Hydrocheck Hc5000
I decided to drill a hole in the lid of the ejector pit to accommodate the probe in order to keep the probe away from the effluent pipe and vent pipe. I sealed the hole with silicon around the wire. I have only had the switch for about 2 months but during that time it has worked perfectly. Time will tell how long it lasts but I have some peace of mind with the lifetime warranty. I like the design because the probe does not sit below the water line for extended periods of time unlike the... more

Did Not Work Well At All
Really didn't have much luck with this product as a sewage pump switch. I have had it installed for about a month and the pump will trigger on it's own and not stop unless the power is removed which resets the switch. I even tried installing the sensor on opposite sides of the tank with the same results. It needs a design change as the sensor flops around the tank and is only held on by a wire. You would think a rubber grommet would also be included in the kit so when you drill the hole for the... more
Cons: Unreliable

Edward,
Sorry to hear about the trouble you're having with this switch. We've been selling this for almost 3-years now and all of the feedback has been positive. I would suggest contacting HydroCheck at (877) 225-2124, for troubleshooting. Many times, when it comes to switches, a small installation change could be the solution to the problem.

Worked Good On Test
Worked great in a test in a bucket. I've have installed it, but we have not had much rain since. If it works as good as the test, I will be pleased.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use

Almost Too Easy To Install
As I was installing the switch I kept waiting for the usual problems to pop up but they never did. It was installed in five minutes and for a change the instructions were excellent. It was not only easy to install but also quite cost effective.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Fast

Great Solution For Me!
My ejector pit pump float was sticking on occasionally (beginning to fail electrically). This switch saved me the messy task of removing the pump, float switch, or even the pit lid! I was able to install it through an extra 2" port. The small diameter allows you to install it through an even smaller port if you need to.

I don't see how it should ever get "fouled"--as soon as the water touches the tip of the probe, the pump switches on, so the probe never should become... more

So Far Works As Advertised
I like the led warnings, set up easy. I've read contact can get dirty and stop working, time will tell. But so far so good. I had to use electrical tape & silicone caulk around wire cause hole in wire grommet way to large.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Features
Cons: a little more expensive than new tether switch

Quick & Easy With No Mess
As with other reviewers, I wish I had this 2 float pump switches ago! Extremely quick and easy installation with no gross mess. On the second test it was emptying exactly the correct amount. (after the first test I lowered raised the sensor an inch or so). Filling the sewage container twice with running water took longer than installing the sensor. 20 minutes total install time including testing.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Device
Float switch went to pot! I'm to damn old to be crawling down holes etc. So I got this unit, problem solved! Works as advertised. Hope it lasts as long as they claim. Haven't had long enough for 5 stars.Check back in a year or three.

Great Product
If I had tried this option first when my float switch on basement toilet failed I could have save money, time, and myself from being arms deep in sewage. This switch works as advertised. Most importantly it can be adjusted very easily for the proper pump start so that you don't have to worry about overflow. So far it has worked flawlessly.
