Answer: 
The float switch is a small sealed reed-valve (magnetic) unit that attaches to an L-shaped metal bracket about 4 inches long. The manufacturer supplies cable zip ties to attach the float to the vertical drain pipe. The float should be positioned about 10-14 inches above the sump floor, and more importantly, in a position where the backup pump will turn on once the water level is 1 to 2 inches above where Read More
The float switch is a small sealed reed-valve (magnetic) unit that attaches to an L-shaped metal bracket about 4 inches long. The manufacturer supplies cable zip ties to attach the float to the vertical drain pipe. The float should be positioned about 10-14 inches above the sump floor, and more importantly, in a position where the backup pump will turn on once the water level is 1 to 2 inches above where your primary pump would normally turn on.
When the backup pump is actuated by it's float switch, it runs for a timed 20-25 seconds to empty the sump. This is because the float switch travel is only about 1 -2 inches. I have found this setup works very well, it was well thought out by the engineers designing the system. I attached the float switch to the drain pipe using a normal hose clamp, it is sturdier than the zip ties in my opinion. Read Less

Answer: 
There are zip ties included in the system, and you just zip tie the float with the L bracket onto the discharge pipe. (the drain pipe)

If the power is still on and your main pump fails, will it still just run off of the battery?

Answer: 
Yes, this pump will run if the A/C power (to charge the battery for this pump) is off or on. This pump always runs off of the 12-volt battery. In other words, if your main pump fails (for any reason) but power is still on, this pump will run. If the power is out, this pump will run as well. It is designed to run with A/C power off or on.
Also, this pump can run if your main pump can not keep up with the Read More
Yes, this pump will run if the A/C power (to charge the battery for this pump) is off or on. This pump always runs off of the 12-volt battery. In other words, if your main pump fails (for any reason) but power is still on, this pump will run. If the power is out, this pump will run as well. It is designed to run with A/C power off or on.
Also, this pump can run if your main pump can not keep up with the inflow of water. What you do is set the float for the backup pump to turn on when the water is 1-2 inches above where your main pump would normally turn on. So, it is an assist pump for hi flow situations and also a backup if your main pump fails for any reason, including (but not limited to) power loss.
The only reason this pump would not run is when the 12-volt storage battery is depleted and/or reached its end-of-life. Read Less

I touch the test button I get nothing. I have two battery connectors which I place the p0sitive and negative wires and tightened the clamps. Is it possible that the wires are not making contact within the connectors? There are "O" ring wires slotted into the connectors. The marine battery has to smaller connector pinsm but the "O" rings are to sallto fit on those positive had my system for more than ten years and it still lites and appears to be functional, Len the Plummer replaced my original sump after 35 years and disconnected the battery in the box at the same time, Surely he knew what he was doing. Help if you can. I'm 76 and have a terrible time kneeling for chores like this so I may have to call someone to fix. But with this snowstorm I'm a little nervous about power outages and may have to tolerate the pain associated with doing it myself.

Answer: 
Just had the same situation. The plumber checked the switch on the back up motor and said it was in the "up" position indicating the motor or switch has failed. Could also be the charging unit if it is part of the system. Looks like you need to change out the pump as do we.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beware! --Will boil your battery dry! I installed this pump in July 2015. It seemed OK until I tested it's operation in May 2016. Indicator shows that battery is OK, but in fact it had boiled my battery dry and ruined it. If you install this, watch your water level in the battery, and test it monthly. Have never had this problem with deep cycle batteries before. Have always used a battery tender to keep them charged. May 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mr. wayne back up sump will need a back up I bought this pump to replace the back up that had been in place for 3 years and had worked well the few times it was needed. Went all through the set up in a cramped and not all that pleasant hole only to find on testing that the pump leaks around the gasket when activated. Since it is working better than nothing and the inconvenience of redoing the whole job and trying to go through the hassle of returning the pump to a store seems like a huge hassle I guess I will live temporarily with this poorly made and obviously not tested product. April 27, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great the 50% of the time it works. Have an intermittent problem with this unit. Think the problem is in the float switch. When it works its great. when it doesn't not so hot. Truthfully, I think I just got a lemon. Will see what the future holds. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don't hesitate! We have a 10 ft. lift and this pump pumps out the pit faster then our main pump! It only takes around 7 seconds to empty the pit and was very easy to install. And you don't even have to drill a weep hole in the pipe bacause Wayne was considerate enough to pre-drill one into the pump. We put a Wayne 75 amp-hour battery to go with it and lasts for hours and hours in a power outage. The pump is also very quiet, much more quiet then the Basement Watchdog BWE which wasn't even as powerful as this one. This system is awesome for the price. January 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great system Recent heavy rains reinforced the need for a good back up system for my basement sump pump. After research decided on the Wayen system. So far so good. Install was fairly easy... A coule of hours once all components are gathered ...could be a challenge for a rookie...instructions were good. In test mode the system works as advertised and expected. Be certain of your sump depth and battery and power location so as to have adequate lengths on wiring.. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Backup Pump! This pump is fantastic! I needed to replace my 23 year old (still working) pedestal 1/3 HP sump pump to accommodate sealing my sump area for a radon mitigation project. Using a submersible pump was my best option. Since I was sealing my sump pit (with a clear poly-carbonate cover I made) I wanted a backup system in case of any issues with power or the main pump. I purchased a Wayne CDU980E as my main pump and paired it with this ESP25 backup system. This unit kept coming up at the top of the reviews as one of the best. This 12-volt pump is quiet, powerful, and fast when emptying the sump pit. I'm impressed with the quality and quietness of these pumps, and recommend them for your consideration too. Note - When I installed the system I found there was one small issue with an electrical connection between the power transformer to the main charging panel. The connector plug was bent (looked like a factory glitch) and I was unable to plug the transformer all the way into the plug. I could have just fashioned up a new connector, but I called Wayne Technical support and they were fantastic to deal with, sending a new part out without hesitation. I mentioned I could have just fashioned a new connection by cutting the wire, etc. and the gentleman on the line said 'Nope - you shouldn't have to do that, this system should be plug and play - we will send you a new part via FedEx." Now THAT is customer service! Thumbs up all around for Wayne Pumps!!! January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great backup pump! So far so good with this pump. Good build quality. Pump is very quiet and seems to be very corrosion resistant. Easy install. I use a group 27 deep cycle battery. The only thing off with this kit is the fact that the lid for the battery case won't sit down on the case because the circuit board hits the top of the battery. The manual claims you can use up to a group 27 battery. Not a big deal to me. 5 stars. January 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality unit so far. Fair price. Liked free shipping to residence. Quick easy installation. Our entire sump system including sealed battery is Wayne. October 20, 2015
