Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete I'm Pumping. Great Product.
I have a low spot in my yard that ponds during heavy rain. I researched putting in a sump pump by watching on-line videos. I installed a 6" catch basin in the area and plumbed it to a Home Depot bucket, buried a few feet away, with 4" PVC pipe. The bucket was buried a few inches below the surface. I increased the height of the bucket by cutting off the bottom 4" of another bucket, and placing the top into my buried bucket. The buckets were attached to each other with screws.
I bought the Wayne 1/3 HP Sump Pump and a check valve on line from Home Depot. I wanted a pump with a vertical float switch. I had earlier purchased another pump (not from Home Depot) with a tether float and couldn't get the float to work properly. It had to fit in my bucket sump. Wayne products had good reviews and appeared easy to install. Both items arrived quickly and were well packaged. The instructions were easy to read and understand. I purchased a few fittings and connected the check valve to the pump. I placed the pump into my bucket sump and then plumbed 1 1/4" pipe from it to a v-ditch on the side of my yard. I capped the sump bucket with a bucket lid.
This set up worked great during a test. It is very quiet. The real test came with the heavy rains we received the past week. It has continued to work flawlessly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by busybuildr Wayne 1/3 hp sump pump
Install was easy and the pump is VERY quiet running. I had to re-plumb my discharge to bring it up to 1-1/2" pipe, but that's easy with PVC pipe.
It's only been installed for about a month, but I'm very happy with it.
My old pump (a Little Giant 1/6 hp) lasted 20 years - hopefully this one will, too !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ziggy Solid well built pump
My Flotec sump pump finally went south. Had it for over 20 years with no problems. So, needed to replace it. After searching the reviews on some pumps, no question to get a Wayne. It matched up perfectly without having to modify any plumbing. I got a vertical switch this time, since the sump pit is square and not enough room for a tethered switch. I had to shorten the tether on my previous pump. I also like the vertical switch keeps the water level quite a distance below the floor. Good quality pump.

The pump arrived ahead of schedule and was very easy to install. Like the others have said, it is very quiet in operation.

Pump swap out was flawless. Wayne for Wayne. Both 1/3 HP. Old one lasted 8 years. Hope for the same with new one....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Axelhose Looks to be well built and is American made.
Less than one month after receiving and installing this pump is too early to rate this but HD insists. It arrived on time, looks well built and was easy to install. Whether it will last and perform well only time will tell. It is American made.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SkyhawkNC Great Quality
About a year and a half ago I purchased a different pump for my crawl space which recently died...I reviewed a ton of different pumps that were stocked in the store, but all were rated poorly. So I ordered this one which has great ratings. It was a snap to install, and is much quieter than the previous pump...in fact I don't even hear it when it runs which is a plus!
My only complaint is that the better rated pumps have to be ordered, but it seems to be well worth the wait.
