All accessories for a typical installation, except for the battery, are included. Each pump kit includes:
Additional parts and tools needed:
Each model connects to the primary sump pump discharge pipe 2-3 feet above the floor. This means the pump is a breeze to install, usually without removing the primary pump. Except in rare cases, all your connections are made above the floor, not down inside the sump.
Make sure there is a good-quality, fully functioning main check valve well above the primary pump but below the backup discharge T- connection.
The pump installation is a breeze! Main steps:
If there is a sump pump cover, cut out a hole for the RH1400 suction pipe.
The PVC suction piping for RH1400 includes a 1-1/2 ft. section for insertion into the pit, an elbow, and a 1-ft. section for the horizontal distance from the pit. The bottom of the suction pipe must remain submerged when the primary pumps empties the pit. The piping can be cut as needed or substituted with longer piping, providing the overall suction height does not exceed 4 ft.
