  5 Questions
Q: Is this unit ok for use in a sewage basin?
by Steve J from Indiana on April 05, 2014

A: Thank you for your interest in Sump Pumps Direct. The PHCC Pro Series model USC3 Ultimate Sensor Digital Pump Controller System IS designed for use in sump and sewage applications.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Hi Jim,
I have a Pro Series USC3 controller system. My question is should I be concerned about the "build up", I think it's iron deposits or something on the stainless steel sensing rod. If so, how should I clean it?
Thanks

by Jack R from New York on December 13, 2013

A: The computer control of the USC3 is designed to sense the buildup of sediment on the probe and adjust the sensitivity levels for proper operation. The unit will sound an alarm to alert you when it can no longer sense anything on the probe and the time to clean it.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Im considering purchasing the Pro Series USC3 sump pump controller to replace an existing electronic controller that allows a limited water accumulation of 6 or 8 inches or so. I would like to use the USC3 to allow much more water to accumulate in order to reduce the frequency that the sump cycles on. This would mean the pump would be completely submerged on a regular basis. Does this sound like an acceptable use of the controller?
by James P from New Jersey on June 11, 2013

A: The USC3 is an excellent controller for those cases where you want more control over the cycle times of your pump. There is absolutely no problem with having your sump pump completely submerged.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Is the Zoeller N53 pump compatible with the Pro Series USC3 electronic float switch? Thanks.
by Anthony from New York on April 25, 2013

A: Yes, the Pro Series USC3 would work fine with the Zoeller N53.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: I would like to buy the storm pro 1/3 hp pump but would like level switch to control over a longer span (deep pit with higher flow rates at times) want to minimize cycles. Is there a different longer switch rod that can replace the stock version.
by Barry from Minnesota on May 08, 2012

A: Unfortunately not! Your only options would be the Pro Series Ultimate Sensor Pump Controller System, model USC3 or the Superior Pump Wide Angle Tether Float Switch w/ Piggyback Plug, model 92005. The Pro Series switch can be adjusted to pump for 5 - 45 seconds once the water level drops below the sensor and the Superior tether float has an adjustable pumping range of 7 to 36.

Wanted To Replace Float Switch
Kept replacing floats which seemed to fail/falter frequently. This is a simple solution. Pump runs for 8 seconds and if that doesn't empty the sump it runs again. Rarely runs twice and almost never runs three times. Our laundry tub drains into the sump so when the washing machine is going, that might make the pump run 3 times.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable
Cons: Expensive

Works Fine
My sump has a limited distance range from the pump's inlet to the drain hoses, and as such the range of height is limited. This remote switch solves a lot of problems. First, I was able to mount it (as recommended) away from the discharge hoses, but also not on the actual pump, which will make it far easier to replace the pump in the future. Why do I spend as much on the switch as I did on the pump? It's simple: I have bought two sump pumps (for different applications) in the past 3... more

So Far So Good
I purchased this product because all the Big Box Brands kept failing. My brother installed it for me. I've had it for six weeks in lots of rain and it has not failed me to date. It moves the water fast and it is very quiet.I love the backup monitor. At a glance you can tell that your system is working.

My only advise is that you use a good surge protector. The first one we used must have been bad because the alarms went on that the main pump wasn't working when we plugged the backup... more

Brand Rep
Sonia,
Thank you for your review. We would like to clarify that we do not recommend a surge protector to be used on a primary pump since the start surge can actually damage the protector and is not recommended to be used by surge protector manufacturers.

Sump Switch Fix
After experiencing failures in both pressure and tethered type switches I was willing to try out this electronic type. Device acts as both a sump pump switch and an alarm. This is less expensive option since I previously paid for both of these separate devices in the past. Very easy to install. What is great about this product is you can adjust the time perfectly so that is custom made to your sump basin.

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

Ryan,
Thank you for your review. We would like to mention that the USC3 alarm is 85 decibels, which is sufficient for most applications, but if you do have a special situation in which you need a louder sound the watchdog alarm is a good option at 110 decibels.

No More Tangled Floats!
I have a sewage pump in a basin with limited space and have had two different cases where the float has become tangled or obstructed. To make matters worse the kitchen sink also empties into the sewage basin and adds kitchen grease to the equation.

I talked to James about the best option and he recommended the USC3 "Ultimate Sensor Pump Controller."

The controller installed easily into my pit and is working flawlessly. The non moving float is a huge improvement over the tether... more

Happy!
VERY high quality unit. Built like a battleship with lots of thoughtful features.
A little pricey but worth it to get the mechanism up out of the sump environment.
