Housing is poor quality and if your sump pit has standing water, the housing will decompose. Both pumps in the picture are from both sump pits. One is 6 months old (left) and other is year and a half (right). The pump on the right had a blow out and set my home water alarm off.

I bought this combo unit from home depot less than 4 years ago (Nov 2015). Primary pump failed a month back... since it is a combo unit, i purchased the replacement ( i.e., same darn unit), with labor charge it set me back $400. Plumber commented that he see quite of few of these model pumps fail within 3-4 years, and that basementwatchdog is good for backup pumps, not primary. Now within a week the backup pump also failed - now i need to spend more replacing that. I deeply regret choosing this unit, disappointed that I have to spend 3x the cost within the span of 4 years.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not last I was pretty happy with this pump in the beginning, it was simple to install and it takes water out really fast. I’ve had it for a little over two years (now out of warranty) and the main pump will not work. It’s disappointing I had paid hundreds of dollars for a sump pump system that didn’t even last. Now I have to figure out how to open the sealed sump pit (radon mitigation lid) to get to this defective pos....do not buy!

    What is the current draw for this system?

    Asked by: Dereck
    Dereck, it uses 110 regular plug. But you must purchase a Marine Battery. I purchased on from Battery Boy for under $100.00 The draw on the battery I have no clue.

    I have the 1/3 HP Model DFK961. Issues with the back up pump. Glentronics suggested it may be due to number of elbows on discharge (2), 9 ft. Will this model 1/2 HP fit in same 5 gal pail (12 in diameter as the 1/3 HP? Width top of pail is 12 in.

    Asked by: Gilles
    Every pump has a maximum amount of pressure it can overcome. This is referred to as “head pressure” and is measured in vertical feet. Every elbow adds an additional foot of head pressure. The backup system on the Basement Watchdog Combo has a max head of 10 feet. The backup pump on the Basement Watchdog Big Combo has a max head of 14 feet.

    the main pump works fine but the backup pump doesn't draw water. I tested several times. It hums, motors works, but doesn't draw water.. Blockage somewhere ?? Not too reliable considering the price paid for peace of mind.

    Asked by: Gilles
    Possible air lock in the backup pipe. Ensure the bleeder hole is not plugged as this is required to eliminate air lock.
