Heavy Duty and well made

Comments about Model M57 Mighty-Mate Automatic Cast Iron Effluent Pump - 115 V, 0.3 HP:

This was a replacement pump for an old pump which, while it worked, just could not move the volume of water that needed to be moved during a storm. This resulted in a flooded basement, even as the old pump kept chugging along. The old pump looked like a "toy" compared to this one! This pump is solid, and well made. It is relatively quite. It moves the water out of the sump pit quickly and efficiently. It was installed by our plumber, but it did not seem like a difficult job. The bottom of our sump pit has gravel and is uneven, so I got the optional pump stand which made it easier to get it level. It seems to be working well so far, and Zoeller pumps have a good reputation. Still Made in the USA, which is a bonus! This is now the third pump I have bought, replacing pumps in my father's home basement, as well as his office basement (those pumps were still working, but I didn't want to take a chance again. The only down side is that the cord is a bit short, so you need to have your socket close, so that you don't end up using an extension cord, which could lead to trouble later on. When I need another pump, this is the brand I would go for again without hesitation! Get the transparent PVC check valve too; it is much quieter than the metal ones, and you can see when the pump is working.

Smooth running so far!

Comments about Model M57 Mighty-Mate Automatic Cast Iron Effluent Pump - 115 V, 0.3 HP:

I bought two of these pumps to replace a single LittleGiant pump that we had in our basement. During a storm last year, while the pump kept chugging away, it just could not handle the volume of water, and so our basement had about 6 inches of water, enough to ruin everything on the floor. I got the Zoeller on the recommendation of our plumber, and while our sump was only 13 inches in diameter, it was deep enough for two pumps, one on top of the other. I also ordered the pump stand, which made it easier to install the second pump on top of the first one. Both pumps are on separate electrical circuits, so if one circuit blows, the second pump should keep going. The pumps are very quite, and empty the sump pit very quickly. I also got the clear "quiet" check valve. This allows me to see the water flowing, and it is quite! I am happy with the product so far. The next storm will tell the tale, but I think these pumps should hold up well, just looking at how they are built.

I replaced my old M57 pump with a new M57 after 18 years of use. It still worked fine but didn't want to take any chances.

Comments about Model M57 Mighty-Mate Automatic Cast Iron Effluent Pump - 115 V, 0.3 HP:

It's a bit premature for me to write a review of the product because luckily I haven't experienced any flooding since I installed it, but I can review Pexsupply. It was simple to order online.[...]

Sump Pump Gives Security

By Tony the Tiger

from Weston, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Model M57 Mighty-Mate Automatic Cast Iron Effluent Pump - 115 V, 0.3 HP:

About every five years, our basement would flood if it were not for the reliable Mighty-Mate pump. I installed it easily myself. I recommend testing it yearly with a hose, and to lubricate the float mechanism. The pump is so essential and relatively inexpensive that I replaced our original M57 after twenty years. The pump provides great peace of mind for me and my wife. Thanks.

    Q:

    what is the minimum diameter this pump requires?
    Asked on 3/11/2012 by Anonymous from yo. oh

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      This pump is intended to be used with 1-1/2" or 1-1/4" PVC. If you use it with smaller diameter tubing, it will still work but with a reduced flow rate.

      Answered on 3/12/2012 by Another PexSupply Customer
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

       1 1/2 inch. Anything less restricts the pump output (note that the pump has a 1 1/2 outlet) which requires more work on the part of the pump (increasing power cost and decreasing pump life) so that is what I use.

      1.5 inches (right on the box).

      A:

      1 1/2 inch inside diameter pipe is the recomended minimum for this pump..
       
      Instructions specify that pipe must be same size as outlet which is 1 1/2 inch diameter for this pump.

    Q:

    How do you lubricate the float?
    Asked on 5/1/2011 by tiger from d-minnesota

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      There is not a lubrication procedure for the floats. If the float is sticking due to mineral build up, the manufacturer suggests you soak the pump in a mixture of vinegar and water.
