This Is The Bad Boy To Buy!
I did some research before buying, and I've come to the conclusion that this is the best pump available at a great price. It has features that others do not, such as: The 1/4 turn quick release outlet fitting, Oil resistant tank, Easy snap off reservoir tank (instead of being screwed together), Operational testing lever, Separate safety switch module for easy configuring, and it's QUIET! I said QUIET for all the people who put so much emphasis on the sound of the thing. The Beckett brand that gave out after 20 years was noisy. I could hear it from the next room every time it turned on, but not this pump. This Little Giant VCMX-20ULST is a very smooth running unit. It's also built like a tank. It's probably 50% heavier than the Beckett brand it replaced. The Little Giant VCMX-20ULST makes it look like a toy. Any condensate pump of similar design is a very simple device: There aren't any reciprocating pistons or valves. It's a simple motor that spins an impeller fast enough to sling the water ariound and out of the outlet valve, and a couple of switches and floats. As smooth and quiet as this one is, I expect it to last at least as long as the original pump, especially since it can be cleaned much more easily than most pumps that are screwed together. If you take the time to compare for yourself, you'll see that this is a unique pump with a lot of useful features. [...]
