Sump Pumps Direct Recommended

This Flotec pump is a high volume pump that can be used in different applications. Use it with the float switch and it’s a lifesaver in your sump pit. Use it as a utility pump and pump put window wells with ease.

It can be used in pits as small as 10” Wide X 10" Deep. The pump is also energy efficient because the motor is only 6.3 amps, compared to other pumps that are 10 amps or more and you can't beat a 5 year warranty.

If you’re looking for a high volume pump that can pump 4000+... more

This Fits My Pump
After basement flooded 3 times in 10 years due mostly to negligence of maintenance of what was in my pit, I took an aggressive replacement stance. I put a 1 hp mounted higher than the 3/4 hp with different outlets. The 1hp was bought from sump pumps direct. I have the 3/4 hp doing the day to day work. When the heavy rains come the 1 hp will kick on rarely. I replace the Flotec every 2 years and test my system that has a high water alarm (bought for $20.00) every month. I

also change the... more

Bad Pumps, Bad Customer Service
Unfortunately, I've had several really bad experiences with Flotec pumps . Their floats failed twice on me - once within a year, without much on/off activity too. While they replaced that one, the next one they did not. I got stonewalled by their customer service. When your pump goes out, you want to replace it right away....immediately - you know this and Flotec knows it. So, to tell a customer to mail it in, have it analyzed, and then they'll make a determination of what to do is... more

Flotec Does Not Stand Behind The Warranty
I bought Flotec ($200) because of the Lifetime warranty. When the first pump went out, Flotec replaced it with one that had a 5 year warranty. When that one went out at 6 months, Flotec said the warranty only applied to the first pump. The pump was hard to put in and remove. I had to have help. I purchased another Flotec to use at another $200 until the replacement came in (and later as an emergency backup) - which didn't happen. I'm so angry I'm going to return the newly purchased one and... more

Flotech 3/4 Sump Pump
Pump keeps up with the heavy rains. Works good but switch does not last 5 years. Will call Flotech customer service to see what they tell me. Will write another review than.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Fast, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Durability

Replacement Of Pedestal Pump
We purchased FloTec 5975 as a replacement for a pedestal sump pump used to raise and eject water to an open ditch storm drain. It took only a few minutes for our plumber to install it. It is very quiet and efficient. During heavy rains our ditch drain is sometimes below water level and the switch on our pedestal pump overheated and failed. We're hopeful this higher capacity pump will hold up under stress conditions.

Flotec 3/4 Hp Sump Pump
Had my sump pump go up after about 8 years of service. Had to run out to Home Depot, as no plumbing shops around DC had a 3/4 HP Pump. After re-piping to configure to the new pump, this pump has worked great. The vertical float is limited, so I removed and have paired it with a HydroCheck HC6000 (electronic float controller). This pump will do whatever you want. I also installed an AY McDonald check (noise eliminating kind). I bought another flotec 3/4 HP from Sump Pumps Direct, as a... more

Exchange Made Easy
Unfortunately one pump did not work, but it was exchanged hassle free. The pump has been working great and we still have the spare. We will buy more as we need them

Powerful And Reliable
I have used this pump for nearly a year. It has the power and performance I need. During our infrequent heavy rainfalls, this pump lives up to the challenge pumping out the massive amounts of incoming water. We had flooded twice before and since installing this unit, we have not. I highly recommend this particular unit.
Pros: Durable, Fast, Reliable
Cons: Not The Quietest Pump
