Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace Vortex Utility Pump (Vip50-Apl):

We bought this pump in November of 2012 , it worked great at first ,but doesn't want to work anymore & it is only 7 months old . It has a 2 year warrenty but we have been told by our local Ace Hardware store that they don't know if they will exchange it or not since we no longer have the receipt. When we plug it in ,the motor will come on for a few seconds than shut right back off , it won't discharge standing water anymore it just pumps it back in our basement . We even cleaned it out as it states to do on the box , we put it in our kiddie pool to se if it would work but it still won't even after being cleaned . I am highly Disappointed in the Ace Promise where it says satisfaction Guaranteed .

      I used it for the flooding in my basement due to the rain storms recently in NE. Very happy with the pump and its tenacity (1/2 HP). It really does the trick.

      Highly recommended.

          easy to install. the guys at ace were very helpful. i debated for weeks about this project and yest. am just decided to do it. pulled out old pumps, called the guys at ace and went to get the new pumps. put in with no problem. researched on line for days and looked at more expensive pumps. this one is great price and good performance. besides these pumps need to be maintained and replaced no matter what you buy.
