Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by really nice pump, strange mount Had to order the pump online since the stores don't stock them. No problem with installation and it is a little more quite running than the other pumps I've had at this location. The only thing I don't like about the pump is the way it is attached to the mounting plate. It has a single piece of iron, flat strap material, vertical between the pump body and the mount plate, about midway of the pump length. When the pump starts or stops, the impeller end pops up or down 1" to 1 1/2", so does the connected PVC piping. I stopped mine with a wood block under the pump body. Just seems a strange way to mount a pump. It has done the job for four months now and seems to be going strong. September 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great inexpensive pump! Perfect pump for the shallow well owner. I had a 3/4 hp Berkeley shallow well pump that was 3 times as expensive and conked out after one year of moderate spring/summer use. Rather than pay the $450 it was going to take to repair the old pump, I found this one for only $150 and decided it was worth taking a chance. And I'm glad I did. It was easily interchangable with the Berkeley after attaching a simple electrical plug and has been working beautifully for the past month. I was also pleasantly surprised that this pump had a pressure switch built on (I don't think that feature was noted in the product description) as I was expecting to have to take the one off my old pump and add it to this one. I feel I made a great decision with this pump. May 12, 2006
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding....quality and value with quiet operation.Pumps more water pressure than city lines. Wayne is known for quality and reliability, Install (to replace worn-out pump)was quick and easy and had well up and operating within an hour. July 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I liked the ease of installation and the cast iron pump This is the same model as the old pump, so I figured it must be good if they still made the same model after a long period of time. Being the same model it was very easy to remove the old and install the new. February 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty good for its price I needed a relatively cheap pump but not a complete trash. This is a surprisingly sturdy device for its price. It is easy to hook to the pipes and do the priming. The work is very quiet. Note that it has to be in a dry location or it will rust. October 30, 2012
