    I would think the utility pumps would need to be under water to stay cool. Lesson learned should be 1) get a good quality back up in the crock, 2) avoid simer and flotec in the future

    Korky refill valves

    Are there any other valves other than Korky that will work in the Toto Drakes? I have to replace the Korky about once a year. Its not that expensive, but are there any other options out there?

    I am not sure about the capacity of the 1 1/2" line, but if you have a big enough pit, consider a dual pump system which alternates pumps.
