    I never knew Ridgid made a 3HP version of the TS-2424.

    Time, cost, or quality; pick any two but you can't have all three.

      Or the big box store's rating. All the Water Ace Sump and Sewage pumps are made by Myers (Pentair) and their horsepower ratings are always one notch above the Myers variety for the same exact pump... Well, maybe not exact, I'm sure they left something out to make it cheaper.
