My sewage pump has finally stopped working entirely. It was a low-end builder model zoeller...plastic housing, the model number 211. It is a 4/10 hp.
This pump lasted 6 years pumping clear water to a 9ft head.
My future needs will be a bathroom with a shower, and maybe a wet bar....hopefully in three years the basement and bathroom will be finished.
I was looking at similar pumps and thought about the Zoeller M264 or the M267. The M264 is cast iron and 4/10 hp, and the M267 is 1/2 hp....$280 vs $350...a $70 difference.
Does hp have any indication how long the pump will last?
Will either of these pumps be stressed by one lightly used basement bathroom, floor drain and possible wet bar?
Thanks for the advice...unfortunately $$ is a factor, but so is the hassle of replacing a sewage pump ESPECIALLY once the bathroom is in and the pit IS full of sewage and not just ground water...lol
