Easy To Install & Quiet
I chose this product after a mechanical failure during hurricane Joaquin brought a ton of water and caused basement flooding while we were on vacation. Knowing I have battery backup and a secondary pump in case of significant water help relieve the anxiety as we remodel the basement.

The unit is super quiet compared to the Wayne 1/2 HP pump it replaced and can no longer be heard through the floor during heavy rains. The directions are poor but after enough review reading It was very easy to... more

Works Great - Short Power Cord Very Dissapointing
So far it has worked extremely well. Have not had any power outages so no experience with the backup pump yet.

The primary pump is extremely quiet.

Be aware that the alarm warning that the small pump has kicked on is relatively low volume and runs for a very short time. As far as I can tell there is no adjustment available for volume or duration.

I can't understand why a system that costs this much has such a short power cord. Even the piece of junk pump I replaced had an 8 foot... more

Working Great!
Received my new sump pump system on time and in great condition. Installation was easy and fit into the spot of the old system with no problem. The pump itself is much quieter than my old one, and I had to check to be sure it was even running during our last heavy rain. So far, so good!

It Is That Good
I just replaced an 11 yr old, noisy but still working sump pump. The old pump would wake us up out of a sound sleep. This new pump installed in about 20 minutes. I tested it with 5 gallons of water and could not hear it run and I thought oh no. But as I looked, the water was gone. The battery backup was just as quiet. I demonstrated the pumps ability to my wife and she said it s not running. I again had to show her how the water had disappeared. No longer do I have to run outside and fire up... more

Went In Easy & Works As Advertised
The sump pumps dropped in after glueing in the 1.5" exhaust pipe. Checked both the AC and battery backup pumps (by unplugging AC pump and filling basket with hose) and although a little slower, the battery backup pump has pretty good flow. Only two small gripes. The manual wasn't real clear on whether you need an external backflow valve, but you definitely do. I reused my old one. And the other is the wire length for the DC setup. It could stand to be a couple feet longer. Not... more

Wayne Wss30v 1/2 Hp Combination Sump Pump
After ordering my pump I received it in just two days. The install was very easy. The only other part I had to buy was a rubber boot after cutting my 1 1/2 inch pipe to fit. Purchased a marine battery at Walmart. Everything seems to be working just fine. I will be purchasing another for my mother in laws house after telling her about this one.

Well Built & Designed, Easy To Install Protection
After seeing how much damage and expense caused by a failed sump pump to the finished basement of my son's new home, I decided to install a battery backup sump pump system in our house. I researched many different brands and types available before finding this highly recommended unit on Sump Pump Direct. I ordered it the same day and received it less than 48 hrs. later with free standard shipping. I installed it myself in less than 2 hrs. with the recommended 75 amp. Interstate battery also... more

Great Pump
I purchased this Wayne combo pump about one month ago. The pump arrived in a couple days then I bought a marine battery at SAMs club (about 80 bucks). So far the pump works great, it's so quiet I can barely hear it. This pump was a snap to install and I would highly recommend it to everyone looking for a battery backup pump.

Pump Is Ok Best So Far
This pump is the best I found so far. Problem is (like all pumps) it starts hard causing a swoosh and shuts off hard causing a pop. Our application is such that the pump only rests between 15 to 45 seconds between 10 second pump run intervals due to high water table. At 25 seconds I find it most irritating, with the swoosh and the pop while trying to sleep.

Next I will try a 3 phase motor with variable frequency drive and closed loop level control to attempt much desired smoother operation.... more

Don,
Please keep in mind the sound that you're hearing most is not the pump. It's the sound of water flowing through the pipe. Water moving in this type of applications can't be silent. If it's not already, you may want to enclose the area around you sump pit, like a closet. Some people even soundproof the interior or around the discharge line and check valve.

Wayne 1/2 Combination Pump
Very easy to install runs quiet very pleased with the purchase of Wayne 1/2 HP combination pump model #WSS30V.
Another thing I like is the backup pump sits down in the well the same as the main pump, others I have had the back up is mounted above the main pump.

Successful Install
I was concerned that the 12V 1/3 HP back up pump could not overcome the head pressure from the 10' high 2" discharge pipe. I had previous problems with a pump that could could not open a check valve. I am pleased to report the Wayne 12V pump worked fine. I have installed the complete system all is OK.

I did have to modify the pump discharge connections to fit my sump. I cut about 1 -1/2" off each pump discharge pipe to lower it to line up with the existing 2" DISCHARGE LINE.

