I have had my BW4000 for about 2 years now. I am using it in mix with the suggested battery. I hope this is a useful review, since it is depending on some years with this particular model. As I began to prepare to finish my basement 2 years ago, my friend’s recently finished basement was flooded with 2″ of water. His sump pump failed when the power went out while he was away on a business trip. His homeowners insurance covered the damage, however he did not gut it and start over, just whatever was observable damaged. Carpet. Drywall. The ordeal made him go get a secondary battery established pump. I wonder if he will have mold issues. In starting my project, I realized that I’d never checked my 10 year old sump. Never thought about it. Never considered it. But now with plans to put some big money into a remodel, it seemed like a no brainer to put some added protection there. I liked the dual pump combo solution since I wasn’t interested in seeing how long my builder’s quality pump could live. It was probably already beyond MTFB ranking. The pump was easy to install. “Drop it in” tighten two worm drive clamps. Easy peazy. The watchdog battery was not included, so I picked one up at a local big box. After to get it home, I really read the outside telling me that the acid was separate. Ugh. Ok, back to the big box store for the watchdog battery acid. I realize why they have to separate the product for hazmat and handling, however. It was a ache for someone who reads directions only after to get stuck. Filling the battery is most likely dangerous if you are not cautious. I put on my 3M respirator, my dewalt shades, and used some gloves. No spillage since there is a little adaptable pouring spout, easy to do.
We bought a house with a cheap pedestal pump that could barely put out half the ranking of this one ( this one’s main pump is rated for 3,200gph & backup pump rated for 1,730gph ). Over that I wanted to put in a submersible and put in an air tight cover for the sump – to stop a important leak of radon into the house. This unit fit in perfectly and was able to seal off the sump with a pretty flush cover. I installed this with Campbell Mfg Llc 1. 5″ Quietsump Chk Valve B-0823-15C Well Supply Accessories and both functioned great. I must say the 1st thing I noticed was the sound. I have had sumps in my homes since I can remember, and nearly all of them have been submersible. The Campbell check valve got rid of the common “hammer” sound when the flow stops, a thud that could echo during the whole house. But more importantly the motor running sound: In my last couple houses I could hear it so obviously during the house, that it nearly sounded like a garage door opening/closing. I built a box filled with sound bubble around my last one and it did little to stop the sound. This thing but – I can not hear standing 10ft from it. It surely does not have the deep bass motor sound that carries through the walls and floors like every other sump I have owned. Very calm. That alone was nearly worth this hefty price tag. Another thing I wanted out of my sump was redundancy. Previous to to get this I was thinking about putting in a dual submersible/pedestal setup, and maybe throwing the one with the higher water float on a UPS configuration.
It is costly but not almost as bad as having a basement flood while away on vacation. If you’re replacing a sump pump or if you’re adding a secondary pump this is the one to get. Everything is assembled already and you just have to connect it to the outlet pipe with the included rubber coupler. The information are amazing and there are information for removing the pump from the packaging to avoid damaging the more fragile parts of the pump. No need for an independent check valve as this unit will include one for each pump. Substitute parts seem to be available in case something fails.
