The higher you pump the water, the stronger your pump needs to be, or the skinnier your hose needs to be. A lower discharge point and / or a smaller diameter hose might help immensely.

My pump will not shut off


check the float assembly for freedom of movement. A jammed float will give a false indicator to the pump.

The is no water in the hole where the sump pump so why is it still running?


Hi,
The float that turns the pump on and off is bad or stuck...
Pull the pump out and check the float... if it shuts off the find out what was holding it up...if it still runs the float is bad and will need to be replaced...

Pumps has power , want run


Is it under water, at least a foot deep?
Lift the float, does it start?
If you plug the pump directly into the outlet without the plug from the float, does it run?

Just purchased a home with water ace sump pump.


That's the idea; if you lift the float the water starts pumping because it works off of that float. That type of pump is usually meant for water that is in a tub or bucket, so that when the water reaches a certain height and causes the float to rise allowing the pump to kick on. I use a pump like that to pump our the drained water from my washing machine in my basement, i let the water go into a big 50 gallon drum and then once the drum is half full i have it set so the float rises and pumps out the water. That being said, if you are putting this in your basement at floor level, you would need to get a 10 gallon bucket meant for sump pumps (you can get one at your local home store) and rent a jackhammer if your basement is concrete and put the bucket in the floor and the sump pump in the bucket, this is called a sump pit. Another option is to get whats often called a "floor ******" pump. Its a pump that sucks the water out when it reaches around a half inch of depth and it can be used in several feet of water (I've used these as well, there is no float involved), and it can be set on level ground there is no sump pit needed. The one thing with my pump you may not want, is that it's constantly running because its constantly monitoring for water so that a lot of water will not build up (especially if water can damage some thing in the surrounding area) . You can check out all the types at your local home store.

My 1/2 HP WaterAce sump (R5S-1) runs but will not shut off


I found a replacement switch which is placed in series with the pump power plug. However when I removed the original switch and plunged the new switch I discovered that the pump motor spins but it does not pump. I installed a new pump.

Thanks!
