Question about Plumbing

1 Answer

I have a Simer Super Mark II Submersible Sump Pump Model 2957 Laundry Pump System. It's a few years old and the Check Valve has failed. Looks like the check valve had a rubber hinge that has torn apart leaving the check valve loose and in operationable. What I need to know is if the check valve is glued on to the pump body or just screwed on. If screwed on, I'll try to loosen but if it's glued on, I don't want to force it and break it. Any thoughts on the best way to fix this problem? Thanks

I have a Simer 2305 and the pump will run but does not when the water is low?

Pumps such as the Simer 2305 do not pump water totally down to ground level. They are designed so they do not suck up debris , sediment, etc, which can clog and ruin the pump. So if your pump leaves an inch or so of water, that is normal.

Mark II The unit ran for 30 minutes and shorted blowing the circuit breaker

I don't have too much advice for you. The pump only draws 6 amps and most breakers are 15 amps or more. There is also a thermal overload that if the pump gets hot it will open the circuit, preventing the circuit breaker from opening.
Did the pump actually short? Maybe it is finished. How old is it?

How can I adjust the float?

You can't adjust the flost on those pumps... there is a magnetic switch that turns the pump on when the float gets to the top...

The only way to adjust the water level is to adjust the hieght of the whole pump...

Won't turn off

The flow switch on the top where the float stem is attached is either fused together or there is something holding it in the closed position.Some of there are hermetically sealed to prevent debris from entering. parts can be ordered online.

I have a Campbell and Hausfeld submersible pump,and the pump comes on every 8 minutes, pumps out for 5 minutes, then shuts off. Trying to find out if the float switch is going bad before buying a new pump.

Is the pump pumping out water when it comes on? If it is than it may be running as it is designed and you may want to look in to why you are getting so much water in the sump. Once the sump is filled to high enough level it will run the pump until the water level is at a low enough level. In other words the ON level switch is much higher than the OFF level switch.

My simer model 3986 ocaisionally does not start, is there anything that needs to be cleanded or lubricated with the switch mechanism?

Does yours have a float or internal switch on the bottom to turn it on ...

If the switch is in the bottom, the hole that allows water in (to create pressure to activate the switch to turn on the pump is dirty and/or clogged) Clean it.

I hope this solves your trouble

What kind of is used in a simer submersible

The Simer brand of submersible dewatering pumps rely on being fully submersed in water for proper cooling and for the seals to remain water tight and effective.

According to the manufacturer, there is no oil used in the pump, other than a very small amount that was used in assembling the pump at the factory, so you shouldn't oil the pump, but rather follow the recommendations as to making sure the pump is installed properly.

Here's the owners manual for your particular pump (Model #2300) so you can check the troubleshooting FAQ's and so you can also contact the manufacturer, should you need replacement parts or need to make a warranty claim, etc.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Flotec Sump Pump Tethered Float - Float seems faulty. Easy fix?

it sounds like it could be a bad float switch but most of the time the water isn't high enough for the pump to turn on. it takes alot of water to turn on a tethered float. the other pumps they sell at lowes with a real float (like the one in the toilet) are adjustable and also replicable. .
