Question about Water ACE SUBMERSIBLE SUMP PUMP 1/3 HP
15 year old sump, works fine. Should I replace?
There are 2 schools of thought regarding maintenance: you can carry out preventive maintenance (calendar based or hours run)... or, on condition maintenance... i.e repair it when it breaks down. What, is the consequence of a failure... if it's 'bad' replace it.... if not, wait until it fails. Hope this makes sense.

Just wanted to share my fix story. A couple of years ago I had a problem with my zoeller sump pump to turning on but it would if I ever so lightly tapped it or the discharge pipe. Naturally I suspected the switch and replaced it with the same results. I ended up zip tying a piece of foam to the float and bingo! This worked great for awhile until the foam loosened and got stuck. So back to the drawing board. I noticed on a parts list that zoeller recommends changing the float arm when replacing the switch. Put in a new float arm and it works great! No foam needed. I never thought to replace it in the first place because the old one moved fine but when compared to the new arm the new one is much smoother. I was able to remove the old arm with channel lock pliers and the new piece is press fit with some loctite #609 that came with it. Hope this helps!
