Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dlp Filter screen is rusting
I bought this pump to move gray water from a 50 gal storage tub to the garden to water flowers. On level ground it can move water thru 40 foot of garden hose with acceptable pressure. So, it actually works pretty well.
Here are my complaints though.
The filter screen on the bottom is made from bare steel. It's a thin steel sheet that is perforated. I've only used the pump about 6 weeks and it is already rusting as you would expect. I've used it once a week for about 30 minutes and not submerged continuously. The screws look like zinc plated steel.
The ring for lifting is off the center of gravity so it is awkward to lift and hurts your finger(s). The easiest and most comfortable way to lift is grabbing the power cord :/
The output hose has no high volume connector option. Is has a garden hose/NTP connector installed on the pump so either connector is the same flow.
I found myself needing a second pump for a similar application and bought the Superior Pump Model # 91025. This pump cost about 20% less with the same flow but without the above complaints. Better pump in my opinion but I haven't owned either long enough to judge reliability

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Boujii Does the job quite well
I bought this pump to use with very large aquariums. I've been using it for about 4 months now and works flawlessly for what it is intended to do.
Last week I used it to drain out a pool to clean and noticed it will clog up pretty quick. A quick wipe off the bottom screen and back in business. But doesn't last long. The pump is not intended to be used as a non-clogging pump. Had I to do it over again, I would spend another $20 and get one of the non-clogging ones for situations where I could be sucking up dirt, grit, etc.

This light weight very effecient pump is great for the average Joe/Jill. Attaches easily to an everyday garden hose. Great for any area that has standing water or a tendency to flood like a basement floor and even a flooded kitchen, stopped up sink or tub. Just attach the garden hose to the pump, put the hose down drain pipe or sink, plug it in and walk away it is that easy to work no bell or whistles needed. I challenge you to find a better pump for your small flooding problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Billy53 1/6 HP Submersible Utility Pump
Short and sweet. This pump is every thing you need for a 1/6hp home/shop pump. The motor is very quiet and works down to less then 1/8 inch of water. Heavy duty plastic outer shell with an "O" ring attached to connect a cord so you don't have to lift it by the wire. I had to use this pump in a small pond and it worked effortlessly. At the bottom of the pond some sand and grit did get into the pump and slowed the amount of water pumped, but a quick spray with the hose cleared it and was ready to go again. I have used this many times so far and found it worth the price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LeveenHandyman Wayne Has Lost A Customer Forever
I own other wayne pumps and have been very pleased with there performance. After what happened with this one I will never buy a wayne pump again. I used this pump to cycle the water in my fountain/pond in my back yard. The pump died after about 5 months. I called wayne to get a replacement and was told they would not honor the warranty because I hooked up the pump to a timed switch. They concluded that the switch allowed the pump to run out of water which ruined the pump. I explained that could not happen because the pond is self filling. The pump just circulates the water and the fish in the pond would be dead if it ran dry. They are doing just fine. That did not matter to wayne. Wayne does not back its products anymore so I will not buy from them anymore.

This pump worked well. The pickup is on the bottom of the unit with helps empty what you are pumping and it has a metal screen that is good at keeping junk out of the pump. It was faster than the other one I had (not a Wayne). I will have to see how it holds up over time but seem well built. It was built in the USA!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jdkkkksl4599 Not a bad pump for crystal clean water!
A good pump for the money, but I bought it to take the water off a pool cover. I had it sitting in a 5 gal bucket with 1/4 inch holes. The screen on the bottom of the motor is micro! You need to clean it every 15-20 min's. I removed the screen and it seemed to work O.K.
Good motor for the money but remove the screen and take your chances.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vinegar4 Pumped vinegar through tankless water heater
I bought this to pump vinegar through a tankless water heater. Ran for over an hour without any problems. I don't know how well it will hold up after multiple uses, but seems like it's well built. Hope the vinegar doesn't damage any of the seals, etc. Way cheaper than hiring a plumber to treat my heater.
