Is this the backup you have from Zoeller?
The 2 reviews both mention about it not shutting off properly and that kind of scared me off, which is why I'm leaning towards the battery backup option instead.
I realize that I am late to the party, but for anyone with serious or significant ground water issues, they should consider using a sewage ejection pump instead of a sump pump. They are much faster and generally more durable than sump pumps.
