Dependable & Quiet
Installed this pump with my 12-year old son. It runs quiet, and I'm looking forward to years of dependability from not only the pump but also the digital switch. I'm pleased with the materials (cast iron and stainless steel) and the construction, though the weight is substantially less than 30 pounds as stated on the website (not surprising--how could a 1/3HP pump weight that much?). I left the digital switch mounted on the pump as shown, since (after testing) the on/off levels were perfect for... more

Storm Pro With Ion Switch
Bought sump pump for my daughter's house. She has been replacing them every two year. I researched to find out that the most frequent cause of failure is the float switch. Therefore I bought the Storm Pro with an ion switch and no moving parts. I hope this will last much longer. So far so good and it is very quiet. I have recommended this pump to a close friend. They bought theirs a approx. 6-5-13.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Strompro 1/3 Hp Pump W/ Ion Switch
I purchased the StromPro Ion combination. When finally the condition for operation were met, the 6" switch didn't work. Then I put the switch in a bucket to check operation and observes the switch at didn't operate at 11". I believed the problem to be in the piggyback cable be cause I able to get the level switch to operate somewhat.

I also purchased a 10" Ion switch to operate another pump in the sump, the same problem with this switch. I notified Ion of the problem and... more

Excellent Customer Service From Manufacturer
I installed the Stormpro 1/3 hp with ion switch ba-33i in my home last Saturday. I was extremely happy at how fast the new pump drained water out of the sump well compared to the builder grade pump previously installed.

Not so happy that it kept running, a little troubleshooting, and I found that the switch was bad. The manufacturer stepped up to the plate and shipped me a brand new switch in 2 days with a return label (no out of pocket cost for yours truly).

When a manufacturer... more

Extremely Quiet, Easy Install, Expensive Upfront But Lot Cheaper
I am generally not the type to write reviews, but in this case I am compelled to do so. I replaced an existing sump pump in my basement. The old pump (zoller) was working but the float switch was not. The labor cost of replacing the float switch was almost as much as installing a new pump. I have been using the stormpro (BA-33i) for 6 months now. I am extremely happy with the performance.

I spent $100 more in this pump but I guess I will not be in the same situation where the pump is fine... more
Pros: Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, High Quality

Is It Running?
Wow, this pump is quiet - a little disconcerting in some ways. The original pump (Ridgid) wasn't loud, but you could tell when it was running so you knew it was working. Not complaining, given the reputation of this pump, I shouldn't worry and it's impressive how quiet it runs given how well it pumps.

Just another indication of the quality and construction of this pump that I can appreciate with my mechanical engineering background. We've had a lot of rain since I installed the pump and... more

Hot Rodded Lil' Sump Pump
I chose this model to replace a 17 year old R2D2 looking 1/3rd hp Hydromatic. This new Ion StormPro is a fantastic pump. It's quiet, has a small footprint and plays well together with my Basement Watchdog Big Dog Sump Pump.

Pumping volume is amazing. My lift is approx 7ft of 1-1/2" PVC until it discharges through 48 ft of plastic convoluted pump drain hose before exiting. After 6mos usage I have total confidence in pump and Ion switch.

This pump was exactly what I was looking for... more

So Far, I'm Happy With It.
So far, the iON sump pump works fine with plenty of power. I consider my sump pit moderately active with rainy weather, and I'm confident it will handle it.

The digital control so far is very accurate and goes off within a half inch each time the water fills the sump. I do have a backup pedestal sump pump next to it, and the sump pump circuit is on one of the natural gas generators backup electric line.

So far the pedestal has warned me twice the primary pump has failed so I do... more