Excellent Choice
I had a 1/4 horse 120 volt sump that was at least 15 years old. In July we experienced a two hour power outage during a thunderstorm. The sump pump comes on approximately every six to seven minutes during heavy rainfall. I don't have a generator so I was forced to bucket brigade during the outage to avoid basement flooding. It's not fun at 3:00 am in the morning filling and emptying five gallon pails…. I installed the combination Wayne WSS30V and haven't had anymore sleepless nights... more

Easy Install. Great Features.
My old sump pump was 10 years old and I replaced it only because of its age. My sump is to protect my basement which has never been necessary in 10 years, and also to remove the rain water that collects and drains at the bottom of the exterior stairs to the sump.. We get about 6" of rain here a year.

My new Wayne with battery back up is whisper quiet, was quite easy to hook up to my existing drain line and I like the battery status lights and audible warnings that the pump makes when... more

Gary,
We're glad you're happy with you new sump pump system. The most likely reason you're seeing that light change from green to yellow is because of the battery you're using. These system are designed for use with marine deep cycle batteries. An auto battery will only work for short period of time and most likely cause you system to fail when you need it most.

I would suggest checking out our selection of batteries designed for use with these sump pump systems... Sump Pump Batteries

Nice Setup, But Off To A Bad Start.
This is a hard-to-find combination of both a backup pump and a battery backup system -- two things no vital sump system should be without. Setup was easy enough, although some cords/wiring could stand to be of longer length.

What was a bit unnerving however was: as I tested the system by running water into the basin, I watched the main pump’s float rise up, slightly sideways, and work its way right out of the hole on the switch where the float pole connects, and fall off. So I have the... more

Very Satisfied
I purchased the Wayne combo pump unit after also considering the Basement Watchdog unit. I chose Wayne because there seemed to be fewer issues with the battery. The BW combo pump requires a proprietary battery that you must fill with acid. The Wayne combo pump uses a maintenance-free marine deep cycle battery. I'm extremely pleased with the Wayne pump. It was very easy to hook up and has functioned flawlessly. Just what I was looking for at a very good price.

Work Perfectly
I chose Wayne because of their Maintenance Free Battery. Both pumps work perfectly from the day I installed them.

The only thing I would suggest is to simplify the instructions. After sorting thru a pile about a ½” thick covering all types of pumps, except the ones I bought, the instructions that pertained to my pumps would have fit on one side of a postcard, a diagram with key, period.

Except for the instruction fiasco, an excellent product!!

Recently Installed
Pleased so far with combo I purchased last year with different switch. Recently installed new combo with float switch in my second sump to replace Zoeller combo pumps. Selected this combo for under 15" footprint with backup pump low in sump, more powerful backup pump in event of primary pump failure, heavy duty check valve on both pumps, pre-assembled for easy install, and works with deep cycle gel battery.

Quiet And Powerful!
Did a ton of research on a combo sump pump system for my underground basement that handles a lot of water due to a french drainage system. Decided to go with the Wayne combo because of it's backup pump capacity being so powerful combined with the great price. After I hooked it all up an added bonus was how quiet this pump is. You can barely hear it pump when you're standing right above it! Plus 5 year warranty is great!

The first pump shipped to me did not function as advertised. I thought I had just spent about $700 and had nothing to show for it. I complained to Sump Pumps Direct. The directed me to call tech support at Wayne Pumps. I called Wayne and explained my application. They said that since it didn't work, I must have a defective pump. They shipped ma a second pump that works like a charm.

It replaced a 1/3 hp we had to buy 3.5 years ago when our original pump failed and basement was flooded, Pump is really needed, even in drought season, pump will run one or twice a day. The new pump is so quiet compared to any of the pumps we had before.

Wayne Wss30v = Peace Of Mind
Our house had a sump but no pump. I thought our house would never need a sump pump. My reasons: 1) We are not in a flood plain 2) We live at the top of hill we supposedly live in a semi- arid climate 3) It hardly ever rains here and when it does rain, it doesn't rain for very long. Boy, was I wrong! We recently got monsoon rain that lasted weeks. The ground got saturated and we got flooded with an inch of standing water.

After thoroughly mitigating the issue, I researched... more

Great Product So Far
After heavy rains, we needed help in our basement so we installed the Wayne combination pumps. The 1/2 HP primary pump works like a champ and is very quiet. No thumps in the check valves.

Tested the back-up and it works as advertised. It's also easy to install as the combo unit comes drop in ready. Bottom line.......I'd buy this combo again if I had the need.

All My Bases Covered Now!
I live in a very low area in, when we get 2-3 inches of rain in a day or two my sump pump will go off every 45 seconds. I purchased a generator for power outage and now i purchased this battery back up. It was very easy to install, probably about an hour total with installing eye bolts and small bungee cords to help support the heavy adapter.

We have had one rain storm so far of 3 inches and I feel much better now knowing all my bases are covered with the primary and battery back up sump... more

Fast Delivery
Order this combination system to replace a single 1/4 Flotech pump which was 22 years old. I placed my order on Friday morning and by Saturday afternoon the Wayne combination system was at my doorstep. And for the record, I did not order special delivery service.

