    Pump worked good up until it failed after 18 months of use. Certainly unfortunate that it failed but this can happen. I Submitted it back to Wayne as a warranty claim which it should be covered under the pumps 5 year warranty. Shipped the non-working pump back to Wayne, and now they are claiming that the pump is somehow not covered under their warranty. All information was provided to them as requested. Just an overall disappointing experience! Pump worked well while it was working, just don’t count on any support through Wayne’s warranty when it fails!Read more

    I purchased this product on 10/2/2017 and it failed 4/25/19. I checked the pump last night during a rain storm because I heard my backup pump kick in. The Wayne pump had failed and it scorched the outlet before completely quitting. When I pulled it out of the sump well to replace it with my spare the entire pump literally fell apart. The 3 bolts that hold the housing together had completely rusted through in a year and a half. I called Wayne’s warranty line and received the run around, they stated that because my washing machine drains into my sump pump that this voided the warranty. I checked my owners manual and did not see any mention of this. I checked Wayne’s website, where there is a revised owners manual, dated 2018, which now has this disclaimer. I called customer service again to discuss this and they stated that there should have been a supplement to the owners manual included in the original box that included this disclaimer. I located my original box and found the installation manual. On page 3 of that manual I found a small disclaimer stating this. This is not stated anywhere on the outside of the box, nor in the owners manual. I reinstalled my old Simmer sump pump, that had been in use for 5 years in the same place without any issues. I replace my sump pumps every 5 years simply for peace of mind, which I will continue to do, but this will be the last Wayne product I will ever purchase.Read more

    The pump itself is fine, the floater mechanism that activates the pump is incredibly flimsy and does not work 3/4 of the time. Testing it with a bucket of water, it will either not come on, or it will come on and not shut off when the water has been pumped away. The floater is attached by a hook that slides in and out and easily becomes misaligned or slides off the floater completely causing the pump to not come on or shut off based on the water level.Read more

    The media could not be loaded. Purchased WAYNE CDU980E 3/4 HP Submersible Cast Iron and Stainless Steel Sump Pump With Integrated Vertical Float Switch with Square Trade 4-Year Home Improvement Protection Plan. After installation found the pump was not working in it’s full capacity as described it was creating vertex in the well because water throwing back. When called customer care explaining the issue they wants us to send pump back to manufacturer by customerexpense for inspection. until then customer has to purchase new or take risk to get basement flooding. As per Square Trade Protection Plan its not covered in insurance because it’s still under warranty. Think twice before purchaseRead more

    There is no question that this is a great pump! Quiet, pump water quick, and it’s easy to install. No need for me to go over this, just read the other reviews!!! HOWEVER, DO NOT over do the size by replacing an existing pump that have lower HP with this – unless your existing pump does not have enough power. Especially if you have other drain connecting to the same pipping as the pump. I replaced an old 1/4 HP pump (see attached photo, at lease 20+ years old!) with this 3/4 HP Wayne, and thinking what can go wrong! I come home during our first major rain under the pump. Went outside to check. I notice that the pump blow water thru the pipping systems so hard that some of the water get push back up to the other pipping connections. Some of the PVC cover went flying all over. Luckily there’s no damage. I happen to need to replace another pump (also 1/3 HP) in the back of the house. That one is a pump only connection. I’ll be moving this baby over and get another 1/3 HP Wayne for this location. I still give this pump a 5 stars!!!Read more

    The media could not be loaded. Barely a year old and the switch has the ability to fail and not activate the pump. See video. It was great while it worked though. 3/4HP drains the sump pit quickly and faster than the water came in during wet season but I can’t get over that damn switch. My other 2 pumps still operable yet didn’t pump out the water fast enough. Buyer be aware and be mindful.Read more

