I called around for the Zoeller Simplex M267, and so far the range is between $500 - $650, and it costs the same to just get someone to install it so I'm not even going to bother with it, and leave it to the pros. Besides, I have enough projects to tackle with plumbing two new bathrooms, taking out an old one that is the size of a closet, additional water heater in series, etc... I never get why people install bathrooms in a tiny area.
Ron, I tried calling you to get an estimate. I left a message, call me back because Im trying to get this done ASAP.
Thanks for the help guys.
I knew just going with a pro wouldnt make my life any easier. So, I had a plumber come out today and I got the, "I need to figure out a price on this and I'll get back to you", so I know its going to be expensive. No pun intended, but I think I am going to have to do this myself as I originally planned.
Basically, the hole is only 16" deep, which is too shallow for a sealed unit to go in there, so I need to take out the other pump, get all the water and crap out, break up the concrete that is lining the bottom of the pit (hopefully there isnt any concrete, and since everything else with this basement wasnt done properly, it wouldnt surprise me), and install the new unit.
Going to tackle this tomorrow!!
BTW, Grainger sells the M267 for about $400, cash & carry. Letting a pro fix things does sound like a good plan though.
I guess I wasnt looking hard enough, but I finally found a plumbing supply store that sells the M267 for $310.
