Question about Flotec 3.4 Hp Floodmate Submersible Sump Pump

1 Answer

We have a Flotec 3/4 HP submersible pump, it was already here when we moved in, we have lived here for 3 yrs, so we dont know how old it is. After living here for 2 yrs, it started to get very noisy, like a groaning noise. We replaced it w/ a l/2 HP Wayne(our mistake) We got water in the basement b/c the wayne pump quit running. We put the Flotec back on. Trying to find a replacement, but stores are all out. Question is, do you think we can rely on the Flotec that is making the strange noises? Thanks, Chris

Flotec Float switch did not automatically shut off,enginburn out


Hi Lamont .. I would first check test the float switch and make sure that it is faulty, set it up in a tub of water and manually move the float switch. see if it cycles on and off. sometimes the float will get hung up on its support or on the edges of the sump pit. If the float switch is faulty then YES it can be replaced,. try a building supply store like home depot or the pl;ace where you got the switch originally.

What size submersible pump do i need to deliver 20000l/hr ,pump is 50 meter deep in bore hole.


That's a lot of water. In the U.S. , pumps are rated in GPM (gallons per minute. Your 20000 liters per hour converts to 88 GPM. So you need to find a pump that can produce at least 88 GPM.

Switching off too soon.


you don't need to replace the switch just raise the upper stop up higher so the float can go higher before turning the pump on, it should have a rubber gromet on it slide it up the rail
