Notes 
The sizing of effluent systems normally requires variable level float(s) controls and properly sized basins to achieve required pumping cycles or dosing timers with non automatic pumps.

Reserve Powered Design.
For unusual conditions a reserve safety factor is engineered into the design of every Zoeller pump.

    Additional cord lengths are available in 15' (5 m), 25' (8 m) and 35' (11 m).  50' (15 m) cord lengths available for 230 V units only.
    BE and BN models include a piggyback variable level pump switch. Model 53®: cast iron switch case, motor and pump housing, and a glass-filled plastic impeller. Model 57: cast iron construction with a cast iron impeller. Model 55: bronze switch case, motor and pump housing, and a glass-filled plastic impeller. Model 59: bronze construction with a bronze impeller.
    Optional pump stand (P/N 10-2421). The stand, made of durable, non-corrosive ABS, attaches securely to the pump and is intended to reduce clogging by debris, eliminate the need for bricks or blocks under the pump, and provide the ability to raise the intake by adding sections of 1-1/2" or 2" (DN40 or DN50) PVC.
