I notice the picture is for SIMER on this product page but the Description says FLOTEC.
We have a clogged broken garage drain that's too expensive to fix right now.
At the same time, that also means construction installing a sump pump below floor level is also too expensive.
Whenever we have a rain storm I would spend several times overnight plugging in a 1/6 hp Sears utility pump and unplugging it. Repeat as necessary.
Sometimes I would set a timer every 15 minutes if there was a particularly heavy down pour just to make sure the water doesn't flood into the adjacent rooms.
Basically a slave to the house.
NOT FOR EVERYONE
Now there is a slight pitch in my garage floor so water will accumulate to about 3/4 inch deep the first 3 1/2 feet. Which makes it convenient and workable for me. If your floor is purely horizontal or pitches the other way, you may want to install a sump pump below floor level.
You just place it on the floor level and plug it in. (Tip: I use one of those net wraps used on Hams to act as a filter for leaves and debris. Cut one end off and set the pump in like it was a cup holder. It certainly operates without it, but if you're buying a ham for Thanksgiving keep it in mind.)
It's a powerful 1/4 hp. I think the noise is par for it's size maybe better, less than I expected. 15' cord. Recommends 14 gauge extension cord (but larger if longer than 25'). Includes garden hose adapter (recommend 3/4" or larger). My set up is a 50' garden hose with the last 20 feet going out a window sill (4 1/2 foot above the ground) and into the back yard.Read more ›
When I read the reviews at Amazon, I was happily surprised to see that others were experiencing the same problem as was I (i.e. the pump was only running for 5 seconds, off for 2-1/2 minutes, over and over and over again). It brought a smile to my face and the relief of knowing that I wasn't going insane (I was tearing my hair out though).
I tried everything in the troubleshooting section of the Owner's manual as well, to no avail. The manual lists possible remedies and causes that are mostly highly unlikely scenarios(power supply, bigger hose, shorter hose, heavier extension cord, blah blah blah . . . really? please . . .)
What the Owner's manual SHOULD say, however, is how downright CHEAP Simer is to not have included a CHECK VALVE (aka BACKFLOW PREVENTER) with the pump. A check valve will prevent the AirLock problem which is the CAUSE for the pump operating in the 5-second burst mode.
I was able to troubleshoot and resolve my problem by placing the hose running downhill from the pump and turning the pump on/off a couple of times, which must have blown out the air and primed the pump. After that, it ran just fine and dandy - cleared out a good 30 gals in a few minutes (would have done it quicker, but my sump is small, so the pump had to "wait" for the sump to fill to threshold level again before it would start).
You see, what happens is that air gets trapped in the garden hose at some point, between the hose tip and the pump. If the hose tip is UPHILL from the pump, the column of water at the hose end forces the trapped air back INTO the pump, and as a result, causes the pump to lose its primed condition.Read more ›
The problem is that the electronics in this beast are so poorly designed and flakey that this pump is not worth money. Don't take my word for it, read the owner's manual carefully and note the warnings about extension cord length and low line voltage in the "corrective actions" section. This is almost a sure sign that the QA testers at the company KNEW they had voltage problems (or things were at least too close) but the company decided "to sell it anyway"!!
Go ahead "contact the power company" (corrective action block 1 line 3) and tell them every electrical appliance/device in my house and on my entire street is working fine but "Smart Geyser" won't work so there must be a problem with the grid...???
Last but not least, !please note! that if you only have the problems I have had with this thing once, rather than the many times that I experienced you will still be in for the greatest (lack) of engineering treats. This pump is completely "automatic", if the faulty electronics fail that's it --there is no override, no switch, no nothing.
The least these guys could have done was provide a simple switch for manual/automatic operation, but that would probably have required some real engineering and a little consideration of the end user.
