies. The pump is capable of running continously, non stop, as the StormPro pump will do. If you need, you can unplug the piggyback switch and plug the pump directly into your outlet in the case you have an emense amount of water to discharge. Most pumps will cycle on and off in a normal operating process.
+
How does the sump pump connect to the independent float switch, Does the pump plug into the switch and the switch plugs into the power?
Mark 
from New Jersey 
February 09, 2011
Answer
Yes, most external float switches utilize this design. It's consider a "Piggyback" style plug. Very similar to how sets of Christmas lights connect to each other.
+
Would this pump be suitable for a 12' x 12' basement?
Cody Dix 
from Ohio 
January 10, 2011
Answer
The interior dimensions of a basement aren't a major factor in sizing a sump pump correctly.

Monitoring your current pump during normal operation and during a storm can give you a better idea of what size pump you would need.
+
Hi Jim. I know the float can be attached to discharge line. I'm wondering what the maximum On/Off points are. Looking to figure out how many inches of water will be pumped out per cycle. Thanks.
Charlie 
from New York 
January 05, 2011
Answer
The on/off differential for the float switch is about 6.5".
