The existing battery back-up sump pump failed after several years. The pump housing split and did not pump water out adequately and, in addition, sprayed water everywhere. I researched replacement pumps with battery back-up systems and was impressed with this system's construction and ease of installation. You need to purchase the check valve which does not come with the system but makes the system run smoother and helps it last longer. Installation was under an hour. The system is so quiet that I have to check if it is indeed running at times. No more water spraying everywhere and peace of mind once again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by al Wayne 1/2 hp battery backup sump pump system.
I replaced a 13 year old working sump pump with the Wayne 1/2 hp battery backup Sump system . The pump is very quiet. The only critism I have is in regards to the installation directions that are included. They are for installing either the standard pump OR the 12 volt back up pump. There is not a set of directions for installing the system as shipped. It's relatively easy to install, but having a set of directions for the combination pumps system as shipped would make it easier and faster to install. This is why I gave if 4 stars instead of 5.

It seems well made and was easy to install. As others have mentioned it is very quiet. I will repost after some time has passed.

Our sump pump runs a lot, and we had an inexpensive pump installed by our builder. It worked fine, but was a bit noisy with a big clunk each time it stopped pumping. Tried a clunkless check valve, but didn't help much. Also worried about a power outage. Have a generator, but didn't want to have to run it all night just for sump pump. This kit was very easy to install, is a nice heavy duty pump, and took care of both my issues. It is extremely quiet when running. The clunk is just about gone too - think it helps to have the check valves right down by the pump, so they're down in my sump pit. Picked up a deep cycle battery, and the backup pump does a great job pumping as well. Glad to have this system in place, I'm confident it will last for quite a few years.

very easy to install, like that each pump can be replaced in the future without buying the full system

Installed this sump pump system last night during the wettest December we've had on record. Bought a 1.5" rubber coupler, a 2' piece of 1.5" pvc pipe, and a 12 volt battery so we could complete the installation right away. Measured things up ahead of time, drained the pump pit down with the old pump, pulled it out and quickly installed the new system. Only took minutes to pull the old and place this one in the pit. Was pumping water out within minutes, which was good because the sump was filling fast.
Overall the installation took about 1 hour, start to finish, running and securing all the cables, and testing the battery back up pump. The instructions are very poor, but the system is so simple it really doesn't take much.
This system is extremely quiet, both pumps! I couldn't believe it, can hardly here either of them run. Pumps seem very powerful as well.
Time will tell how it holds up, but overall it really impressed me so far, definitely the easiest backup systems to install, and lots of power.

I had zero experience with sump pumps before buying my new home last Spring. This product was recommended by a friend. Extremely easy setup. I was about to hire a plumber to install until I saw how easy it was when I received it. It is self explanatory (instructions were not well written) and took me under an hour to install. I poured water into the sump pit and it activated without any issues (due to lack of rain so far I haven't seen it work under normal conditions). My builder previously installed a Ion pump which would kick on after about 4-6 inches of water was in the pit. The Wayne pump takes about 2-4 inches more water before kicking on. The battery backup float switch sits up higher and requires more water in the pit before activating. When it does activate an alarm sounds letting you know that your primary pump is not working (because of power outage or pump failure.
