Did this video help you?

Slick Wally: You need to quit smoking dude

Pete Bennington: So looks like the junk one coming out is a Zoeller, why not show what happen to it? are you going to take it home change the switch and resell it? Then change the customer a bunch of money for replacing everything?

Vadym Shatov: I think you need to take some time and go to woodprix website to learn how to make it.

Milosz Ostrow: "Check valves do go bad." Yeah, tell me about it. A week ago we had to pump over 7,000 gallons of water out of a basement after a cheap Ace Hardware plastic body check valve costing less than $12 separated into two pieces, allowing the pedestal pump to circulate water uselessly, wasting electricity, until the water level rose enough to short the 120 VAC in the motor, tripping the circuit breaker.

Electone_Guy: My Zoeller M98 just burned out after only 5 years (and it's not the switch). So much for Zoeller quality...

Rodj: How To Sump Pump Install, DIY, Secret is Don't use a crappy pump(Zoeller's) but instead a Hydromatic or Nexgen Pumps sump pumps

inti gomez: I just got two zoeller pumps with battery back up for $1,800...hope they work ...

mhaddadi: WHat is the minimum water level required for pump to start.?

NOpcBS: It seems that there are NO high quality and reliable sump pumps these days. Zoellers have mechanical switch issues FAR too often...and there seem to be no reliable and long lasting dual switches to use with their floatless pumps either. A market someone could take charge of if they'd simply create a complete and high quality pump system!

dan craver: Zoeller pumps are notorious for switch problems. I wouldn't have one for free.

carl engel: I'm on my fourth pump in 10 years

offplanetevent: Rotten apple. useless video.

Frosty Hengewadder: This video is dumb, try making a video of you actually installing one not talking for 7 minutes

femtoman2357: Thanks for the tip about the weep hole in the body of the pump. This insures that the impeller always has prime and the pump will not airlock. For this reason I did not drill a hole in the outlet pipe and my pump has never airlocked. Again, thanks for the tip and thank you Zoeller!

Tom D: Maybe I misread the install instructions on my M98 pump.  It said when using a unicheck is installed. Not sure what a Unicheck is. (Check Valve maybe?) a 3/16 dia hole in the discharge line even with the top of the pump.  I am thinking this is for air to escape. If the float switch goes bad cant you just use another switch that goes on and off and the pump can plug into that switch?

Junior Garcia: you just put the pump on the ground or you need to drill screws so the sump pump wont go wondering?

Junior Garcia: does a ump pump not being use should be no water in it?
i open the lid and i see my sump pump flooded with water.

Sylvain Mainville: Liberty 280 for me.

Pro1er: I have t agree with others here, this pump is a turd. The switch is way under specced for the pump and will burn out in a few years. Also, the short throw of the float causes the pump to cycle more than necessary, putting even more stress on the switch. Even Zoeller says that the switch should be replaced every year. Huh?

Read the reviews on Amazon, then go and buy a quality product.

Derek Y: Can you replace the float switches or would you have to purchase a whole new pump.
