    1. Zoeller used to only give a one year warranty from date of install or 18 months from the manufacture date. Then Zoeller has increased their warranty to 3 years from the manufacture date.
    2. Liberty has always given a 2 year warranty from the date of install and as of last year increased it to 3 years from the date of install.
    3. Zoeller has had issues back in the 1980s and recently with malfunctioning switches.
    4. Zoeller uses a very thin flat gasket to seal the switch housing to the pump.
    5. Liberty has not had any major switch malfunctions other than normal wear and tear.
    6. Liberty uses an o ring to seal the switch housing to the pump.

    I carry two 287's on my truck.