    Pump is extremely powerful – a little too powerful. The old pump was connected via flexible hose and this pump proceeded to rip through all the hoses peice by piece as I replaced each segment. Finally replaced all segments with PVC – major work as alot of the plumbing was hidden. Finally after a few days I noticed that the pump wouldn’t turn off a couple of times. Seems like the switch sticks in the on position. I’d give it a 4 or 5 star otherwise but the switch is the crucial component and determines whether my basement stays dry or completly floods so I had to replace the pump and stick this in the backup reservoir.Read more

    The float switch stuck in the off position causing a flood. When new used for a week the first spring. Stuck the fall of the following year first day of storm heavy rain storm. Can’t unstick without pushing down on float first. There are no obstructions, it is the switch itself. I am going to another brand and a double pump. Took it to a pump expert. Wayne uses a mechanical spring and contacts/brushes system for the on/off. the contacts wear out quickly, not reliable and those that have replaced them say they are too short lived to be useful.Read more

    We just moved in to our newly renovated house and it had a new sump pump but a cheap one (1/4 hp and $90-$100 price range). This cheap pump would run for 1-2 minutes at a time and so loud that it would wake us up at night. So I googled best sump pump and this Wayne one came up as highest rated. I watched a few youtube videos on how to install, and it was super easy, since all my pipes were new and the pit was already set I didn’t need to replace any piping or dig the pit, I just unscrewed the old pump and screwed this one in. Then I filled up the pit with water and did a test run and it emptied in 2 seconds with only a gentle noise. I was actually blown away. I couldn’t understand why anyone would endure the noise of the cheaper pump to save $100 or $150. In terms of noise, I wanted to give a detailed review because this was our primary concern: -the noise is comparable to a quiet/newer dishwasher when you are beside the pump. Since ours is in an enclosed utility closet the pump operation noise is not noticeable from outside the closet unless you are told what to listen for and sit quietly to wait for it. It is also so quick that the sound doesn’t last long. -The pump is so powerful and quick that it creates some force when it turns on and sends the water out. You may hear the water flow through pipes if you can hear water flow through other pipes in your house (like if you can hear somebody empty the bathtub when you are downstairs). This may or may not be noticeable depending on how insulated your walls are and whether or not you have secured the outflow pipes (or if they’re just flopping around willy-nilly). The pump also feels very solid and looks well built. The only negative was shipping took 2 days longer than expected and that happened to be during a rain event so we were suffering with the old pump. I would totally recommend.Read more

    We’ve been using (and fixing) a Zoeller 50 series pump since we moved into this house, which is at the bottom of a hill and always has water passing through it, nearly three years ago. It finally died (luckily we had the Liberty water-powered pump as a backup because the Zoeller failed three times in three years, but it was much older than that), so in a hurry, we bought the Wayne because our Liberty pump uses a LOT of water and we’re on metered water here. It’s only been six days since I installed it, but it seems to be better than the Zoeller so far. It’s quieter and appears to be pumping the water further out of the house than the Zoeller, which is resulting in there being significantly less water coming into the house. We’ve never not heard the slow trickle in the basement- until now. The sump well is almost dried up completely and while the weather has been dry this week, previous years, we’ve never seen the trickle stop, no matter what the weather. I don’t know about the longevity of it, but I’ll try to remember to update as it gets older. Installation was okay, but harder than they make it seem, probably because we were replacing a Zoeller pump, which had funky plumbing. I needed a 10″ x 1.5″ ABS pipe, a male to female threaded ABS end to go into the sump, and ABS glue to glue it all together. But I still have the Zoeller check valve above it (as you see in the image) because we just replaced that last year (it narrows to 1.5″ wide at the bottom). I’ve never installed a replacement sump before and I managed okay alone. I hope this helps if you, like us, are in a mad panic and trying to choose between the Zoeller and Wayne. edit: 2019-12-02, LOVE this sump. It’s so much quieter and quicker than our Zoeller. I love it more and more with time. Just came to update. 2021-12-11: two years in and it’s still going great. 10/10 recommend. Upped to 5 stars because I forget how hard it was to install and all I see are the sunshine and rainbows it pumps out.Read more
