Important
Safety Instructions
Never smoke or allow a spark or flame
in the vicinity of the battery.
General
Remove personal metal items such as
rings, bracelets, watches, etc. when
working with a lead-acid battery.
Do not expose the control unit to rain or
snow.
Pull the plug rather than the cord when
disconnecting the control unit.
An extension cord should not be used
unless absolutely necessary.
To reduce the risk of electric shock,
unplug the control unit and disconnect
the cables from the battery before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.
Do not disassemble the control unit.
When service is required contact
Glentronics technical support at (800)
991-0466, select option 3.
AC Power Requirements
The control unit must receive 115 volts
AC +/- 5% from the AC outlet. Any
voltage lower than this will cause the
power failure alarm to activate. Lower
voltages can be caused by utility
company brown outs or heavy power
draw from other appliances on the same
circuit.
Personal Precautions
Wear eye protection and avoid touching your eyes while working near the
battery.
If battery acid contacts skin or clothing,
wash immediately with soap and water.
If acid enters eye, immediately flood eye
with running cold water for at least 10
minutes and get medical attention.
Preparing to Charge
Charge only LEAD-ACID batteries with
the Pro Series 1000 control unit. Do not
use the control unit for charging dry-cell
batteries that are most commonly used
with home appliances.
Be sure the area around the battery is
well-ventilated.
Check the polarity of the battery posts.
The POSITIVE (+) battery post usually has a larger diameter than the
NEGATIVE (-) post.
Connect the large ring on the POSITIVE
(BLACK) wire from the control unit to
the POSITIVE (+) post of the battery.
Connect the small ring on the NEGATIVE (WHITE) wire from the control
unit to the NEGATIVE (-) post of the
battery.
When disconnecting the control unit,
first disconnect the charger, and then
remove the rings from the battery
terminals.
When cleaning or adding water to the
battery, gas can be forcefully blown
away by using a piece of cardboard or
other nonmetallic material as a fan.
Clean the battery terminals. Be careful
to keep corrosion from coming in contact with your eyes.
DC Connection Precautions
Connect and disconnect the battery
cable rings only after removing the
charger cord from the electric outlet.
Never allow the rings to touch each
other.
Coat the terminals with a thin coat of
petroleum jelly to retard corrosion.
Attach the rings on the ends of the
battery cables to the battery posts and
secure them with wing nuts to insure a
good connection.
Follow these steps when the battery is
installed. A spark near the battery may
cause a battery explosion. To reduce
the risk of a spark near the battery:

Introduction
The Pro Series 1000 backup sump
pump system is battery-operated. It is
designed as an emergency backup
system to support your regular AC sump
pump, and it will automatically begin
pumping if your main AC pump fails.
Should any malfunction or emergency
occur that involves the sump pump, the
battery, or the AC power, your Pro
Series 1000 battery backup sump pump
system will sound an alarm and indicate
the nature of the problem and the
solutions by means of a lighted display
on the control panel.

Pump & Pipe
Installation Instructions
3.
Place the pump with the 4’ PVC
pipe attachment on the bottom of
the sump floor next to the main AC
pump. Do not mount the pump to
any existing pipes...it should be
placed on the floor of the sump. A
brick may be placed under the
pump if there are rocks or other
debris on the sump floor.
(Direct Discharge to Outside)
There are two basic methods that can
be used to install the pump, (A) a direct
discharge to the outside of the building,
or (B) a hookup to an existing discharge
pipe.
Whenever possible, install your Pro
Series 1000 backup sump pump with a
direct discharge to the outdoors. By
using this method, there will always be
an outlet for the water from the sump.
During times of very heavy rain, many
storm sewers fill up. If your pump is
trying to discharge water into a full
sewer, there is nowhere for the water to
go. This defeats the purpose of the
backup system. By discharging directly
outdoors, there is always an outlet for
the water that is pumped out of the
sump.
There are two options for installing your
sump pump with a direct discharge to
the outside. If you have a sump pit wide
enough to place the backup pump next
to the main pump, use Method A. If your
sump pit is too narrow, the pump may be
mounted above the main pump. In this
instance use the instructions for Method
Aa.
4.
Attach a rubber union (sold separately) to the top of the 11/2" pipe.
This will allow the pump to be
removed easily, should the need
arise.
The path of the rest of the pipe and the
details of each installation will vary.
Using sound plumbing practices, try to
route the discharge pipe to an exterior
wall via the shortest path with the fewest turns. The pipe section exiting the
building should be on a downward slope
so that the water in the pipe will exit
outside rather than return to the sump.
Extend the discharge pipe outside the
building as far as possible to avoid the
return of discharged water to the sump.
Be sure to seal the hole in the wall
where the pipe exits and cement or
clamp all connections securely to
prevent leaking. No check valve is
needed with this method of installation,
as long as you use less than 20 feet of
pipe.

