Do not turn the pump on until all the fittings are glued and the glue has dried. Loose fittings can explode off the pipes and cause personal injury and flooding. The Battery Back-up Sump System is not a substitute for your primary sump pump. It is designed to temporarily back up your primary sump pump during a power outage or other problem which prevents normal operation of the primary pump. Do not use this system to pump flammable liquids or chemicals. Pump clear water only with this pump. Keep Hacksaw 24M Deep or a 27M Deep and 10. Make sure sump is clear of debris.

The system has a 70 hour safety timer. If the power to the charger circuit is interrupted, the length of time that the backup pump will run depends on the Ampere-hour capacity of the battery used, the battery charge level, the required vertical pumping distance, and the size of the sump. • To reset the charger simply unplug it from the 120V outlet for 10 seconds and then plug it back in. BATTERY Extended periods of operation (for example, during an extended power outage) may exhaust the battery. The battery charger will begin charging the battery as long as the battery has a voltage differential of 3 Volts or more.

Continuous Yellow LED light: Constant current charge stage. Charger is charging battery at the full rated output. Ratings current. Use of a standard automobile battery with this charger is not recommended. An automobile battery may require charging after only 1-2 hours of continuous use, and the repeated charging cycles may cause early plate failure in the battery. 1. Flashing yellow LED light: Battery prequalification test stage. Normal duration of this stage is from 40 seconds to 3 hours. TABLE IlI - Capacity electrical Your backup sump pump depends on the battery used with it for power. The better the battery, the better the performance of the pump. We recommend the use of a size 27M Deep Cycle Marine Battery or a size 24M Deep Cycle Marine Battery. They will perform as indicated in Table III, below, and stand up well to long periods of little or no use. NOTICE: All LED's will illuminate once the AC power has been applied. They will not light up if the charger is not plugged in. The RED LED will remain on continuously to indicate power to the charger. See Figure 6. 2. REQUIREMENTS vere burns and start a fire if battery terminals are short circuited. Install battery in a battery box (See Key No. 10, Page 9). To prevent accidental shorting across battery terminals. strap cover securely (See Figure 7) on the battery box. Do not leave battery uncovered. Do not allow children to play around the battery backup system installation. It will take approximately 43 hours to fully recharge a 24M battery in a "discharged battery condition". The approximate recharge time for the 27M battery is 58 hours. Industrial standards define a "discharged battery condition" as 10.5 Volts or less.

Check that automatic switch is free to swing up and down. 4. Check for blown fuse in the junction box of the system. Motor hums but pump won't run: 1. Check for low or defective battery. Pump runs but pumps very little or no water: 1. Make sure a check valve is installed and functioning between primary pump discharge and Backup Sump Pump tee. 2. Check for obstruction in discharge pipe. 3. Discharge pipe length and/or height exceeds capacity of pump. See Table III, Page 7, for pump capacity. 4. Check for low or defective battery. 5. Positive (+) and negative (-) w'tres reversed. Pump cycles ton frequently: 1. The tether length too short on automatic float switch. Make sure that tether is at least 3" (76mm); see Figure 3, Page 5. 2. The main check valve located between discharge of primary pump and the Backup Sump Pump tee is not instailed or working properly.
