Well after a little more than a year the Switch Genius has failed. The pump no longer shuts off, it just keeps running with a short break after about 20 seconds then resumes.
Obviously, I can't recommend a sump pump that fails so quickly. After digging out the instructions, they do state that you need to keep the surface of the Switch Genius water sensor clean and that a dirty sensor could cause what happened to mine. Mine is pretty scaled at this point and I can't clean it completely without damaging the surface. The instructions do not indicate how often it should be cleaned.
So had I cleaned the sensor surface every couple months I suppose it may still work fine. But you shouldn't have to do that on a sump pump.
And it has also gotten a lot louder over time, and I don't know why that would be unless something else is failing or worn. My old Zoeller which I kept as a backup is much quieter than the Wayne now.
It's hard to do a review on this because as we all know, one of the most important features of a sump pump is its reliability, and I simply haven't had it long enough to know that. So keep that in mind as you read this.
This pump is very quiet and powerful. I can just barely hear it run when standing right over the sump pit. My old Zoeller pump could be heard throughout the house. The Switch Genius works fine, and hopefully will eliminate the problem I had with my old pump of the float getting stuck.
The Switch Genius has its own power cord with a receptacle on the back of the plug, and the sump power then plugs into that. The switch receptacle is then what controls power to the sump.Read more ›
It's now Sept 2011 and the pump is still working great. Just keep in mind that you have to clean the electronic switch periodically or the pump won't turn on and off properly.

We have had no trouble for 3 years. Then we got up this morning and the circuit breaker to the pump had flipped. Called an electrician and he said the switch had shorted out.Published on March 10, 2013 by CAPRDN
