I have a very high water table and as a result the pump cycles 365 days a year and depending on amount of rain can go off as often as two or three times per minute. I have had to replace the pump four times in the last five or six years always due to the switch burning out. My well is 18 in and I wish I had opted for a 24 in well because it would significantly reduced the number of cycles. My major complaint is that Little Giant must develope a better and stronger switch system. Thankfully my battery backup has done its job when the switch burns out without any warning.
Great little pump
Looks well made and well regarded. Very quiet. Instructions could be better if it specified how long a 1 1/2" pipe needed after the npt female adapter. Only regret. The original model from Little Giant was made in USA, this one made in China.
Is the float adjustable so that it will shut off with 2" of water?

The float of this pump models is non-adjustable. If you need a models which will shut off at about 2", then you may want to look at Little Giant 506158 model.
