So fast forward a few days and the pump arrived, well packed. Although the HB-1000 was made of all plastic, it felt very substantial in my hands so the grade of plastic seemed high. I began installation, as a experienced do it yourselfer, it took me about an hour and a half to neatly complete the install.
When I finished the installation of the HB-1000, I cut power to my primary and backup conventional sump pumps to run tests on the new pump. I grabbed the garden hose and filled my sump pit until the water level rose to trigger the new HB-1000.
I was totally blown away when the HB-1000 kicked on, I was expecting a wimpy sound to come from the pump and it to slowly sip water from my pit. Instead, I hear a mean growl and the water level in the pit rapidly begins dropping until the pit was drained and the pump turned off.
I am very pleasantly surprised, this pump can easily take the place of my current battery backup pump, I will sleep very soundly knowing it is there, especially when I am away from home.
I highly recommend this pump. My advice is to take your time and plan your installation from start to finish before starting. Think about where you want the water source to come in to the pump, where you want the discharge pipe to exit the house and how you want to run the suction pipe to the pit. Then pickup the supplies and tools you will need. If you pre-plan the installation, it will not only go smoother, but you will be much happier with the end result. If you hire a plumber, a typical install should not take more than 1.5 hours.
4/19/11 update: Pump is still working great! The switch on my main pump has been acting up, so the backup pump is getting more use than I expected.
8/2/11 update: We have experienced 3 power outages in the last month. In each case the water-powered pump worked great until I got my generator running. The only issue I am having, and it's not really with the pump itself, is that I get a fairly loud water hammer noise when the pump turns off. But that is not the fault of the pump - I should have installed a better water hammer arrester.
7/20/12 update: Have had 3 more power outages over the last year, and every time the pump has worked great. I have decided that the water hammer is a feature, not a problem, since I am immediately alerted that the main pump has failed and that the backup pump is doing its job. :)
6/19/13 update: Continue to be very satisfied - still working great. Have had a couple power outages over the last year and it worked fine. Also accidentally knocked the plug out for my main pump recently and the the backup pump kicked in and alerted me to the issue due to the water hammer "feature".
Although our house (which is only about 5 years old) is elevated from the street about 8 feet, the farm field behind us rises and drains into a large storm sewer behind our house in the neighbors yard. In addition, both of our neighbor's houses sit above our house. So even though we're not the low point of the neighborhood we're in the drain path. Our builder didn't do such a good job planning for this and our house really could have been built about a foot higher than it currently sits. But we did have someone come in with a bobcat and slope our ground around the house. So short of a small pool area on the back of the house we now have pretty good drainage. But our sump pump still eventually collects quite a bit of ground water during a good rain. Because of this, I installed a batter powered back up sump pump.
First, let me explain how I got to where I am now with my sump pumps. On Good Friday 2011 in our area we had massive, massive storms. Although we didn't have any tornado damage we had a loss of power for a couple of hours. Along with the tornadoes we we had an unprecedented amount of rainfall within a short period of time. This caused the storm sewers to back up, essentially pushing water towards our house and eventually into our sump. With the power being out and the loss of our sump pump I was relying on the battery backup pump to keep us dry. Unfortunately the switch was bad and the battery backup failed. That was probably irrelevant as the battery backup pumps have a ridiculously low flow rate.
That brings us to the BasePump water powered backup pump.Read more ›