As for the installation of the Wayne, it truly is a drop in the crock process. Checked all the fittings before installation, adjusted the back up float switch and I was in business. I spent more time resealing my crock cover... more

No Worries
After completion of a basement renovation, I needed some insurance against water backup from my sump pit in case of a power outage. I ordered and received the Wayne WSS30V and installed it. Installation was simple. Before sealing my sump pit I tested both the main and battery backup pumps.

To my surprise, the battery backup pump was able to not only keep up with, but reduce the water level in the sump pit from a wide open faucet/hose. This far exceeds a competitors pump I installed in... more

Installed Just In The Nick Of Time
I had finished installing the sump pump with battery backup but had not hooked up the battery. I have power failures frequently especially with thunderstorms.

I went to the hardware store for some conduit and a storm hit while I was in town. when I got home water was standing and the electricity was off so I grabbed the battery and hooked it up.

It worked fine and in no time the water was pumped out. I was surprised at the volume of water the backup pump flushed out in a short period of... more

Just What We Needed
We wanted a sump pump that we could rely on even if the power goes out and the WSS30V fills the bill. The pump is very compact, installed easily, and does exactly what we wanted. It appears to be very high quality.

Easy to install. Works fantastic, I can't believe how quiet this pump is, even the back up pump is quiet. I will never buy another brand. Hopefully I won't need to.

Very Pleased With This Product And Company
Couldn't be happier with my experience. While pricier than a typical builders model, this pump with built-in back-up is worth every penny.

The full installation of the sump pump, along with built-in back-up, would have only taken 30 minutes except for the recommended 2-hour cure time on the PVC pipe glue. Shipping was unbelievable.

Ordered the pump Monday morning with normal shipping, and it was on my front step the following day prior to noon! It also comes with a 5-year warranty. The... more

So Far So Good
This pump was easy to set up. I just had to buy some 1 1/2" PVC, glue, and a 1 1/2" to 1 1/2" rubber coupler. I cut the PVC to length and glued it to the pump, waited a couple days to make sure it was dry, then attached the coupler to my existing PVC pipe and the PVC I had attached to the pump.

I tested the main pump and the battery backup by unplugging the main pump and both seem to work fine. The pump is very quiet, I only hear water rushing and no longer have a banging... more

Impressed With Wayne And Sump Pumps Direct
Bought this unit to replace a still-working Flotec 1/2 hp main pump and a Basement Watchdog back-up. The Basement Watchdog saved my tail dozens of times in the last several years, but finally gave up the ghost during an extended power outage coupled with torrential rain. I can't say anything bad about either pump, but wow is this new Wayne set-up nice.

It is much quieter and seems to be built to last. I also like how it cleaned up the pit (just a single discharge pipe - not conjoining... more

So Far It Is Great
We installed it 2 weeks ago. Very simple installation. All of the check valves and wires were there. We only needed to go out for a short piece of 1-1/2" PVC pipe, 2 elbows to align the pipes, and the right glue. We leveled the bottom of the pit with some bricks and dropped it right in. all the wires were there and can only be hooked up one way. Tested the floats on each pump. Very quiet compared to the old pump which you could hear anywhere in the house. Long term we will have to see... more

Sump Pump Improvement
I replaced a 20-yr old sump pump (still working) with this combo model. Heavy rain this spring caused sump and drain tile backup, and I lost carpeting and drywall.

It was a bear to install, but only because the discharge pipe was routed out the side of the basket - so very little space was available as this pump was slightly higher than the old one. So with minimal clearance it is a little askew with the flexible connector barely getting enough room between the pump and discharge... more

Trading Up
I had a sump pump installed about 10 years ago after repeated water problems in my split foyer house. Since it was time to replace the pump, I decided to put in a pump with a backup system. I searched around and the Wayne combination looked like the best value. I was able to install it myself. Now, if the water table gets high again I have a new pump. If that one quits or can't handle the load, the backup pump kicks in. And if the power goes out the backup pump still works because of the... more

Redundancy Is Key!
I tried to assemble my own parts to achieve redundancy, but after spending a lot of $$ on Inverters and Power Control device to switch singular pump to Battery Backup in Power Outage, I discovered that my aged Singular Pump sometimes failed to switch on (float failure). This New solution allows "dual pump" redundancy and "dual power" redundancy, with one easy to install discharge line (not 2). Yes, you need to buy additional 1 or 2 marine batteries, but the total cost is a... more

My House Was Ruined From Sandy 10/29/12
I have been rebuilding my crawl space and my first floor since last year. My crawl is now waterproofed and now I just installed two pumps with back up batteries. I am prepared as much as anyone could be for another disaster. I really hope I never have to use them. If there is even a small flood my house will remain dry. The delivery was very fast and the price was at least $50-75.00 less than the local stores. I would recommend this site to all the homeowners and contractors in the US.
