When they die, it appears some internal *water* connection goes bad, and water floods the device, shorting out the electrical connections, and flooding your cabinet/bathroom. The pump is definitely powerful, and does the job, when it is still working. But Mr Lund is obviously needs to work on durability. He sells these things based on features, a VERY strong web presence, and the 5 yr warranty. However, getting an RMA from them is a pain (they never respond), and the 5 yr warranty is *pro-rated*.
Next i will try a Taco or a MetLund (which uses a Taco pump). They don't have anywhere near the power, but they hook up on the OTHER side of the shut-off valve from the chilipepper, so they don't need to fight such a small valve, and thus don't need as much power.
Chapter 3: Manufacturer says unit is kaput if the body is full of water -- I don't need to send it back -- they will send me the "new" model, CP2011, shipping today. The new model is reportedly based on their research and customer feedback and experience with the prior CP6000 unit. So far, I have nothing to complain about customer service -- all has gone well with their response.
This is a follow-up after owning the unit for 8 months. It wouldn't turn on today -- checked and it had tripped the ground fault interrupter circuit in the electrical outlet where it was plugged in. It continued to trip the circuit when trying to turn on again. Looked under the bathroom sink where Chilipepper was installed -- water on floor. Discovered that it was leaking water through the seams in the plastic body of the unit -- not leaking at the plumbing connections. After an email to Chilipepper Sales, I had a response back within an hour or so -- advised me to remove and ship to them (at my expense) -- they would inspect it for problems and, if defective, send me a new one.Read more ›
If it would work always like this, this pump definitely deserves five stars. Unfortunately with all the negative reviews, one gets the sense that this is a well designed product but very poorly manufactured. For me, I don't mind paying extra for this wonderful device if it is manufactured under better quality control.
I am going to raise it to a 4-star for right now.
I hope that my unit will stay working for years to come.
Installation was easy. I just went to Home Depot and learned about "compression" vs. "Pipethread" fittings on plumbing parts. Spent about $20 on accessories.
I installed and was very very pleased with it while it worked. But after two days, I excitedly tried showing it to a friend. Pushing the red button started the motor for only a short second. It usually runs for about 30 seconds until the motor senses the hot water and shuts off). I repeated this several times. The faucet water was cold. So that there was no way that it stops because there was already hot water in the pipe. I thought "the thermometer in the pump could be defective".
The next day I took off the chilipepper from the plumbing and drained out all the water. Then I re-installed it. This time, to my initial delight, the motor ran. But I never pushed the button to activate it! The motor would never shut off.Read more ›
