Q: Hallo Jim,

CH6000 & CH8000 - witch one to use on a basement sump pump?

Igor.

by Igor from Illinois on February 03, 2016

A: Either one will work on a 120V, 14 max amp rated sump pump. The HC6000 gives you the ability to fine-tune your ON & OFF activation points by providing a sensor for each activation point. The HC8000 provides you with a single sensor that is used to activate your pump. Once activated, the pump will evacuate water till the pump loses prime or starts sucking air.

Q: Can i mount the top electrode facing Up instead of down? so i can get more water.?
by Jeff from New Jersey on March 12, 2015

A: Yes, the sensor could be mounted facing up instead of down without any problems. The sensors are completely sealed, so they can be mounted in any orientation you like.

Neat Product For Controlling Sump Pump
This pump control works well for sump pump control without having to tend to the unit and the water levels as the sensors are easily installed and adjusted.

Works Good
So far so good. Works as described in my small sump. No issues with the way it works but.....who designed the LED to be red/flashing when everything is OK and green when it is full/overflowing? When the sump is at low level/done pumping the light is steady red, flashing red when the sump is filling and steady green when the sump is full.....every time I check on it, the led is flashing red. Takes time to get use to it.

I Can Sleep Peacefully Again!
I had recently purchased a new submersible sump pump with a vertical float when the previous one with an electronic switch failed after a few years. When the float switch failed within a month, needless to say I was pretty frustrated. After reading the reviews, I purchased the HC6000. Easy install, worked without much trouble.

An added benefit is that my sump goes on less often. There isn't any adjustability with the built in float switch - goes on too soon and only for a few seconds. ... more

Hydrocheck Hc6000 - Electronic Hi-lo Pump Switch
The product works as advertised. It has only been in operation for a couple of weeks but has performed well during this time. However, this is a very short test period for this type of device. Only time will tell if the product lives up to its claim.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features

Stops The Flooding
I use the HC6000 to cycle a small condensate pump that isn't equipped with a float switch. The pump sits in a sump that acts as a backup system in an egress window well. The terrain around the house doesn't allow much slope for the drain tile system, and if heavy rains allow the water to back up to the window well the sump and pump come into play. It was tested recently during some unusually heavy rains and worked flawlessly.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, High Quality

Great For Application
I had a small pipe I needed pumped out quite often and a float would not work. This on/off control worked great it fit in the 4 inch pipe with the suction hose and works perfect..

Works Great!
I was going through 1 sump pump about every 8 months from it constantly kicking on and off every minute and a half. Now it goes pumps about 15 minutes and shuts off for about an hour. I have a deep sump pit that holds about 5 feet of water so plenty of wiggle room for adjustment. Hopefully it will make the pump last a couple years now, we'll see!

Great Product. Installed In Minutes.
I was looking for a way to increase the time between runs on a submersible. The sump crock is only 16" in diameter and it fills very rapidly during rains or snow melts. The submersible ran about was only off for about 10 seconds between runs and I was worried that it would short-cycle itself to failure. The fixed float on the pump only allowed about 5" of drain. This came out of the box and was installed in minutes and I was able to more than double the drain to 12". Time... more

Good Unit
Easy to install, used on sump pump that the switch went bad. I liked the the way it worked so this means that the pump does not run as often. Little high priced, but it works well.
