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.

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!
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Quiet, Features, Exceeded Expectations, Light Weight, Price

Anthony,
I'd suggest contacting HydroCheck directly @ 877-225-2124 or TechSupport@HydroCheckProducts.com
They should be able to provide you with some advanced troubleshooting, so the switch can operate better for your application.

Hc6000 Product Review
I installed the HC6000 for a lady friend. Her old sump pump had failed, and one of her neighbors bought her a new pump with a tethered float. Her sump is a 9" deep piece of teerra cotta flue liner, 11" square on the inside resting on bedrock. Her basement has two levels, a 7' high 10'x10' area where the sump is, and there is a 10" step up to a higher floor level where the furnace, oil tank, and water heater are.

The tethered float on the pump she had would not activate... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, High Quality, Easy installation

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..

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.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Features
Cons: Expensive

High Tec Flow Switch
Although the first unit shipped to me was DOA. No lights no sound. It was replaced promptly. The replacement unit works perfectly. The no-float design is ideal for my application since the pump sits in a 12" diameter pipe. The 2 sensors can easily be mounted on the discharge pipe and the "ON" and "OFF" levels are repeated very accurately.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Reliable
Cons: Expensive, Not waterproof, should be IP67

Working Well
I have two of these switches running currently and they have been solid. I just replaced another tilting float switches that failed. Those are not too bad but they take a lot of space in the pit. This electronic switch is extremely low profile and you can set the height however you want. So far it is running great. This switch is however very expensive so we'll see if it lasts a lot longer than the other switches. That is really the most important attribute for these switches!
Pros: Easy To Use, Flexibility, Very small in the pit
Cons: Expensive

"I was considering an alternative HydroCheck model and another companies device. Called Sump Pump Direct to talk a bit with them, and their sales / technical staff were outstanding. After a short conversation, they directed me to the HC6000 as a better choice for me. My water softener flows through my sump and I had not picked up on the subtle fact that this could cause some issues if I didn't use the HC6000 version. It was not more expensive, just the more correct choice for my application. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and didn't try to sell me something I didn't need. Their shipping was very fast as well. I got the product sooner than I was expecting."
