thanks for the reply on my thread http://www.houserepairtalk.com/f33/s...ase-read-6874/
$1200 seems awfully a lot for replacing the main pump, adding backup pump and with a marine battery... But what do I know about how hard it is to install.
How long do Zoeller last? I am expending it to last at least 8 years? If so i'd be $150 a year for $1200 spent... otherwise, I might as well install a cheapo and replace it every other year at the same price.
northeastguy78, Please keep this in the open forum visitor messages are too hard to follow...
I installed a Zoeller pump in my mothers basement 27+ years ago and it is still going strong, your milage may vary. You need to ask yourself what the damage risk is with the contents of your basement. BTW waterheaters once submerged replacement is recommended...
Zoeller 1/3 hp pump my cost $130
Zoeller Aquanot II back up my cost $673
deep cycle agm battery My cost $200
Beware of lesser battery backups.
This system has both a main pump and backup which flow over 30 gpm with 10' lift.
Like I said the price if anything is cheap and I wonder what backup is being planned.
