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: While this pump will fit in a standard basin, it will not operate correctly due to the short cycle switch design.

Would Not Buy It...if I Had Known.
The pump kicks on 3 and 4 times per flush. When the toilet flushes, the pump kicks on and pumps..float drops and pump kicks off. Toilet water is still going in pit and pump kicks on, pumping low enough to kick pump off.... a little trickle of toilet water makes pump kick on again for the third time. All this wear and tear and electric use of on and off, a waste. The pump will kick on, if I dump a quart of water in toilet. If I were to have known, I would not have drilled a 1/4 inch hole... more

Good-enough-ski
Replacement pump arrived quickly and flawlessly, and was easy to re-place. Just too bad the first pump failed after only 3 years of use.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Price, Reliable, Durable
Cons: Bur-Cam only lasts 3 years?

Working Fine After Some Customizing
We have an older (mid 1990s) Easy Flush System and the attached switch/float assembly had to be moved farther away from the pump body to clear a baffle in the tank. Made an extension for the mounting bracket and it works fine.
Pros: Price, Quiet, Reliable, High Quality

This was an exact replacement for a pump that had been in service for approx 10 years. I was pleased with that unit and expect the same performance from this pump.

"The product was as I expected, no surprises. I am old school in that I find it a little distasteful for companies to ask for compliments for selling a product . My business is in service and I know when I do a good job and when I screw up, no participation trophies."

Satisfaction Guaranteed!
My husband had no problems installing our new pump it was a breeze. I enjoyed shopping on line and the customer serves when i called in to get help. The gentlemen that took my call was very patient with me since i really wasn't sure how to order this item. After a few words I believe he understood me perfectly since i purchased the pump and all is good again here at home.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Quiet, Fast, Exceeded Expectations

Standard Basin And Pump Kicks On And Off 3 Xs For 1 Flush
In Q&A of your pump, it is answered.. that a standard size basin will work fine for this pump. I installed it as instructions. On flush, will cause the pump to kick on, off (pause)...kick on and off.... and once more as water trickles in to pit..
Cons: kick on and off repeatedly for one flush

Chris,
Yes, dimension wise this pump will fit in a standard basin. However, due to the design of the pump's switch, the cycle will be very short. I will update the Q&A and product page to better explain this.

To increase the on/off cycle of this pump, you should consider a standard float switch. We offer a wide variety of them....Pump Switches

Bur-cam Up-flush Sewage Pump
Sewage pump to replace failed unit. This is the third pump I have installed since I have owned a Bur-Cam toilet (installed system in 2004). First pump lasted for 7 years, second pump lasted 6 years. Both pumps failed in the exact same manner. When float activated pump to energize, motor would not turn the pump so unit would sit frozen and hum at 60 Hz had to unplug it to avoid burning up something or tripping breaker.

Installation fairly straightforward basically a drop-in, and re-used... more

Works Great!
After our local hardware store ordered our new pump, which we had to wait a week for, my husband brought it home and worked tirelessly to install it and get it to work. After a couple hours we realized the pump was the wrong one. By this time, we had been without a second bathroom for a couple of weeks and it smelled so bad we had to keep the door closed.. Then we discovered Sump Pumps Direct on line, we ordered the pump and it was here the next day. We were thrilled. No shipping charges... more
