Product Questions Answered by Jim, the Sump Pump Expert
Question

can this be mounted horizontally?
Frank 
from New Jersey

Answer
Itís not the best way. It really depends on the amount of head they you have above the check valve on the vertical run but itís still going to be prone to leaking. The KCV check valve isnít spring loaded so the only thing that will keep the valve closed is the water above it so if itís horizontal, itís possible that the water wonít keep it shut and therefore cause it to leak. Sometimes it does work but usually itíll be intermittent.

Can this be used with a Zoeller M53 sump pump?

Answer
Yes, as long as it's a 1 1/2" discharge, which is the same size as the Zoeller M53.

If I got three (3) of the "Klunkless Check Vavles", could I put one on my sewage line, one on the main pump and one on my backup pump?

Answer
This valve is perfect to use on your sump lines because it can accommodate up to 1-1/2" discharge pipes.

For sewage pumps, this check valve will not work because sewage discharge pipes are 2" or larger.

HI Jim, Can you tell me if I can use the Klunkless check valve with a sewage pump?
Ruben

Answer
This check valve can't be used with sewage pumps. The maximum size pipe this valve can handle is 1-1/2".

Sewage pumps have a 2" or larger discharge.
