Characteristics of the Model 49 Sump Pump

  • Oil-filled, hermetically sealed motor with automatic reset thermal overload protection.
  • It has a strong cast iron housing with a corrosion resistant baked enamel finish on the motor … of course, with its characteristic green color …
  • The motor has a good heat sink.
  • Features a glass-filled polypropylene base and screenless pump housing
  • Has a 3/8 ”(9.5 mm) spherical solid pass
  • The Float Switch included in the package is highly reliable, so as we have said before, this is one of the parts that should be checked if something goes wrong, it is likely that on Zoeller models, it is not something that fails.
