Question about Genius Wayne Submersible Sump Pump With Switch
I installed two of these fancy new switch having pumps from Wayne in two seprate sumps. One of them works flawlessly. It seems to turn on a little earlier than I'd like, but it turns off before the pump cavitates. The second pump, in a seprate but equal sized sump cavitates for at least 10 seconds on every cycle. This time of year, it cycles about every minute.
I'm thinking about mechanically mounting the switch higher in the sump somehow, perhaps with some zip ties.
Has anyone contacted Wayne about this issue?
I'm assuming the switch in Question is a Float-switch that is positioned in-line of the Power-supply to the Pump. The hinge that activates the switch inside the Float could be faulty. You can check it by connecting a dif-
ferent device to the plug, activate the switch
(Float upright) and deactivate (Float horizontal)
Mounting the switch with zip ties is a good
idea.The Float should be dangeling about 3"
above the Pumphead, thus keeping it submersed. Hope it helps.
