Q: Hallo Jim,

CH6000 & CH8000 - witch one to use on a basement sump pump?

Igor.

by Igor from Illinois on February 03, 2016

A: Either one will work on a 120V, 14 max amp rated sump pump. The HC6000 gives you the ability to fine-tune your ON & OFF activation points by providing a sensor for each activation point. The HC8000 provides you with a single sensor that is used to activate your pump. Once activated, the pump will evacuate water till the pump loses prime or starts sucking air.

Q: Can i mount the top electrode facing Up instead of down? so i can get more water.?
by Jeff from New Jersey on March 12, 2015

A: Yes, the sensor could be mounted facing up instead of down without any problems. The sensors are completely sealed, so they can be mounted in any orientation you like.

Perfect
Works like a charm. We had to use a booster pump to keep collapsed drain lines clear till repairs could be made. It was a pain to plug and unplug the pump when needed.

Zip tied the sensor probes to the hose at high and low levels, plugged the pump into the controller and off it went. Kept water under control for over a week. Wish Menards stocked this along with the other HC models. Would have been nice to have this sooner...

Electrical Bill Went Way Up
A friend, a licensed electrician, installed the hi lo pump switch on our sump pump. The next day we left for a month in Europe. All lights, dehumidifier, etc. were turned off during the month we were away. Just the refrigerator and the sump pump remained on. Upon returning, we received an electrical bill for $240!

For one month with nobody home and most things turned off! Perhaps, the fault was with the installation (switch set for too low a water level in the pit). Will reset the... more

Jim, the Sump Pump Expert
Product Expert
John,
I'm sorry to hear of the problem you experienced with your HydroCheck Hi-Lo Pump Switch. If you set both of the sensors low with a very small differential, this could cause the pump to operate frequently. Typically, this switch is used to create a longer pumping cycle. Depending on the pump used, cycle frequency and total head lift, I suppose that it could have resulted in a high electric bill, but I would suggest calling HydroCheck tech support at (877) 225-2124 for additional assistance. If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call me.

Sincerely,
Jim Owiecki

Great Product!
Bought one six months ago ... Just got around to installing today ...Nothing to it ...Works perfectly ..Tied it to discharge pipe in sump pit ...filled pit with water to test ...Worked like a charm ..Will be ordering another unit..as I have two pumps...Should pay for itself..Pump switches will not wear out..longer run times ...and of course piece of mind..Floats do get stuck ..then you end up with a flood.

Correction Of Previous Negative Review
I recently wrote a negative review of this product and wish to correct that opinion. The fault (a high electric bill) was not with the product but with the installation. The previous electrician had set the differential between the lo and high incorrectly and the pump was switching on too frequently. We were away for a month and didn't notice. A second electrician installed the switch correctly and it now works exactly as promised. To make a long story short---an excellent product that... more

Works As Promised
Had a pump that was cycling too often as the float had only 4 inches of movement up and down. The electronic switch allows the sump to fill to a higher level which makes the fill-up take longer and the pump stays on longer...pump ran 3 seconds before, which can burn out the pump, and now it runs 18 seconds. The cycle went from 2 minutes to 8 minutes. Big improvement. Ordered a second Hi-Lo switch for a 2nd sump pump we have in the basement.

Excellent Switch
I have purchased 2 of the hc6000 switches for both my sump applications. One sump utilizes an ion 1/2 hp pump that catches house run off and water softener discharge. The other sump utilizes the little giant 8-cbm cast bronze pump that catches house run off and laundry water.

I have both switches set up as per the instructions for pits that catch such water. Both switches have performed flawlessly thus far. The amount of adjustability is endless. You can really tweak the amount of water you... more

These are great. Going to order another one for 2nd sump pump. They are super easy to install. In situations where a normal float switch doesn't work correctly, this is just what I was looking for.

Does Exactly What It Is Advertised To Do
The HC6000 is simple to install, and easily adjusted to height. Just snugly zip tie the sensors to the PVC outlet and they'll slide to where you want them, but not move on their own. I now have the pump switching on at exactly the height I want. Plus, being electronic, I would hope it would outlast most float switches.

The one it replaced was cracked after 10 years of use. I coupled this with a Liberty 250 manual pump, and together they make a great combination. My only ever so slight... more

Great Switch
This was a replacement for a tether switch. We have a severe water problem. We have fought this for years. This switch works great. I can adjust the water level to what ever I want. If it holds up ( i think it will ) it will be a great asset.

We have 2 sumps for back up reasons. Will see how this does for a while, then order one for the second pump. I am very impressed with its function. Thank you. If any one gets one of these they will not be disappointed. This is on a 1/2 hp pump.

Stop The Worries!
This product works great. I have a very active sump, with a primary and backup pump, and a couple of alarms. I worry about something hanging up in the float switch. This switch, with no moving parts, has eliminated those worries. It was easy to install, easy to adjust high-low levels, and monitors the current load on the pump motor. I wish I had found this switch years ago!

Hydro-check Hc6000 Outdoor Use
Although designed for indoor use, my application required outdoor installation. I enclosed the electrical connections in a weather proof box and it works perfectly. I am purchasing an additional HC6000 for indoor sump connection.
