    I was looking to replace my current Hydromatic SKV50 pump and noticed that the performance data is way different than many other pumps:

    GPH @ 10': 9480
    GPH @ 15': 6000

    Other 1/2 HP Pumps

    Liberty LE51A
    GPH @ 10': 6720
    GPH @ 15': 5400

    PHCC E7055NS
    GPH @ 10': 4680
    GPH @ 15': 3960

    Zoeller M267
    GPH @ 10': 5340
    GPH @ 15': 3000

    Motor RPMs seem to all be the same. Could it be the size of the impeller that contributes to the large differences? How is it that the Hydromatic is 2000 more GPH?

    I'm looking for a replacement pump for a Bathroom w/ toilet/shower/sink, Washer, and Wet Bar Sink. Should I stick with the Hydromatic, or would I be ok with the Liberty?

    I've used hydromatic sump pumps and I've never had to ever replace one. In my opinion hydromatic is a solid choice. You get what you pay for and from what I know hydromatic pumps are pretty pricey.
