Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service Not much to say about the pump,it's a Wayne standard of the industry. I'm again pleased with Home Depot took 3 days to get the pump to my door. I have a Lowes 4 minutes from my house and they never fail to disappoint me (again today) so anything major I drive 10 miles to HD. May 26, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good strong pump I needed to buy a new pump for my well but didn't want to get a store brand. I spent about 40 dollars more and got a wayne pump. Seems to be running strong since I installed it. Shipping was free but took a couple extra days. June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1/2 HP CAST IRON SHALLOW WELL JET PUMP The pump was really easy to install very durable easy to follow instructions , makes minimal noise , has several options on the way you can set it up. We are very satisfied with the pump. June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great inexpensive pump! Perfect pump for the shallow well owner. I had a 3/4 hp Berkeley shallow well pump that was 3 times as expensive and conked out after one year of moderate spring/summer use. Rather than pay the $450 it was going to take to repair the old pump, I found this one for only $150 and decided it was worth taking a chance. And I'm glad I did. It was easily interchangable with the Berkeley after attaching a simple electrical plug and has been working beautifully for the past month. I was also pleasantly surprised that this pump had a pressure switch built on (I don't think that feature was noted in the product description) as I was expecting to have to take the one off my old pump and add it to this one. I feel I made a great decision with this pump. May 12, 2006
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product The shallow jet pump was purchased to replace a 40 year old pump. The appearance is attractive and was easy to assemble. The instructions are written in a simple and understandable manner. The performance has been exceptional and am hoping for a 40 year performance. September 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent service on failed pump Pump received failed within one day of installation. Customer service was excellent. Returned pump to local store and reordered with 10% discount. New pump works fine for a week now. Don't like to get defective items, but the inconvenience is compensated for with good customer service. New pump works like a champ and puts out lots of water for shallow well. August 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty good for its price I needed a relatively cheap pump but not a complete trash. This is a surprisingly sturdy device for its price. It is easy to hook to the pipes and do the priming. The work is very quiet. Note that it has to be in a dry location or it will rust. October 30, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Second try went perfectly. First pump I received went bad after two cycles, but HD went out of their way to make it good. They sent another pump out immediately, and arranged to have the return pump picked up. New pump is purring like a kitten. I am very happy with HD customer service. They made a tough situation a lot easier for me. August 16, 2015
