Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnG Finally protection during power outage
Needed to replace my noisy sump pump and really needed to have backup. decided to go with battery backup since I've heard it is safer than using the water backup option I considered. This was good since I could just connect to the line and both were handled. No special additional cutting was required. Other reviews say it is quiet. It really is. I was standing there watching it and with other noise in my basement going on I didn't hear it, but saw the water level drop. We have frequent power outages and if it is raining my basement can flood in 2 or 3 hours without pumping the sump. This solves that issue. 2 days after I installed, it rained, we lost power, and the backup worked with no issues. Almost as if we planned it.

The pump system was super easy to install. The issue is I wish the back up pump had a longer power cord.

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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maynard so far so good
The first pump was 'out of box failure'. The exchange to Home Depot was flawless. The second one arrived quickly and the installation was easy. Everything works fine. This was the best pump for our needs. I purchased an Interstate battery to use with pump. Very happy with purchase and the way that Home Depot makes exchanges.

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.
