It sounds good, how long has the Co been making them. Zoeller and Basepump are the ones I heard of. Zoeller has been in business a while. Sure beats a battery set up.

It works as long as you don't need it to pump too much water over too high a head.

I just bought a "Sump Buddy" by Bur-Cam [in Quebec Tel:(514)337-4415 ] from Home Depot for $99 USD. HD doesn't have it on their website, but I found it in 2 different [upstate NY] HDs.
It is made of mostly plastic, with brass fittings and rubber parts. [2 yr warranty]
If I'm reading the Basement Buddy specs right, the Sump-Buddy is making a slightly lower GPH claim.
I *Think* the Basement Buddy is saying that at 5' of head it discharges a total of 1000GPH including the 300 gallons of water it uses to run. [700 GPH sump water -- that's a major problem, eh?]
The Bur-Cam Sump-Buddy claims 600GPH at 5' of head. I think at either rate you should be looking for sandbags, not a sump pump.
My local water is very hard & has lots of chlorine. I'm just guessing, but I think plastic will last longer in it than brass. [OTOH, if I'm lucky, this thing will just sit in my basement sump hole for 20 yrs and never have any city water pumped through it.]

They are using a deep well jet pump j-body, and controlling flow with a float switch that controls a normally open solenoid valve. A pump guy, well driller or pump supply house has all the parts.
