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.

concretedavey: Zoeller pumps are the best. The oil inside of submersible pumps is mineral oil. Couple of things. First rather than making the first section of pipe so short I like to run it so that it extends above the sump liner. Then the no hub and then the check valve. Also on the male adapter use never seize or a thread sealant so that it's easy to remove years later. 

Frank Matturri: I agree with some of the comments below-you do need a vent hole, not only the manual tells you but I've spoken to Zoeller engineers. Also, with any kind of depth of your sump & a high water table, the pump will be running all the time since the float goes on so early and shuts off so soon. You will need a good quality separate float and just tie up the stock Zoeller float switch. I have had Zoeller float switches burn out very quickly.If this guy had them last that long they must have been installations with very little water. Zoeller pumps do pump water like crazy though. 

Scotty Hayden: I agree. Separate switch is the only way to go...

Anthony Bonaventura: I've replaced dozens of these. Normally bad float switches. 

mightythor: there is no way you didn't have to replace 1 speller pump in 27 years unless by chance you only put in 1 and didn't use it. They're not that good

hopcup1: its not near the best pump... i installed tons of those my self.. and the die to easy... they r not worth for the price....

gatekeeper2012: any one on what type of oil goes inside the motor????

rustyme1122: Agree the switch is more likely to fail than the pump itself. I personally prefer the Zoeller pump without switch, and use a Rhombus vertical master float switch. Zoeller switches are rated 100,000 cycles. Vertical master is 250,000. Problem I find with all submersible pumps is lack of depth adjustment. They all only pump about 6 to 8 inches of water level. I was able to modify the vertical master and now get about a full 12" of pump down.

hopcup1: sorry.. u been doin this 27 years ? y would u put the no hub down all the way into the pit? so its harder to work on??.... u keep all ur connections above the pit so its easy to get to and work on.......... sorry but lousy video.. somthing a handy man would do

mightythor: zoeller pumps are the best but their switches are THE worst. Listen to rustyme112. Get a separate switch. I have collected over 20 pumps that people have thrown out thinking they were shot but its only the switch.my plumber friend gives them to me and I fix the switches

Joshua Pruden: Chuck You are right about the Zoeller pumps! I have one in my house along with a zoeller check valve. They are old and a little rusty but it still works!! Zoeller rocks!

Mark Vizer: Current sump pump is attached to 1 1/4 PVC for some reason.Any problem with that? Lift from floor is about 4' and sump is 2' deep. There is no anti-backflow valve either. Where should this be installed in relationship to floor?

rustyme1122: Yes Zoeller pumps are top quality and the only pump I use in my pit. However, you mentioned a vent hole in the discharge pipe is not needed as the vent hole in the pump cavity is sufficient. NOT TRUE! A hole in the discharge pipe below the check valve is ALSO needed. Read the Zoeller manual. I use a tee with a 1/2 branch and plug the branch, then drill a 1/8 in hole in the bottom of the branch so the stream shoots straight down. I did see an air lock once without the second vent hole.

TooL KikS: I had a zoeller when I moved into my house, 1/2 HP, the float switch started to stick. I upgraded to Storm Pro sump pumps and battery backup. zIts 1/3 hp but pumps more water than the zoeller...at only 4.5 amps. I couldnt run the zoeller on a 2000 watt generator, power hog.

tc1uscg: Though the pump may be the best, how about the float unit? I understand thats the weak spot of most pumps. I currently have a Ridgid 1/2 hourse but replacing it with a 1hp Coleman. Last time I replaced the pump, I cleaned out the discharge pipe up to where it leaves the house. Lots of buildup. I'm concerned it could have more build up from the house to the storm drain. Is there a good way, ie. using a snake, to clean out the rest of the pipe?

notta3d: Nice video. Thank you.

appledrains: Hey Mark.. Inch and a quarter pipe is okay. The check valve should be installed where is the access on the rise. Usually just above the pump float.. Or just above the floor

mightythor: correction "zoeller " I hate auto spell check
