  1. Done. Thanks!

    Done. Thanks!

    I was actually wrong about the pump not being able to empty the sink. The pump, even with a full sink and cycling on/off, is able to keep up with the washer, so I think I'm done unless all this...
  3. Hydromatic HPUSP125 bad switch? Brand new pump cycles on/off when sink is full

    I have a utility sink in the basement which the washing machine drains into. I just installed this sink and used a Hydromatic HPUSP125 pump on the recommendation of another forum member.

    The...

    Ok, this is strange. If I plug the pump in correctly (switch first, then the pump into the back of the switch outlet), the pump cycles on/off when the sink is full, and can't empty the sink. If I...

    That seems to be exactly what the company is suggesting in the manual, but I'm going to try opening the discharge ball valve all the way.

    After re-reading the instructions, (smack self in the head) you might be on to something. Here's what the pump manual says:


    Adjusting The Flow

    The drain pump can pump up to 27 gallons per...

    My lift is about 5' and I am using 1-1/4" pipe, which ties into a horizontal wye that goes to the 3" horizontal waste stack. The pump lags pretty far behind the washing machine. The manual for the...

    So this solution works, sort of. The pump is too slow to keep up with the washer drain, and can't empty the sink in time before it fills completely up and overflows. If I set the washer to do a...

    Yes, that Hydromatic pump comes with a check valve. Thanks again for your help, I've ordered everything and will be installing this week.
  10. Wow, that's a great suggestion, and that pump is...

    Wow, that's a great suggestion, and that pump is a good brand, and cheaper than the Zoeller that I was looking at anyway. What's the downside to this pump, or should I say, why would someone buy a...

    After some conversations with a couple old timers, I'm now more certain that the sump is draining into the yard underground and not into the city sewer, which means I'm going to want to drain the...

    Excellent, thanks! I will be cleaning the tank tomorrow evening ( we have possession of the house, but don't move in until July 27).

    Doh! Thanks for your response, I really appreciate the help.

    The only picture I have of the sump setup is here :

    PM sent. Thanks a million!

    Also, you mentioned measuring the tank, I did some research on what to do with this thing, but I didn't read anything about measuring the tank - do I need to measure...
  15. New to water softeners, can anyone tell me about this unit? Aquatec? (pics)

    I just bought a house, and it was a foreclosure/flip so I have no contact with the previous owner. We have well water and city sewer. There is a water softener in the basement, but I know nothing...
  16. HELP! Previous owner was draining washing machine into sump pit. No drain. (pics)

    I just purchased this home, and have well water and city sewer. During the home inspection, I didn't even notice that there was no drain for the washing machine. I can only assume that the previous...