If the direct discharge method (Method
A) is not possible, the Pro Series 1000
backup sump pump system can be
hooked up to the same pipe as your AC
sump pump by installing a "Y" connector
and two check valves.
Check your local plumbing codes.
Some municipalities prohibit the discharge of sump water into the sewer
system.
If you have a sump pit wide enough to
place the backup pump next to the main

Battery Instructions
The Pro Series 1000 Standby Battery has
been designed to run this system for a
minimum of 6 hours of continuous pumping. However, most of the time the pump
will turn on and off, and the battery will
run the pump intermittently for days. In
addition, the unique materials in the
battery enable it to last longer...for five to
seven years in standby service. To extend
the run time of the pump, use the Pro
Series 2200 Standby Battery. It will run
this pump continuously for 12 hours.
The use of automotive batteries is not
recommended. Automotive batteries are
not designed for this application. They will
only run the pump for a short time and will
have a shorter life than a standby battery.
In addition, the battery fluid sensor and cap
are designed to fit the Pro Series batteries.
(As a safety precaution, do not use the cap
on batteries of a different brand, and do not
drill a hole in the cap of another brand of
battery to accommodate the sensor.)
PREPARING THE PRO SERIES
STANDBY BATTERY
The Pro Series standby batteries are shipped
dry (without acid) so they will never lose
power before you take them home. A
battery is activated when the acid is added,
and then it slowly begins to deteriorate as it
ages. By adding the acid just before use,
the battery will always be fresh. Use 1.265
specific gravity battery acid to fill the battery.
It is available where you purchased the
battery.
IMPORTANT: REVIEW THE
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE YOU PROCEED
1. Place the battery box on the floor.
Position the battery box safety strap
Page 7
under the box and through the loop on
the top of the battery box.
2. Place the dry (unfilled) battery into the
battery box. Remove the foil seal on the
top of the battery.
3. (a) Carefully push in the perforated tab
at the top of the acid pack. Pull up the
large tab and pull out the dispensing
hose. Hold the hose upright above the
pack and squeeze the hose forcing all
the acid back into the pack. Cut off the
tip of the hose. (b) Position the acid
pack and battery as shown in picture 3b.
Insert the end of the hose into each cell.
Control the flow by pinching the hose
with thumb and forefinger. Fill each cell
of the battery to a level just covering the
battery plates, then go back and top off
each cell equally. It is important to have
the cells filled equally. (c) The acid
should reach a level just below the cap
ring. (Diagram C)
A newly filled battery will sometimes
require additional acid after about ten
minutes. Re-examine the fill level and
add additional acid, if necessary. The
battery acid may bubble at this time and
give off a sulfur-like smell, but this is
normal. After the battery has been filled,
screw the caps on the top of the battery.

are two holes in the battery cap. Insert
the fluid sensor in the hole that is offcenter on the top of the cap. Do not
glue the sensor into the cap. If you are
not using a Pro Series Standby
Battery, you cannot use the battery
fluid sensor. However you must attach
the sensor to the POSITIVE (+) post
of the battery or the alarm will sound
continuously. The Pro Series Sump
Pump System will not warn you if the
fluid level is low in this configuration.
You will need to check your battery
monthly to see if it needs water.
When you position the control unit, be
sure the charger cord will reach the AC
power outlet and the pump cable and the
float switch will reach the bottom of the
sump. Position the unit in a well-ventilated area. (Diagram D)
1.
Mounting the control unit: (a)
Thread the plastic wire tie through
the two mounting brackets on the
back of the control unit. (b) Secure
the controller to the discharge pipe of
the Pro Series pump by wrapping the
tie around the pipe and pulling it tight.
2.
Positioning the float switch: The
float switch will turn on the pump
when the water rises to the top of the
switch, and it will remain running as
long as the water is above the float
switch. When the water drops below
the float, the internal timer in the
control unit will keep the pump
running an additional 30-40 seconds
to empty the sump pit. The switch
should be mounted six inches (6")
above the activation level of the main
AC pump. Attach the float switch very
securely to the discharge pipe of the
backup pump with the plastic wire
tie. (If you are stacking the pumps in
a narrow sump pit, the float may be
attached to the elbow of the backup
pump.) Be sure the switch is positioned vertically with the mounting
bracket at the top. Do not tilt the
switch. Do not position the float switch
on the side of the discharge pipe
facing the drain tile or any incoming
rush of water! Do not position it next
to the power cord of the AC pump.

Installing the battery fluid sensor:
Replace the battery cap that is 2nd
from the POSITIVE (+) post of the
battery with the battery cap that is
provided in the Pro Series sump
pump package. An arrow on the top of

Hooking up the pump: Plug the
pump wires into the pump connector
on the back of the control unit.
5.
Hooking up the battery: Remove
the wing nuts. Coat the terminals
with a little petroleum jelly to prevent
corrosion. Attach the battery cables
to the battery...the BLACK wire to the
POSITIVE (+) post, the WHITE wire
to the NEGATIVE (-) post. Tighten
the wing nuts.
6.
Immediately plug the charger into the
charger hole on the back of the control
unit and into an AC outlet on the wall.

