Q: have liberty waterpowered sump model 5710 what is the capacity on this model
by Fred R from Kentucky on March 17, 2014

A: Thank you for your interest in Sump Pumps Direct. The pumping capacity on the Liberty SJ10 Water Powered Backup Sump Pump really depends on your water pressure(PSI). Minimum required water pressure for this pump is 30PSI. At 30PSI, you will get approximately 990GPH @ a 10' head. If you water pressure is greater, your pumping capacity will also increase.
If you have additional questions, please let me know.

Q: Which is better, a battery back-up system or a water back-up system?
by Linda L from Kentucky on February 06, 2014

A: Depending on the water table in your area and the potential for flooding you could go either way. If your water removal needs are below average, you could elect to go with a low GPH rated battery backup sump pump or water powered backup. Please note that water powered systems will only work with a minimum of 20-40 PSI. They will not work if you draw your water from a well. The typical water powered system would provide between 300-1000GPH of pumping capacity. If you're in a little higher water table that the flooding potential is a bit higher, you may want to consider a battery backup system rated at between 1000-2300GPH. If the flooding potential and water table are very high, you might look at the systems rated at 2400GPM and higher. You should also check with your local municipality to make sure that they are allowed as some municipalities have outlawed them as they do waste water in a sense.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Hi Jim,

I'm looking at the Liberty built SJ10 pump to work as a backup as we have had issues with water in the basement in the past. After reading some of its literature, I noticed it needs a minimum of 20 PSI of municipal pressure to work. Is there a way to check for this before ordering this product? Also it's advertised as pumping 990 gph/10'. What does this mean? In your experience is this a well built pump or are there better out there as a back-up and for similar money? I have read a few negative reviews about the float switch being very cheap and flimsy and the spring loaded check valve not operating correctly. Also, there has been a review stating it doesn't remove enough water fast enough. I'd love to hear what you think!

by Michael from Michigan on August 09, 2012

A: You might try contacting a local licensed plumber or look at purchasing an inline pressure gauge to install at your spigot that would give you a good idea of your water pressure. The 990GPH/10' means that the Liberty model SJ10 will pump water up 10 feet at a rate of 990 gallons per hour or 16.5 gallons per minute (GPM). Liberty is one of the top manufacturers of pumps in the U.S. and their product is very well built and designed. While there may be better, more expensive systems out there, we currently offer only two water powered backup systems. This and the Bur-Cam model 300402.
Depending on the water table in your area and the potential for flooding, you could go with a water powered or battery backup sump pump system. If your water removal needs are below average, you could elect to go with a low GPH rated battery backup sump pump or water powered backup. Please note that water powered systems will only work if you have a municipal water supply with a minimum of 20-100 PSI. They will not work if you draw your water from a well. A low output system would provide between 300-1000GPH. If you're in a little higher water table that the flooding potential is a bit higher, you may want to consider a battery backup system rated at between 1000-2300GPH.

Awesome Backup Device
After extensive research, I bought the Liberty SJ-10 SumpJet Water Powered Backup Pump, from Sump Pumps Direct. I wanted a Backup system that would function if the power went out (or a pump failure) on my primary pump. Especially if I was away from home. The price was very reasonable, great shipping, and the installation was straightforward for anyone with basic knowledge of plumbing.

It works great (as advertised) and gives peace of mind that my basement will not flood. I've tried the... more

Needed A New Water Powered Backup
My old water powered backup was 14 years old and was not functional for the last year or more, maybe longer. I was going to anti up for the more expensive ceiling mounted base pump rb750, but I was talked into the liberty when a local plumbing outfit told me he's had nothing but success with this liberty sj10. I decided to go with it based on that additional nudge, the write ups here on sump pumps direct and the fact that the sj10 would be an easier install.

I also bought a new liberty 250... more

Back Up Sump Pump With No Electricity
This pump is a must for all who need a back up pump with out electricity. You do need a city water supply or have a well pump on a back up power supply. The pump is made of high quality pvc and stainless parts (no corrosion) and installs above the level of your current pump If that should fail or your power goes off, then this pump will take right over. For every gallon of water you use, this pump puts out two gallons out of your sump. The brochure asks you to exercise the sump once a month by... more

Great Product
Ordered this pump as a backup for the main pump.delivery was very fast even though i chose standard ground delivery. Thumbs up to everyone there.

Installation was relatively easy. No problems were encountered with the install.the pump works great. I would recommend this pump to anyone. You do need some plumbing experience to install this pump.

Easy To Install-hard To Test
Quick delivery! Had to install on board above the basin due to lack of room. This makes it more difficult to test because the float is above basin inlet. Pump seemed to pump faster than my original water back-up pump (identical to Bur-Cam model 300402), but sometimes makes a noise when shutting down. It's as if the water shut off is not completely engaged. Manually activated several times and it appears to be working OK. Wish it was easier to test with my set-up. Too soon to accurately... more

Good So Far
This back up pump was recommended to me by my plumber who happens to be a friend. I asked him if I could order it myself from SumpPumpsDirect, he said that if I could save money by all means. When I told him what I was able to get it for, he said to order it because he couldn't get it cheaper.

He installed the pump a few days later. It looks great and the design seems to be perfect for a back up system that doesn't rely on any power to work. I have used a battery back up for years but... more

Great Pump
We get a lot of water in the sump well. In 2006 we had an October storm that left everyone without power for days. My wife and I were pulling buckets of 5 gallon pails out of the basement and still had 8 inches of water on the floor. The marine battery backup had died one hour after the main power died and, at the time, we had no generator. Since then when the power goes out or the floater dies we knew we had 10 minutes to run the generator before the water would crest and start flooding the... more

After Backup Sump Shuts Off Noise Heard
After my SJ-10 backup sump pump shuts off it makes a noise for several seconds like water shutoff not completely shutting down. What can cause this & what is wrong.
Rick Recommends This Liberty Pumps Product
Jim, the Sump Pump Expert
Product Expert
Rick,
For these types of systems, there is going to be some noise because you're using water pressure to pump water. I'd suggest making sure that it has been installed correctly. For advanced trouble shooting, it would be best to contact Liberty Pumps directly @ (800) 543-2550.

Liberty Sj10 Backup System
I purchased the Liberty SJ10 Sump Pump as a backup pump. We get a lot of drainage water in our basement sump hole and are always afraid that our regular sump pump will not work if the power goes off or the battery backup is not going to work The Liberty SJ10 seems like it will solve our problem, we have not had a power outage yet this Spring, but it seems to be a good unit.

Backup System
Purchased the SJ10 through sump pumps direct as the price was less than I was being quoted by the plumbing company that was to install my system. The free shipping was nice also!
Pros: Price, Quiet, Reliable
Cons: The Backup Flow Preventer Required In Mi Is Quite Pricey
