  4 Questions
Q: Will the LevelGuard sensor in this configuration work in a separate lift / effluent tank being pumped to a mound? No solids should be going from the septic tank to the lift or effluent tank. I know LevelGuard sells a sewage sensor, but it seems this sensor should work fine where no large solids are present.

Thanks ... Bill

by Bill A from Minnesota on October 22, 2015

A: Actually, in a sewage application, even though there are no solids being pumped and you are only dealing with the effluent, the LevelGuard Z24803PTZ - Electronic Sewage & Effluent Pump Switch should be used due to the more acidic nature of the liquids being pumped.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Jim:

Is the "LevelGuard Switch" resistant to build up on its surface? My sump water seems to be high in calcium...it builds up deposits on the pumps and floats. I generally have to de-scale my pumps and floats every 1-2 years.

Thanks in advance,
Wayne

by Wayne J from Minnesota on December 20, 2014

A: While we do not have any specific answer to how the LevelGuard reacts to the buildup of various materials, it will handle a certain amount of buildup. Generally, this highly dependent upon what the build-up material consists of. For a non-porous, non conductive material such as peanut butter the thickness would be 4 to 5 mm. For a material that soaks up water as it sits it would be considerably lower. For more specific answers, you might contact LevelGuard tech support at (877) 342-3261.
As with any sump pump system, all manufacturers recommend that your system be inspected every 3-6 months to insure that they are operating correctly and that the basins are free and clean of any debris that may impede the operation of the pumps or float switch.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: My Zoller pump has a threaded female connector on the body. What am I expected to put between the pump body and the bottom clamp of this check valve?
by BN from California on September 17, 2014

A: Typical installations will include the discharge PVC Sch40 pipe screwed into the pump discharge port and extending approximately 2-3 feet above the sump basin cover. At this point, you could attach the check valve and then complete your discharge configuration. This method would allow for an easier access point for you to service your pump.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: How does the level guard switch work
by Gary R from Ohio on May 03, 2014

A: Thank you for your interest in Sump Pumps Direct. The LevelGuard switch works based on Field Effect sensing technology that was developed by TouchSensors, Inc out of Wheaton, IL.
Field-Effect sensors are digital, solid-state electronic devices that can detect conductive materials such as water or the human touch. The sensor’s cell design uses an integrated circuit (IC) that switches its output state when the conductive target is sensed. A Field-Effect cell is comprised of three main elements, the IC, a unique sensing electrode geometry, and two tuning resistors. Moreover, Field-Effect requires no moving parts, floats, software, or any other mechanism to operate.
When 5 VDC is supplied to the sensor, a low power, invisible field is created. The field emanates directly through any protective dielectric barrier such as plastic or glass that may surround or cover the sensor. When a conductive object or material enters the field, the sensor detects the change and indicates an event has occurred with a corresponding output signal. The input stimulus to the field is typically water in most liquid level sensing applications, as is the case in TouchSensor’s™ LevelGuard Home Sump Pump Control product line.

My High Water Table Problems Are Resolved
Not only did I have problems in my basement when it rained, I had problems with a high water table during the whole year. I have neighbors with the same problems. With sump pumps in their basements they have problems with how often their sump pump had to pump.

I solved that problem with a Zoeller N98 - 1/2 HP cast iron electronic water level control kit and a 55 gallon discarded plastic barrel. By using a N98 - 1/2 horse Zoeller pump kit Model #SPD-N98Kit, I not only solved the wet weather... more

Zoeller Makes A Good Pump
It costs a lot more but the pump is made in the USA. I've had no trouble with installation, took about 30 mins, much less noise. I wish the pump was packed better. Level guard is better than a float, it has a larger pumping range, about 8 inches.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Packaging, Expensive

Replacement Pump
I think this was a very wise decision. The best part is that there is no mechanical float and I used the electronic float switch.

Back In Business!
The service from this company was excellent. When our big box store pump succumbed after only 2 years, I searched online and found SPD. They were very helpful and had me fixed up with what I needed very quickly.

The pump arrived in 2 days and was a snap to install. We have been even more happy with this one as it is of much better quality and quieter than the old one. The biggest plus was the LevelGuard switch!!
Pros: Durable, Features, Quiet, Price

Solid Pump
So far so good. Bought this pump in December 2014. Not a whole lot of water in the winter but what we have had has kicked out of the sump in seconds! I had some time off of work so decided to replace a 15 year old pump.

I spoke to Jim on the phone and he was very helpful and knowledgeable. I had a few unique situations and he listened patiently and helped me to decide on which pump to purchase for my budget and my needs.

I really like the electronic switch that activates the pump when the... more

Great Pump
This is a well made and quiet pump. It works great and the level guard is awesome. It is worth the extra money you pay for it.

My water in the sump basin is at the lowest I have ever seen. I will buy this product if I ever need another one. It all works out with the no shipping charge and it was shipped the very next day after placing the order.

This. Is. Awesome!
Started out by having switch problems with our 8 year old Zoeller - read some reviews and SPD help pages. Ordered a backup pump and LevelGuard Switch. After checking by phone, secured the on/off switch in the "on" position and installed a LevelGuard on it. IT WORKS SO MUCH BETTER, DOESN'T SHORT CYCLE, AND IS MUCH QUIETER!

Glad to have the backup ready to go, but I have no doubt that the LevelGuard will extend the life of our old Zoeller quite a bit. Great buying experience... more

A Great Combination
Installed in a sump pit that required a sealed lid due to radon mitigation system. It works very well. I installed per the mfg. recommendations but would suggest not installing hole in discharge pipe as required for air release.

Water will spray all over and out of the pit. There is a small hole in the pump casing for this purpose and it is always below the waterline. So to avoid the mess I plugged the hole in the discharge pipe with a small screw. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