POWER ALARM
There are several causes for power
failure. The most common is a power
outage by your electric company. During
this emergency, the Pro Series 1000
Sump Pump System will automatically
switch to battery power and protect your
basement from flooding.
If the power is on in the rest of the house,
check the home circuit breaker or fuse
box for failure, and correct the problem.
water is not available, tap water with a
low mineral content may be used. Well
water is not recommended. Never add
more acid. Fill the battery to the 2nd
level as shown in Diagram C on page 7.
Replace the caps and the fluid sensor.
Be sure the fluid sensor is positioned in
the 2nd cell from the positive post. It’s
marked with an arrow on the top of the
battery. The warning light will turn off
automatically when the battery is refilled.
Check the charger. Make sure it is
securely plugged into the wall outlet.
If this warning light and alarm are on,
you need to add distilled water to the
battery.
IMPORTANT: REVIEW THE
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE YOU PROCEED

Unscrew the six battery caps. Add
distilled water to each cell. If distilled
1. Unplug the pump from the back of
the control unit.
2. Release the rubber union or check
valve and remove the pump and the
rigid PVC pipe section from the
sump.
4. Lower the pump into the sump and
reconnect the rubber union or check
valve.
The control unit must receive 115 volts
AC +/- 5% from the AC outlet. Any
voltage lower than this will cause the
power failure alarm to activate. Lower
voltages can be caused by utility
company brown outs or heavy power
draws from other appliances on the
same circuit.

REPLACING THE PUMP
3. Unscrew the pipe and fitting from the
old pump and screw them into the
new pump.
Check the charger plug that fits into the
rear panel of the control unit. Make sure
it is securely plugged into the control unit.
If all the connections are secure and the
wall outlet is operating, but the "Power"
warning light is still lit, replace the
charger unit. Contact Glentronics, Inc.
for a 400mA charger at 800-991-0466.
After determining the source of the
problem, push the gray button to silence
the alarm.
5. Plug the pump wires into the back of
the control panel.
PUMP ALARM
The "Pump" warning stays on to alert you
to the fact that the Pro Series backup
pump was used to empty water from the
sump. Try to determine what caused the
system to operate. Check the main pump
for failure. Another possibility is that the
power was out while you were away and
the backup system automatically
pumped the water out of the sump. Or, if
the incoming water was more than your
AC sump pump could handle, then the
backup system automatically pumped
the water out of the sump. It is also
possible that your check valve is stuck
and needs to be replaced.

For a fast recharge, an automotive or

recharge the battery. When another
charger is used, you must disconnect
the control unit from the battery.
BATTERY ALARM
TO CHECK FOR CABLE OR
TERMINAL PROBLEMS

This light and alarm will go on when the
control unit senses that the battery has
approximately 1⁄2 hour of pumping
energy left. This could occur when the
pump has been running for many hours
and is reaching the last half hour of
operating power, or it could occur
because the battery is getting old and
should be replaced.

CHARGER OPERATING
This green light should always be
flashing. It indicates that the charger is
operating and that all connections are
intact. If for any reason the AC power is
interrupted, or a plug comes loose, this
light will go off, the RED "Power" light
will appear, and an alarm will sound.
Check the charger. Make sure it is
securely plugged into the wall outlet.
Check the charger plug that fits into the
rear panel of the control unit. Make sure
it is securely plugged into the control
unit.
If all connections are secure and the
wall outlet is operating, but the "Power"
The alarm can also be triggered by
corrosion of the battery cable and the
battery terminals. Remove the battery
cables and clean and tighten the battery
terminals as described at the right. If
this warning goes on while the pump is
running, you will have a minimum of 1⁄2
hour to replace the battery. (In most
cases, the pump does not run continuously, and therefore, you actually have
much longer.) In a severe emergency, if
a replacement battery is not available,
you could temporarily use your car
battery.
Once the AC power is restored, the
battery will recharge, unless it is old or
damaged. The alarm will go off when
the AC power is restored and the
pumping energy reaches 1⁄2 hour or
more.
In the event that your Pro Series Sump
Pump System has been called on to
pump for extended periods of time, the
battery can become very depleted. In
this condition, when the AC power is
restored, a "Battery" alarm will continue
to sound. The battery may need a
longer period to recharge.

water to enter the battery. Thoroughly dry the posts and apply a thin
coat of petroleum jelly or another
terminal protective material.

REPLACING THE BATTERY
TESTING THE FLOAT SWITCH
PARTS & SERVICE INFORMATION
IMPORTANT: REVIEW THE
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE YOU PROCEED
Manually testing the float switch
periodically is highly recommended.
Lift the float up and let go. This will
activate the pump. The control unit will
run the pump for approximately 40
seconds so it can empty all the water in
the sump pit. If there is no water in the
sump, the pump can run dry for this
amount of time. The alarm will sound
and the pump light will go on. After the
pump has stopped, push the gray button
to silence the alarm. If the gray RESET
button is pressed before the pump has
stopped, the alarm will go off temporarily. Wait for the pump to stop
pumping, and then push the RESET
button to completely silence the alarm.
