Does the pump need to be secured to the basin? Can it simply sit on the floor of the basin? Any torque issues at startup?

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: 
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.

Answer: 
read the instructions carefully. Some pumps have the weep hole already molded into the base. If not you will need to drill a 1/8" hole between the discharge and the check valve

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 84 reviewers.
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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Failed after 4 weeks The switch failed after 4 weeks. It now requires a jiggle, as the float is not pushing up strong enough to start the pump. Even when the pump is under 24 inches of water (8 inches in garage). I had just replaced a Rigid pump which had only lasted 3 years. During the four weeks before this pump failed, I had to clean it off about 10 times, as the oak pollen "flowers" (little strings) clogged the very small intake hoes. Only use this pump if the water is absolutely clean - not for the garage sump I was using it for. May 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Pump I installed this pump in my house a week ago & so far it's been perfect. I have 1 issue though - Who sells a sump pump with an 8' cord when most basements have 7' ceilings and most sumps are 22" deep? The install was very easy but when I went to plug it in to the receptacle that is flush mounted w/ the bottom of the floor joist directly above the pump... guess what, about 6" too short; and the instructions say DO NOT use an extension cord. REALLY??!! May 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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by User friendly installation Good instructions, easy to follow, minimal tools needed May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wayne sump pump The pump went in without a hitch. Seems dependable and is quiet. My previous problems have been with switches. This one has a different type of switch. We'll see after a couple years. I have several pump motors that are good....just bad switches May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Install So far so good. Needed a generic YouTube video to give me the confidence to do it myself. This product and install are pretty turnkey. May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sump Pump My only complaint is that this wasn't available in the store. Besides that I'm happy. To be honest I didn't want to go to the store but I didn't know it was online only. May 24, 2016
