Q: If purchasing the 400500e sewage pump, what would be the type and quantity of oil that would need to be maintained? How often would I have to check it? Also what is the normal life expectancy if used on a daily bases
by Harold from Connecticut on October 04, 2012

A: You could use SAE 30 non detergent oil. It should be filled to about inch of the top, however this pump comes already fill with oil. The only time you would need to check the oil level would be if for some reason the float mechanism gets caught up and the pump runs for an extended time. It would then be good to check the oil level in the pump as well as the basin to see if some oil is present. You should expect this pump to last you a good 5-7 years or more with proper care and maintenance.

Q: I have ordered a Bur-Cam 1/2 HP Heavy Duty Sewage Pump Replacement For Easy Flush System (450475). Can I install it in a
Jackel Premium Sewage Basin (18"x30")

by Bill from Nevada on February 06, 2012

A: The 400500E pump is 19 inches high by 11 inches wide. So, to answer your question, you should not have a problem installing it inside a standard sewage basin.

Float Switch
Float switch sticks in on position periodically. You need to monitor the pump when it's operating, to insure it shuts off. If not, pump will run dry and burn up the pump.

Perfect Replacement
It replaced the original pump that went bad after about 20 years, maybe a little more. The original pump had problems from time to time because it was the old style with a float on a tether that was difficult to adjust and could hang up.

This one was preset at the factory for the Bur-Cam up-flush toilet unit. New style float. Hooked it up and it worked perfectly. No adjustments necessary. I could have replaced it with something for a few dollars less, but do you want to adjust a pump... more

Bur-cam 1/2 Hp Heavy Duty Sewage Pump
I purchased this pump as a replacement for my original pump purchased approx. 8 years ago. The box that the replacement pump came in showed a different pump, I didn't want to open the box in case I had to send it back.

I called Sump Pump Direct and they said to go ahead and open the box, sure enough the correct pump was in the box, the box was improperly marked. I installed the pump and it works great.

The 400500e Works Well, But Careful With The Float Assembly
I installed a toilet in a basement with the 4 inch main drain about 5' above ground level. The first 400500E lasted for about 10 years when it stopped working. I installed a second one but didn't realize I bent the float stem during installation. My recommendation if your pump does not work: try plugging in the pump, bypassing the float switch. If it ejects something's wrong w/ the float mechanism. It's easy to bend the float rod during installation.

When you install be sure the... more

Junk
Completely dissatisfied. The first one failed just after warranty expired. Stupidly bought a new one and that has problems with float. Wont shut off automatically. Factory not helpful. Never again.
