I've been running one of these that I bought new for a couple months. I've run it with the Toms Aqua Lifter pump. My only issue has been the pump. I don't think it's big enough to push water back into the sump fast enough before the unit times out. I have just replaced the aqua lifter with a standard AquaClear powerhead pump and I am immediately impressed. The powerhead pump is able to top off 5 gallons in under a minute. Well, that's my review. Hope that helps someone.

I think there is a way you can change the timer on it

Yes, the timer can be extended to 7 min. I've done this and I'm very well versed with the internal workings of this jbj lol. For those with large tanks a larger pump is a need.

Gonna have to bust out the directions cause mine barely resets the float now that I have a bigger tank...

Pull the back of the controller off and there is a screw set. It's labeled in minutes. There's also an audible alarm you can turn on.
