Reply to "Sewage pumps premature failure"

So 1000 gpm 5 min =200 gpm required, do you know if you have 3 phase or 1 phase wiring

Little Giant pump model you supplied, below is "single phase 3 wire cord" note N/R means not recommended to operate in this range

Below is the "three phase 4 wire cord" curves, it too states 10' is N/R, depending on model of pump

Is the pump removing the water from the pit? Are you verifying the correct direction of rotation before you put pump in the pit? Do you have any upside down "U's" in you discharge pipe where air can get trapped? Is your pit vented to atmosphere? Your math may work on paper but in the field you have to prove your math works
