A Good Value At A Reasonable Price Point
This review is predicated upon future performance after all this is a backup system that kicks in when AC power fails.

Pros: well packaged full kit with everything needed (except plumbing parts to replumb the pit) manufacturer will spend umpteen hours on the phone as you learn and research nice array of alert alarms dual-battery option provides potential for days' worth of backup compact footprint in the pit yet decent gallons per hour rating (assuming you plumb wisely).

Cons: it'd be... more

"This website is incomparably far and away better than any other sump pump shopping site I visited, especially and including all Glentronics' authorized resellers'. Given the nature and importance of this sort of purchase I'd want more info than this site provides but it's easy to obtain it by calling here or the manufacturer."

Double Power System
We know what you're thinking: "This kit isn't cheap!"

No more worrying about power outages, malfunctions or clogged pumps. This Basement... more
