Installation Step Summary

Step 1: Pump Assembly
  • Apply thread sealant paste or tape to the 1-1/2" male pipe threads on the adapter fitting. Then thread into the pump.
  • Prime and glue both ends of the 1-1/2" pipe and fittings, then press the end with the "vent hole" into the adapter fitting. Next, press the other end into the check valve, making sure the flow arrow points up.
Step 2: Float Switch
  • Use the hose clamp to attach the float around the discharge pipe. The float rod collars are set to allow the maximum amount of travel. They can be adjusted to suit your sump pit.
Step 3: Pump Placement
  • Place the assembled pump in the desired location in your sump pit. Make sure the float does not interfere with the sump pit, wires, or pipes.
Step 4: Power Source

Definition: "Lift"

  • "Lift" is the height the sump water must be pumped before leaving the house.
  • A typical basement is 7 feet tall, plus 2 feet into the sump pit, for a total of 9 feet of lift. Higher lift distance makes the pump work harder, thereby reducing its pumping rate.
