Q: Is this pump capable of handling water softener and washing machine discharge?

if not, which brand/model can?

by Steve K from Wisconsin on June 06, 2013

A: Generally, sump pumps are not recommended for use in a water softener and/or laundry application. Just about all manufacturers will void the warranty if the pump is installed and fails in this application. You might check out our selection of LAUNDRY / DRAIN PUMP SYSTEMS as most of these self contained systems are designed for laundry and water softener applications.

Built Like A Tank & Made In The Usa
This pump was purchased to replace a popular over-priced box store brand which was corroding after only 6 years. The cheap float switch failed on my old pump. The Liberty pump has a very heavy duty housing and empties my sump pit in about 8 seconds. The pump is very quiet. Although it uses a little more electricity than a 1/3 hp pump it runs for shorter periods of time due to the higher volume of water it can evacuate. I am using a Level Guard sensor switch (I highly recommend). The Level... more

Solid
This pump is solid and heavy. I like its taller and thinner so it was a great fit for my pit with a separate backup. Would recommend this to anyone.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Upgraded Pump System
I upgraded from a HydroMatic 1/4 HP to this 1/2 HP Liberty Pump. This pump is heavy and extremely quiet. After installing the controller, I was adding water to my sump well to adjust the pump ON time. While waiting for the pump to turn on and still adding water, the water level started to drop rapidly. I didn't even hear the pump kick on and that was the purpose of adding water to the well. So, I had to try again. This time I held onto the pipe to "feel" when the pump kicked on.more

Liberty 280 Sump Pump
I am extremely pleased with my new Liberty 280 pump. This pump is by far rated at the highest head of any in it's class. It pumps down my sump in 2 - 3 minutes, compared to 10 -15 minutes for the pump it replaced. Anyone who needs the extra discharge pressure will be very pleased with this pump.

Great Pump, Great Seller
Purchased this pump a couple weeks ago, it shipped promptly, however the shipping company broke the pump in transit, oil leaked all over the box, rather than send it back, the shipping company placed it in another box and relabeled it, and left it on my porch.

Immediately I was in contact with SPD, Joan and Robert were both very helpful. Within a couple hours a pickup had been scheduled for the old unit, and the new unit was cross shipped as soon as the old unit was picked up at no cost to... more

Great Design
I installed this valve with my new pump. I was impressed that the "flapper" inside was metal reinforced. The others I've seen are either rubber or plastic. The Zoeller seems more robust. The somewhat larger chamber inside the valve body provides quiet operation in my experience. A cheap check valve is just that....a foolish place to save money. Failure of this part could create a messy expensive situation. I have great confidence in this product.
