Failed Twice In 11 Months
Installed this pump in November 2015. In October, 2016, it failed. The pump was running but apparently the impeller had come loose and there was oil leaking from the pump. Brought it to the Zoeller service center near Chicago and they elected to repair the pump. I got it back a week later and installed it. After two weeks the pump died - the switch was providing power but the pump wasn't running. A watt meter showed the pump was pulling zero power. Brought it back to the service center... more

Great Pump At An Even Greater Price
My pump went out and needed one fast. Called Grainger and they had a Little Giant in stock but the price was really high. I really wanted a Zoeller and after I pulled the failed pump out I realized it was a little giant that failed. So now I was sure I wanted a Zoeller.

Went on Sump Pumps Direct and found a Zoeller 1/2 horse which by the way the Little Giant was a 1/4 horse for less than half the price of the little giant at Grainger. So I bought 2 pumps for less than the price of one so I... more
