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.

Works Good
So far so good. Works as described in my small sump. No issues with the way it works but.....who designed the LED to be red/flashing when everything is OK and green when it is full/overflowing? When the sump is at low level/done pumping the light is steady red, flashing red when the sump is filling and steady green when the sump is full.....every time I check on it, the led is flashing red. Takes time to get use to it.

High Tec Flow Switch
Although the first unit shipped to me was DOA. No lights no sound. It was replaced promptly. The replacement unit works perfectly. The no-float design is ideal for my application since the pump sits in a 12" diameter pipe. The 2 sensors can easily be mounted on the discharge pipe and the "ON" and "OFF" levels are repeated very accurately.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Reliable
Cons: Expensive, Not waterproof, should be IP67

Working Well
I have two of these switches running currently and they have been solid. I just replaced another tilting float switches that failed. Those are not too bad but they take a lot of space in the pit. This electronic switch is extremely low profile and you can set the height however you want. So far it is running great. This switch is however very expensive so we'll see if it lasts a lot longer than the other switches. That is really the most important attribute for these switches!
Pros: Easy To Use, Flexibility, Very small in the pit
Cons: Expensive

"I was considering an alternative HydroCheck model and another companies device. Called Sump Pump Direct to talk a bit with them, and their sales / technical staff were outstanding. After a short conversation, they directed me to the HC6000 as a better choice for me. My water softener flows through my sump and I had not picked up on the subtle fact that this could cause some issues if I didn't use the HC6000 version. It was not more expensive, just the more correct choice for my application. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and didn't try to sell me something I didn't need. Their shipping was very fast as well. I got the product sooner than I was expecting."

This One Is It
I installed the HydroCheck to replace a float that would turn on just fine, but not turn off. I was a little concerned about the two sensors "self-determining" which was the low and high points, but it worked perfectly on the test with the garden hose. My only comment is that the brackets or 'stand-offs' from the discharge pipe should be longer. The bottom one will be positioned very close to the pump's volute.

The instructions also say that a separate ground wire might be... more

Replacing A Float Switch
Since the float switch with a submersible pump only has about four inches of movement, my pump would constantly cycle on and off. Installing the HydroCheck was a simple way of setting the on/off cycle to the near full capacity of the sump pit, thereby reducing the number of cycles that the pump turns on and off. As others have commented, the flashing red light should be used to indicate a problem instead of for normal operation. I do worry about the lower sensor developing buildup from being... more

Just What The Pump Needed!
As others have stated, wanted a way to easily set the on and off points for my sump pump. This has to be the easiest way to accomplish - and likely the most reliable as there are no moving parts to fail. I followed instructions, filled sump pit with hose to simulate heavy rain and worked exactly as described and how I hoped it would. Still waiting on mother nature to put it to the test but I see no problems arising from this product. It is a bit expensive, but how do you put a price on... more

Hc6000 - Electronic Hi-lo Pump Switch
I was seeking a solution for a sump pump operation at a condo complex in one of the basements of one of the buildings. The pump was constantly operating every minute and a half to three minutes. It would run for five to seven seconds and shut off and start all over. Evidently, the ground underneath has some water issues that are beyond our control. I was trying to prevent a pump failure and reduce the amount of electricity being used by this circumstance. I researched Hydro Check and found the... more

Great So Far..
I bought two of these to replace a pair of (unreliable) foam type level switches. These new switches were very easy to install and so far have performed flawlessly The built-in alarms are not very loud but they're a nice feature to have.

In spite of the initial high cost of these switches, if they save my basement from another flood, it will be money well-spent..
