Will level guard work if I get an orange build up in my sump pit over a year or two?
Evan Tuxbury 
from Massachusetts 
November 20, 2017
Answer
It really depends on how much buildup you get. It should work but it may need cleaning periodically if it is really heavy. We've dealt with customers with iron in their water and they are happy if they only have to clean the switch every two months! Others may not have to clean it but once every year or so.

Where do I find the serial number for product registration?
Jerry L. 
from New York 
March 19, 2017
Answer
The serial number is just below the barcode of the white tag around the power cord.
+
Why can't this be used in a softener disposal scenario? Would it affect the body, or would it simply create a rust buildup on the sensors (something I can clean at intervals). I have this scenario. Thanks
Jon 
from Ohio

Answer
Actually, the salt changes the chemical composition of the water in a way that the pump's internal sensors cannot read accurately, thus causing possible failures. You are also welcome to call LevelGuard tech support at (877) 342-3261 if you would like more information.

Can I zip tie the float/switch in the up position on my automatic pump?
Jason P. 
from Illinois 
March 16, 2017
Answer
While it's not recommended Jason, it is possible. You would need to GUARANTEE that that Zoeller float switch will NOT slip back into the "OFF" position again or you WILL have problems.

When I installed my LevelGuard, it did not empty all the water from the sump pit right away. The pump ran several times until finally the water level went below the lower switch point line. Is something wrong?
Francis J 
from Illinois 
July 31, 2014
Answer
No. When the LevelGuard is first plugged in, it initiates a 'sump calibration routine'. This runs as follows assuming the sump pit is full of water:

Runs pump for 15 seconds, then stops.
Runs pump for 16 seconds, then stops.
Runs pump for 17 seconds, then stops.
This continues, increasing the pumping time in 1 second increments up to 99 seconds or until the bottom sensor is reached.
The purpose of this routine is to protect the equipment from running continuously in the event of a failure of the LevelGuard to detect a change of state by the lower sensor. This might occur if buildup of foreign material on the LevelGuard occurs or an object such as a sock falls into the pit and clings/covers LevelGuard's sensor area.

The side of my sump pit gets covered with a scum build up that can get up to two inches thick. Will this cause a problem with this field sensing technology?
Kurtis Y 
from Iowa 
July 15, 2014
Answer
Thank you for your interest in Sump Pumps Direct. I brought your concerns up with the folks at LevelGuard and received the following response.

Yes, build up like that can definitely prevent activation of the LevelGuard sensors. This could particularly be of concern if the sump was filling and the LG fails to sense the rise in water level. Heavy build up of material on the LG surface can also cause false activation of the sensors but this is less of a problem due to the pump run-on prevention feature built into the software.
Regarding their "Peanut Butter Test" Video that we show on our site:
While this seems like a straight forward question the answer is highly dependent upon what the build-up material consists of. For a non-porous, non conductive material such as peanut butter the thickness would be 4 to 5 mm. For a material that soaks up water as it sits it would be considerably lower.


In addition, all manufacturers do recommend that you inspect your pumps, switches, batteries (if applicaple) and basins every 3-6 months to insure that the pumps and switches are operating correctly and there is no debris that might impede their operation. In addition, batteries should be checked for acid levels and terminals should be clean.
If you have additional questions, please let me know.

How does the level guard switch work
Gary R 
from Ohio 
May 03, 2014
Answer
Thank you for your interest in Sump Pumps Direct. The LevelGuard switch works based on Field Effect sensing technology that was developed by TouchSensors, Inc out of Wheaton, IL.
Field-Effect sensors are digital, solid-state electronic devices that can detect conductive materials such as water or the human touch. The sensor’s cell design uses an integrated circuit (IC) that switches its output state when the conductive target is sensed. A Field-Effect cell is comprised of three main elements, the IC, a unique sensing electrode geometry, and two tuning resistors. Moreover, Field-Effect requires no moving parts, floats, software, or any other mechanism to operate.
When 5 VDC is supplied to the sensor, a low power, invisible field is created. The field emanates directly through any protective dielectric barrier such as plastic or glass that may surround or cover the sensor. When a conductive object or material enters the field, the sensor detects the change and indicates an event has occurred with a corresponding output signal. The input stimulus to the field is typically water in most liquid level sensing applications, as is the case in TouchSensor’s™ LevelGuard Home Sump Pump Control product line.
