Answers

I used a 14 or 16 gauge 50 foot cord attached to a ground fault outlet but a 12 gauge would be better. I also bought a ground fault outlet that can be plugged into a regular outlet to create one if needed. seems like a good idea since it is submerged for pumping out water

Asked by Miche April 4, 2020
2
Answers

The WaterBUG Glow has an open impeller which is less prone to clogging and passes some debris through. The recommended operation is to place to the pump on a hard surface in the water. The filter features of this pump work best if the debris is filtered from the outside in. Sitting the pump directly on a loose/dirty surface will not allow the filter features to work to their full extent.

The head pressure is 25 feet, but the vertical lift is only 10 feet? Is this specification correct?

Asked by waterman June 30, 2020
1
Answer

This is the way I look at head pressure verses vertical lift, head pressure is the maximum amount of water pressure discharged at 25 feet of hose after that the longer the hose the less pressure and volume your pump will discharge water, Vertical lift is the height the pump will pump maximum amount of water at that height each foot you pump higher you will lose volume, if your pumping 10 foot you will pump Max. if you pump 12 foot you will pump less and so on .

Would this pump work for irrigation from a shallow well?

Asked by Curious April 28, 2020
1
Answer

We have this pump, it depends on how much you are going to irrigate, we have an orchard and vineyard we pump water from tanks to the needed areas it works well for us, we wanted the pump because it pumps water from one of our shop floors, the water never really floods sometimes it gets maybe a quarter of an inch deep in a place or two, this little pump will pump it out in a couple of minutes.

Asked by Geoff September 8, 2020
1
Answer

I would store it at a more moderate temperature if I had a choice, especially if it had been used to pump water. In the winter here in the mountains, I store our vehicle batteries and cordless tool batteries in the basement, where although it gets cold, it does not freeze like it does up in the barn. Stuff just seems to last longer that way.

Redneck problems require redneck solutions. I have a small above ground pool that doesn't get as warm as I would like. I have tried a few things and thought this might work, and it did. I hooked up 250 feet of black drip irrigation tubing to the utility pump and left the tubing in the sun. I put the pump on a GFCI switched timer so it only runs while the sun is shining in that area. After two days I had to reduce the time the pump ran because the water got over 90 degrees. I pull the pump out while we are in the pool but now it stays nice and warm and I don't have to tell my son to get out because his lips are blue.

This 0.16 HP WATERBUG GLOW AUTO OFF SUBMERSIBLE UTILITY PUMP WITH MULTI-FLO TECHNOLOGY Works great and pumps fast. I am using it for a small leak in the crawl space under the house. I have some water issues when it rains hard. I made a containment area using a bucket to allow the pump to work. The pump will draw water down to about 1/8 inch and I feel that is a manageable amount until I get the sump pump repaired.

OK, I'm really impressed by this pump. It says that it will pump down to about 1/16" of water, which is what I was looking for because my spa pump leaves nearly 2" of water, making cleanup a lot harder than it should be. I set up a test where I filled a small container with 3/4" of water (see photos), and then turned it on. Within a couple of seconds, the water was gone - you can barely see the water on the ruler. Definitely less than 1/16", and very fast. The pump protects itself against debris (there are 4 levels of strainers under the pump, each finer than the one outside it, so unless you don't follow the instructions, you should never have problems with clogging. It also shuts off when it pumps dry (in case you leave it running and it finishes while you're away) or if a clog occurs, and then it automatically recovers (it can take up to an hour, since it is heat-based). All in all, a very impressive pump, and very well-made.

This .16 Horsepower WAYNE WaterBug Glow with Auto off submersible utility pump with Multi Flo Technology will be the perfect tool to have around my swimming pool. I am preparing for the fall and winter setting up my closing of my swimming pool which I will place this pump on top of my pool cover to pump off the excess water that usually stands on my pool cover. The Multi-ring suction strainer will help keep the leaves and debris from becoming clogged since I do have lots of pine needles and leaves that seem to aim for my pool. This pump connects to a standard water garden hose and removes water down to a 1/16 of an inch of the surface, making the area virtually dry. It does require 3/16 of an inch of water before pump comes on. One of the biggest advantages for this pump is that it has two drain ports - one on top and one on the side. This will make it handy to whatever your needs are for draining water down. It comes with a 10-foot power cord for hard to reach places and the cord wraps around the handle. Weighs only 8 pounds and very lightweight which I love. I have tested this pump out and it works very well. I placed it in a 5-gallon bucket, and it cleaned out that bucket within a minute. Has a very nice quiet motor. Be sure to always plug it in a grounded GFCI outlet to prevent electric shock. It comes with a one-year warranty. I have included a picture of the pump and I am excited for the fall and winter not having to worry about how I am going to keep the water down off my pool cover. Comes already assembled which is great!

I used this pump to drain a kiddie pool today after the water got below the level where I could siphon it. The water was maybe a half an inch deep across a 10 foot pool. The pump sat flat on the bottom of the pool. The pump is submersible, if needed. It connected to a standard garden hose. It’s quiet, almost silent. It pumped out that last half inch of water quickly. I actually hooked the drain hose up to a sprinkler and used the water from the pool to water the lawn. This thing will be handy to have around if we get water in our basement or something like that.

Wayne 0.16 HP WaterBUG Glow Auto Off Submersible Utility Pump with Multi-Flo Technology Not exactly the pump I needed per some of the warnings in the Instructions, but is does deliver “clear water” pump out sucking action down to about 1/16th of an inch (see photo attached). I was a little taken-aback by the Instruction’s Notice: “…this pump is not designed to handle salt water, brine, laundry discharge…highly chlorinated water…etc...,” as I was planning on using it for our washing machine discharge that empties into a double deep sink that then drains ever so slowly. I did use it to successfully pump out the clear rinse water however (see other photo attached). It’s also not the sort of pump that you would leave plugged-in all time, but it does have a walk-away feature auto shutoff. One thing I really liked, over other pumps I have owned, are the Wayne’s two brass garden hose fittings (See third photo). Usually such pumps have just molded plastic male fittings, but solid brass is much more a sign of quality and durability. Wayne’s side discharge option is also a great feature that will find uses other than my deep sink issue.

Awesome! I highly recommend this utility pump. I just got mine two days ago and had to use it today in a lady's basement that was taking water quickly. Just as quickly, the Waterbug Glow, pumped the water into her sump. It's auto on and off feature works just as advertised. It shut off when most of the water was gone and came back on when the water level rose again. It works quietly and efficiently.

The Wayne .16 HP Water-Bug glow auto off submersible utility pump with multi flow technology is ready to go out of the box, just attach a garden hose. Plug it into a GFCI outlet and the plug has an on off indicator that lights up. For a room attach the hose to the side discharge and when in tight spaces such as a bucket or laundry tub use the top outlet. I have a room downstairs that with rain and a strong east wind floods because it is lower than the area around it. It is difficult and time consuming to remove the water . With this pump I can remove the water down to 1/16 of an inch and then it can easily be mopped to finish it. I can also pump out the bilge in my sailboat easily. This is a versatile pump that is ready and easy to use and works great.
