A semi-trash pump with hoses as listed typically retails for more than twice this amount. My expectations were therefore not all that high and but I only need the pump infrequently. So although I did have some trouble based on quality of construction, it came as no surprise and fortunately was not an insurmountable problem. I had to clean out the pump as the impellers had been fouled. There are 4 - 13mm bolts holding the aluminum housing together. One of them had been overtorqued at the factory and came out with aluminum threads of the backplate. On re-assembly, it was not possible to seal the housing enough to maintain suction for even 5 feet of lift. After scrounging around, I found a metric nut to put on the fouled bolt and was back in business. Some corners were cut like plastic tubes on the discharge hose fittings and a plastic strainer. I would suggest that the latter be replaced by a metal one as it also suffers from tiny holes (roughly 1/8). On the good side, the motor is one of the XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXX-XXXX which seems to be pretty solid, the frame is adequate, and the impeller and associated bowl are cast iron. When air-leaks were resolved, it pumped quite well for several hours without hiccup. So in my mind, it was well worth the price.
Great sewer pump. Arrived quickly. Cost a little more than same horse power pump at Home Depot but has a longer cord and looked like it was built better. Came bolted to plywood to protect the pump. All great.
