Owner feedback


There have been some complaints about problems with corrosion occurring despite the protective coating and seal. This is usually due to a home having corrosive or hard well water, and is not an issue associated with the construction of the sump pump. If there water cannot be treated this sump pump does tend to last longer under these conditions than some similar models.
