Q: Liberty Pump Customer Service Tech recommended Liberty 253 for our application (Pit is recessed in floor' Pit measures 19" in diameter and 24" deep; Washer drains into utility sink and then into pit; Outlet pipe measure 2" OD). Would 257 be as good or better choice for this application?
by Mike S from Ohio on November 13, 2014

A: Thank you for your interest in Sump Pumps Direct. While the model 257 is the same pump as the 253, the 257 comes with a vertical float switch instead of the tether float switch on the 253. The tether float switches do tend to hold up and last a bit longer in cases where you also have laundry water draining into the pump. So, based on this, I would recommend sticking with the Liberty model 253.

A Very Satisfied And Real Customer
Our old sump pump started to sound like it was failing. It is located below our bedroom in the basement and was making a lot of noise. Rather than go back to the "big box" store in town and purchase a third one of the same brand in five years I did a little research and decided on the Liberty Pump as it was given good reviews.

I ordered it in the afternoon from Sump Pumps Direct on a Monday and figured it would take about a week. The NEXT MORNING I was watching TV and a FEDEX... more

Runs Quiet And Well Built
So far, so good, but I have only had the pump for a month. Working as it should. I'll make another review in three years at the end of the warranty period.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Expensive

Love The Liberty Pump
I was replacing one of 2 sump pumps I have and decided to order a liberty pump from sumppumpsdirect.com instead of buying another one at the local hardware/bigbox store and it was the right move. I'm very happy with it so far. I'll probably order another one. It's very quiet when it operates.

Just In Case
I had the exact same model 253 for about 5 years and has been working well (my pump runas about every 5 minutes in the spring time and once an hour during the dry season) but I thought it might be wise to get a new one just in case and keep the old as a back up. I have done so and am comfortable with my situation. Thanks Liberty

Good Sump Pump
I haven't had this pump installed too long, but it has worked fine so far.

It's very quiet, was easy to install and is heavy enough that it doesn't wander in the sump, even though it's connected to a flexible discharge hose.

The tether switch swing allows a good volume of effluent each discharge. Happy so far.

Great Pump
I bought this to replace an old pump with a sliding float that rusted off. This has the tethered float switch that is attached with the rubber insulated feed wire. It installed very easily and, I assume, will last a lot longer than the old one. When I tested it the only way I knew it was pumping was that the water level went down because it was so quiet I couldn't hear it run.

Liberty Pumps requires a sales receipt with the model and serial number from the vendor in case of warranty issues,... more

John,
The email you received (order conformation) would be considered your receipt. The serial number can be found on the pump. We've never had any issues regarding this. Please let us know if you have any issues regarding warranty issues.

Mr Wayne Lake
Great pump. My new one is a back up for the same model that is now in service keeping our basement dry. I want a pump I can count on and this is it. Thanks Sump Pumps Direct for fast delivery and great price.
