    Rated 1 out of 5 by from These pumps are garbage We bought this pump 3 years ago. It was well over $400 with the battery back up. Sides are rusting out - sprays water out of the side of the pump and now just recirculates the water in the well. What a waste of money!

    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.

    Are parts separately available, example , if the main pump needs replacement. Or will the entire system need to be replaced.
