Hi, yes and i suggest you dig the hole deep enough to set the basin on some 1.5" thick "patio blocks" for support..

Take care

Pump continuosly runs after water is cleared out of basin


The problem is with the float switch. I have attached the manual. There is probably something keeping the float from falling back down. Check you sump basin and make sure nothing (including the power cord) is interfering with float.

Oil will not feed to chain.sump is full.


The out let hole can get plugged with sawdust. Drain sump,remove chain and bar.Wrap a clean rag around a compressed air nozzle and pump in some air,not recommended for plastic sumps.You can use a piece of wire or a small dull drill bit or a torch tip cleaner from a welding supply.

Pumb only pumps a small amount out of the basin. Float needs adjusting to go all the way down and empty the basin. How do you adjust the float/bulb to travel farther down without shutting off after only a...


Flotec website shows several submersible sump pumps, and pump types:
http://www.flotecpump.com/asp/productapplication.asp?AId=28

Click product, then click on 'parts and literature' to access manual
Here is a Flotec manual:
http://www.flotecpump.com/pdf/FP525%2811-1-06%29.PDF

Manual for this type of sump pump says:
Quote from manual: Automatic float switch is sealed and factory adjusted for
most home sumps. Turn-on water level is 10" - 12" above
pump base. Turn-off water level is 4" - 6".

The manual also says that running the pump when dry will ruin the seals.
This implies that the water level setting is set so the seals will not be damaged

You might be able to dig the sump deeper, but I don't know if that meets your objective.
