We bought this combo in 2017 and saw the aluminum case of the primary pump disintegrate by the third year. Prior to that, we had a similar Basement Watchdog combination unit, which lasted only a year or so longer before that primary pump disintegrated. I had hoped the first situation was an anomaly, but apparently not. Both times, the plastic backup pumps looked dirty, but were not shedding their case metal like the primary pumps. I suspect that the rapid deterioration may be because (due to the legacy plumbing in our older home) the pump is handling laundry water along with ground water. The pump we'd had prior to the Watchdogs (it was from a different manufacturer) had been uneventfully in place for over 8 years, though, so I am disappointed by the short lifespan of these units in the same conditions. I only replaced that 8+ year pump with the first combo unit because I liked the idea of having a backup and wanted to be proactive. I still do like the idea of having a backup, so I called Glentronics support to explore options. From talking to the support person, I got the impression that the pump on this combo unit is only intended to handle clean water (e.g. ground water.) The part of the case that eroded so badly is (I think) made of aluminum. He recommended their BWSS model, which is made of stainless steel. So, I just bought one of those and bought a new backup pump (BWE) separately. I assembled my own "combo", and am hoping the stainless steel model will give me more than 3 years.

    Does this system include a battery? Thanks

    Asked by: William
    Hi, the watchdog battery was a separate purchase. There were two compatible sizes, I chose the larger that could run for up to 2 days depending on usage. The price difference was minimum as well.

    I just install the sump pump tonight. Why do I always heard a sound that comes from the emergency pump (like it always running) but there is not enough water to even start the main pump ? Also, sometime, the green light just disappear like that..

    Asked by: wonderwhy
    Peut-être que vous êtes raccordé sur le 12 Volt seulement de la pompe de secoure en cas de panne de courant du 110Volts. Est-ce que vous avez vérifié si votre disjoncteur qui alimente ce circuit est débarqué?

    Why won't backup pump suck water. Motor just hums!

    Asked by: Gilles
    Is the intake on the pump completely submerged in water? That is where I would first look, especially if you think the pump is running.

    I purchased the watchdog sump pump with battery backup and after installation the main pump works fine but has a high pitch squeal when pumping .I read in the booklet it has a built in check valve and my line has a check valve could this be the problem

    Asked by: rubbs
    We do not recommend having another check valve in the discharge line above the system, as the system does have its own built-in check valves. This can cause several different problems. I would remove the check valve that you have in the line and replace it with a rubber union or a piece of rigid PVC pipe. If you still need assistance, or for more information, please contact our customer support team at 800-991-0466, option 3.

    I have my washing machine running into the water basin , Will this pump be able to handle the soapy water ? My old pump has no problem with this but it's time for a replacement and I would like to try this one if it works .

    Asked by: koolkatz
    Our pumps are not recommended for use in a well that contains soap or any other chemicals. They are intended for use with clear, ground or rain water. The soap tends to build up and causes the float switch to get stuck. Regular maintenance will help to avoid this situation. A pump with a vertical switch would probably work much better in your application. Should you have any other questions, please feel free to call our Technical Support Team at 1-800-991-0466, Option 3. We appreciate your interest in our products.
