  • 8-CIA, 4/10 HP, 45 GPM - Automatic Submersible Sump Pump, 10ft power cord

    Q:

    How deep does the water have to be to turn on the pump on automatic? My back yard is prone to flooding and I was thinking about putting this pump in a five gallon bucket that has been set in at ground level.

      A:

      I did in fact test mine in a HD 5gal bucket when I got it just to make sure it worked and it came on fine. That's the one and only time it has ever been used as I have this pump as a backup in my sump pit. However, my main pump is identical 8 series, only in bronze. It has been flawless in the last 12 years and comes on when the water level is about 7 inches over the top of the pump. No adjustments can be made to this pump which is automatic all the time working off a pressure switch. That means no worrying about debris clogging the switch though you do have to make sure stuff doesn't get sucked into the intake.

      And the other thing to think about in a flood zone, is the electrical situation when the entire area is submerged in water. I would consult with your municipal electrical code official about that.

      A:

      You can download the manual for this pump from the Little Giant website. You can also telephone them for technical assistance.
      But why not install a regular sump pit, instead of the five gallon bucket?
