    29 views and nobody has an opinion on Coleman pumps?

    By comparison, the Ridgid made by Wayne, has a three year warranty.

    In the past, I would wait until the pump in the hole failed before buying a new one otherwise a new pump in the box could run out of warranty before it went in the hole. With a lifetime warranty that is no longer a factor.

    I am not familiar with Coleman/Franklin. I would stay away from "Big Box" store brands such as Simers, Flotec, Rigid, etc. Sure they carry a "lifetime warranty" but my last lifetime pump lasted 3 months and I was replacing it at 2am with water pouring into the pit. Stick with Zoeller, Liberty, Hydromatic, Stevens. I also have no experience with pedestal pumps, always use submersible. As in most pumps, the switch will quit long before the pump dies.

    Hey admin, how about a "sump, sewage and effluent pump" forum.

    I was not aware any of those had a lifetime warranty. I realize it might not be worth the paper it is written on.

    Franklin Electric has been making pump motors for other pump manufacturers such as Goulds. They have acquired quite a few other pump makers over the years.
