    Much as I love my Zoeller condensate pump on my AC, it is a noisy little bugger.

    Consequently I am thinking about getting a new one.

    The Little Giant NXTGen VCMX-20UL sounds as though it might be quite good and quieter.

    Any comments?

    They have a good reputation down here. That's also the mfr. we spec for projects.

    Thanks Mr Orange. Even though some of the worst plumbing I ever saw was in Key West ;), I decided to take your advice.

    After installing the new pump I can confirm that this:

    is better than this:

    in every single way.

    It's quieter, has a three-prong plug, thicker electrical cable and better designed everywhere.

    RE: Key West - Old Florida plumbing is as good as old Georgia plumbing. ;)
