It has yet to be fully tested under real world conditions. I did hose fill the sump and it activated and switched to the battery back up as promised. The "smart WiFi Capable" promise on the advertisement is very miss leading. it requires an additional purchase which I did not see or notice in the product information. I had hoped it was WiFi included. Product literature on line should be clearer!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Cast Iron The main pump is NOT cast iron, as it says in the specs. It is thin cast Aluminum. Unless they discovered a non-magnetic cast iron, the description is FALSE.

I was always concerned, loss of power during storms and getting basement flooding, which would be night mare After lot of research I brought Basement watchdog, Which easy to Install with Maintenance free Battery(Its worth spending around another $120.00 since there is no gasses coming and don't have to worry maintain Battery liquid level) I am very Happy and Satisfied and Thank you Glentronics Team for Bringing such good product and Peach of mind Thank you Suren Pathuri

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed some peace of mind... I purchased this combination after we had a significant flood caused by the plunger on our old sump pump jamming against the sump pit wall. I have tried multiple sump pumps and what intrigued me about this pump was the compact multiple float system. The Watchdog system came in a few days and I installed it in about 30 minutes. I have pvc rigid pipes running from the pump up about 3 ft to a 90º elbow and out the sump line. The first night after installation we had a second flood, but at no fault of the Watchdog system. This pump is so powerful it blew the pvc pipe right out the sump line in the wall and pumped the water right back into my basement. I fixed this problem by securing the discharge line, as you can see in one of the attached pictures. My second challenge was figuring out how to reposition the floats to allow a certain amount of water to remain in the sump pit so it wouldn't run constantly. You can remove the floats and re-position them up the pipe and clamp them back in place. It took a bit of experimenting to get this right, but after a bit my the floats are positioned just right. Of note, this pump is quiet compared to every other sump pump we have had and as a result I am going to order the Wi-Fi module to receive alerts. It's a bit unnerving not to hear the pump come on every once in a while. My first impressions are very positive and I highly recommend.

Right after it was installed, it sucked up the standing water in the basement quickly and it’s been keeping the basement very dry. I will not worry about raining seasons anymore.

Model # BW4000|Store SKU # 1001050193 Does the ½ HP Big Combo with backup system come with a battery box like the separate backup system?

Asked by: Joel
The one I purchased a while back hich I still have came with a box cover to store a battery and protect it from whatever. The Battery is sold separately. The required Battery to get the full maintence alert experience is very expensive unless you purchase other brands.

Will this pump work for a sump pit that pumps grey water from a washing machine?

Asked by: derkydoo
Can't see why not, as long as the float has enough water to start up. It drains our sump pit very quickly, so should work.

Does this product come with a battery? Thanks

Asked by: William
No. But make sure you get a heavey duty slow trickle battery. I think the best battery is a 'marine' battery, not an auto battery. A battery-only shop like BatteryBoy is best, they are the experts. A department store battery is not the best unless it is specified for 'sump pump' use only. A farm supply company might also have this type of battery.

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. 
Answered by: Hope it helps
