flotec utility pump replacement


Hi all. I was trying to find a replacement flotec pump 1/3 hp for a laundry discharge basin but I am having trouble finding the right one. I see a lot of utitech pumps but I am not sure of their quality. Anyone familiar with these pumps? I'm thinking I may have to go to a plumbing supply to get a quality pump. Any thoughts on a good pump would be appreciated. Thanks

I always prefer the plumbing supply warehouses over big box stores. The counter guys have a lot of knowledge if you don't act like a d***.

The pump selection at the big box stores is usually pretty limited and miserable

Agree and if your washer does not have a lint filter, consider a sewer pump which can pass the solids a lot better.

Flo tech pumps just feel cheap. I like these for laundry rooms. Usually I dump the machine into a sink and drain the sink into the pump. It's not s sewer ejector pump so if you're not using anything to stop the lint you need to clean the inlet filter probably once a month. Four screws and five minutes to do.
