Q: What is the actual voltage in the wire running from the sensor to the plug-in module? It looks way too thin for 120V. My customer wants to use a sensor to activate the pump he had installed in his backyard to remove flooding rain water off of his property.
by Vinny R from Arizona on September 17, 2016

A: The actual voltage from the sensor to the plug is 5 VDC, current limited to about 50 uAmps.
These switches can typically handle pumps rated at Min/Max current of 2.5/14 running amps.
If you have any other questions, please let me know.

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.

This is a great product. Float switches found on the standard pump will fail, but the electronic switch will not. Why take the risk! We have placed these units in multiple homes we have and rest easy knowing the pump will activate properly.
Pros: Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: none

Feeling So-so
It set up easily, I like the led warnings. I read that contact can get dirty and not conduct circuit so far have not had problem, only problem is sometimes won't completely empty pit, on set up it did run for at least 5 sec. Based on this not sure if i would recommend or not.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use
Cons: cost more than replacement tether

Great Product
I had to install one of these in a 12 in. basin with a sump pump where size was an issue. Easy to install and works like a dream. Only improvement I would recommend is to make the plug smaller so that an outdoor receptacle cover plate would close all the way shut.
