Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good! So far, so good! Won't be able to really tell you about the product for another 10 or 12 years. . . Was shipped quickly (even though it was colse to Christmas). Would have been nice, though to have gotten my Military Discount. . .OH! Well! Can't always get everything one wants. P.S. One picture. . . as it is already buried! December 17, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Already Failed Less than 3 weeks after installation in a weekend only use house and the pump motor windings are grounded. Pulling it out this weekend to return. March 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great pump I needed to replace a 9 year old pump that died. The pump is in a 42 gal lift station for a full bath in the lower part of my home. The main tank is approx 50 ft away. from this station After pricing several different pumps, I decided to give this pump a try. The pump this one is replacing cost over 400 dollars with the same warranty. HD did not have this pump is store. I ordered it online with an expected delevery date of 5-7 days. To my surprise ,UPS showed up in 3 days with the pump. Installitation was simple and straight forward. Anyone with even basic plumbing skills should be able to swap this pump. Make sure you activate the float switch several times, either with a water hose or tub / sink, just to make sure the float (tether) switch is set to the level you need and that it is free to rise and fall with the water level, without obstruction. Check this before you close everything up and cover everything back up. This pump is extremely quiet. My tether is set to about the top of the pump, and it takes about 15 secs to empty the 20 or so gallons of water. So far, it has been about 3 months and this pump has not let me down. Unless I am outside and within 20 feet of this lift station, I never hear the pump running. I am expecting many years of service. IF there are any problems within the first 5 years, I will update this post March 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SO FAR SO GOOD! Easy to install in place of the old one. Hopefully it lasts. Heavy duty. March 3, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk pump. Junk. Installed the pump. It worked for two days and then failed. I called Wayne's customer service/tech support. They advised me to return the pump as it was defective. I replaced the Wayne with an Everbilt. No problems with the Everbilt. August 24, 2014

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sewage Pump?????? Pump impeller lasted to weeks discharging clear sewage. Impeller is very thin and can not operate continually for two weeks pumping clear sewage. Instructions indicate it can operate continually. December 9, 2014
