Answer: 
Most sump pumps are not rated to run continuously and some shut down automatically after a certain run time (well short of a minute). Amazingly, submersible pumps get very hot and need to cool down periodically, which typically happens once the sump has been pumped down and the pump switch cuts off. There are better ideas for continuous pumping.

Just set it in there at the right height and get it level. Might not have to be all the way down to floor of sump basin. I think ON at 1" below BOTTOM of concrete floor slab is typically where you won't have to pump any more than necessary, but your conditions may be different.
There is some torque movement at startup, but if you're installing using solid piping (best way--ditch the flex pipe), the piping should be secured (to the wall or somewhere) and this will hold the pump in position. I added check valves and another fitting with rubber coupling, added some sheet rubber under the pipe clamp to wall bracket, so as to allow a little 'give' in the system. Read Less

Answer: 
If you have the skill to change it, yes.I don't think they can be ordered with a longer cord. You may want to ask an electrician about wire size. If it was me I would increase the wire size up. example if the wire size is #16, I would put a #14 wire on it. You don't want to overheat that cord. Again an electrician would be able to tell you the best alternative.

Hi Jack.
Thank you for your question.
This model sump pump only comes in an 8-foot cord length. The longest cord length I could find that The Home Depot has is a 10-foot cord.
A water proof connection may work for you. There is a Water Tight Plug kit by Hubbell, sku #1000-044-130, that may be for your situation. Read More

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 94 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great dependable pump easy to install as replacement on a water rinse drain unit on a processor machine in our commercial plant.. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No opinion yet Its just sitting down there in the hole waiting for the water to get high enough for it to start removing it(I guess.)So far so good.I was told I needed a new one so I got this one because of the ratings.Be sure to get a Home Depot cement mixing pan to put your old pump in or you will have a mess in your basement & when you are finished with it, those pans make great cat litter boxes. August 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it's supposed to Easy to install. Gets rid of water very quickly and is relatively quiet. You will need 1 and 1/2 " pvc, adapter to screw into the pump, and teflon tape and pvc glue. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Expect good service Expect good service from this Wayne pump. Installed as replacement pump in 2-pump setup for neighbor. Have seen good service from this brand, good choice for mid-priced sump pump. Happy that Wayne has gotten away from the electronic switches. These simple float switches work well and are dependable. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality sump pump I purchased this and had it installed by a contractor. My rating is actually based on his feedback. He was pleased to find that I had purchased a very high quality sump pump to replace the one I had that went bad. He said it was a major step up in quality from the existing and fairly easy to install. August 16, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sump Pump Came on the time frame that they said when I ordered the sump pump. Easy to install. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful, quiet pump. Easy to install and an excellent value. Our old 1/2 HP WaterAce was years beyond the warranty, so with El Niño coming on, I knew that it was time to upgrade. I chose the 3/4 HP Wayne as it not only provided more power (less time to move the water) but was much quieter (we barely know when it's running). Installation is very straightforward: if you don't have to replace the check valve and you have a coupler in the line, you can just unscrew the coupler and pull out the old sump pump as a whole unit, check valve, PVC pipe and all. Once out, swapping the pumps is trivial. Just be sure to use the Teflon tape (I also use pipe compound for good measure). If your check valve uses clamps, then it's the same idea, just unclamp the BOTTOM clamps and remove the assembly below. That way, the check valve will keep all the water from running back into the sump. (I learned that one the hard way.) If you want to replace the check valve, it's basically the same idea. Cut away/unscrew the old check valve and remove the whole assembly. (You may need PVC, primer, and glue if you need to cut the old one out.) A good piece of advice I received: place a ball valve ABOVE the check valve, so that if/when you ever have to remove the valve (or pump), you can turn the ball valve off and not worry about any water coming back into the sump while you're working. (It's the blue handle in the picture.) Once installed, the Wayne pump performs awesome. The extra power really makes it empty the sump much faster. One thing that really made a difference for us was replacing the old check valve with a "quiet" version, once which helps eliminate the effects of water hammer (eg, http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Klunkless-Check-Valve-KCV/202809421). The picture shows my first go, with a "regular" check valve. It was ok, but adding the "quiet" valve has made a noticeable difference. Another difference between my old sump and the Wayne (besides power) is that it's body is stainless steel rather than cast iron, so it actually weighs a little bit less, not a big deal once in place, but when you're wrestling with a heavy pump in a cramped area, it helps. The Wayne is also more compact (as you can see in the second picture), which helps even more. It's got a much better handle, too, making it easier to lift and place the pump in the sump. Finally, the Wayne uses a top-flow design which leaves a small amount of water in the sump at the end of the cycle; the old one draws the water from the bottom, so this didn't happen as much -- but this is a minor quibble, really, as our sump is actually just a French drain, so it eventually drains out the bottom once the rain stops. I kept the old pump just in case, but I'm thinking that the Wayne will see us through this El Niño and many more rainstorms to come. January 12, 2016
