Great If Sump Pit Is Spotlessly Clean
I should have known better. With the size of the intake slots this pump is utterly useless unless in a very clean crock or elevated off the bottom. Not even two days after installation a small rock froze it solid. Not wanting this to happen again I covered the inlet with metal window screen material. This seemed to work until the pump was overwhelmed by a storm and the thermal protection shut off the pump leaving a half inch of water in my basement. All this in the first four months after... more
Pros: none
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, clogs

Pumps Very Well But Allready Starting To Rust
It pumps water very well. I am disappointed that I purchased this type of pump. I thought the description of pumping over a longer reach was what I would like. I was replacing a pedestal style pump which had a longer float system. The way I have to position the pump in my crock it sits to high and the drain lines that feed the sump get filled up before the pump activates. The pump is sitting at the bottom of the crock. I have just ordered the liberty pump with the vertical float system.
Pros: Quiet, High Quality, Price
Cons: Bad Instructions

Standing Water
I get A LOT of standing water in my backyard. I need drainage and it is eventually on the list but in the mean time I have this pump connected to 1 3/4 inch hose and it works wonderfully, I would recommend as a lower cost alternative to the more expensive pumps. I have used it roughly 6 times now, no issues. It does have a wierd pinhole discharge on the lower end of the unit but I believe it helps keep the prime stronger. Either way it's used in my back yard and works perfectly. I would... more

Powerful & Ultra Quiet
Just bought a home built in 1952. While doing some work at the house before moving in, I kept hearing the sump pump running about every 10 minutes. Very loud and frequent. I have a 24" sump and it's very deep, so I decided to acquire a new pump that utilized a thether switch instead of a float. The thether allows about 9" of water gain before coming on compared to about 5" with a float. Anyway, hooked it up and it's amazing. Drains the sump in seconds and it's almost silent when... more
Pros: Quiet, Fast, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Waterfall Feature
Tough lookin' little guy. It's been in service now for about two months, working on a timer, running continuously during the day with about a 12' lift. It seems to gobble up the occasional algae clump without complaint.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

So Far So Good
Red Lion RL-SC50T. Selected for tethered float, HP, and cast iron impeller. Package arrived somewhat mangled, but pump was AOK. Impressed with the very durable appearance of the unit time will tell if it lives up to its appearance. Hired plumber to install, but after watching the installation (replacing a 13 year old Wayne sump pump so the discharge pipe was already in place), I realized my husband and I could have tackled installation on our own.

Tethered float cord is very long giving... more
Pros: Quiet, Price, Powerful, Looks Durable Time Will Tell

"I had a few questions before I purchased red lion RL sc50t. My questions were answered quickly and completely. Very impressed with entire experience. (The only negative: the carton was crushed in on the side and I worried that the pump might be damaged. Upon opening carton, it seemed that the unit was unscathed, and with the weight of the unit, I can't imagine one getting shipped without the box getting a little smushed. Maybe the manufacturer will consider using more sturdy packing.)"
