Owner feedback


Some consumers have mentioned problems with the battery not holding a charger, but this is generally due to improper maintenance or attaching the wrong one. It is important to keep the battery connected to the charger even when the pump is not in use, and to periodically add distilled water to the box. When the battery is maintained most consumers report that the sump pump is functioning properly.
