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...

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

Works Just As Advertised
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

Fantastic Product
I sit on a water table and water is always pouring into my sump pit. The other pumps I used with their attached floats were constantly on because I could not adjust the level where I wanted the pump to kick on. This float does the trick.

The water level of where the pump should kick on and off is totally adjustable. Also, easy to install and with no moving parts, it cant' break down. I purchased 2 of these. One for the primary pump and a second for the backup pump.

I set the lower... more

I Never Thought It Wod Work.....
I didn't believe for a second that this could/would work. To my surprise it works much better than the traditional float style switches. No float to worry about getting hung up or switch that is submerged in water waiting to fail.

Not to mention it monitors the power usage of the pump so it knows when the pump is about to go and sounds an alarm to let you know. It does everything you need it to and does it well. Worth every penny.

Fine Tune Your Sump Pump
It's been 9 months since my initial review, and I have them in 2 different houses now. I am happy to say, it is the first time in many years that I don't have to worry about the float switch. They just work and work well!
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Quiet
Cons: Expensive

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.

Hydrocheck Hc6000
This sump pump controller was very easy to install & adjust for start & stop water levels. It went through it's setup routine & has worked fine ever since.

I'm using it in a regular sump well and not a sewage sump well, so can't say how well it works for dirty water.
