If you’re looking for a heavy-duty pump, choose an iON. These pumps were originally sold only by plumbers, contractors and plumbing distributors. Now you have the opportunity to buy what the professionals do.

These pumps are built to last, bottom line. With a volute and motor housing made of cast iron and stainless steel, they will provide years of reliable operation. They also use a cast iron impeller which extends the life of the pump even longer.

iON pumps use high efficiency motors... more

Great Pump, But Tricky Plastic Discharge Coupling
Love the pump. Great performance. Great switch. Quiet, powerful, efficient, and small footprint size. I can fit 2 of them in my sump pit and they can run much longer on battery backup power supply.

My only complaint - the threaded discharge coupling is plastic, and was very difficult to thread a 2" pipe to. It kept wanting to cross-thread, and I had to be VERY careful not to strip it or break it when attaching the discharge pipe. Not sure if there was a slight mismatch in the threads... more

Design Flaw
I, like many reviewers had trouble threading the 2" pipe into the flange on the base. I wound up taking the plastic flange off the cast iron base and screwed the flange onto the pipe. I then screwed the flange back onto the base. I accidentally hit the assembled pump and it fell over and the attached pipe broke the flange. I called Metropolitan Industries, the manufacturer, and tried to order the flange. I was told I could pick it up at any plumbing supply store. I went to two... more

Arrived quickly. Very powerful. Hope I never need it, but did have high water in pit before. Really pushes water up and a long run out.

Its A Workhorse!
In mid-Michigan we received 4.5 inches of rain in a 30 hour period, last weekend! I had put my Storm Pro 3/4 hp. pump in last November. It hadn't had much of a workout until this past storm. The water in my sump pit got to 3 inches of the top of pit, and the pump had to continuously run for almost that entire time, but it kept up! I was ready to plug in my backup sump pump but it wasn't needed. During this time my neighbors on both sides flooded. This pump with 2in. discharge made the... more

Storm Pro Sump Pump
We recently had severe rain storms that we had never experienced before. Although our old low cost pedestal pump did not breakdown, it could not quite keep up with the flow of water coming into the basement. We did have a small spare sump that we had to use in tandem and they, together, barely kept up. With that experience we had to re-evaluate our sump pump setup.

We looked at three different models Sump Pump Direct had and decided to go with this one which was considered the best. We... more

This Pump Is Great!
Great pump! I previously had a 3/4 HP sump pump with a 1 1/2" output and we had several hard rains and the pump could not keep up with it. Now with this pump with a 2" output no problem! It handled the heavy rains. I'm so happy!
Pros: Quiet, I'd Buy It Again

Screw Thread Distorted
Despite numerous attempts by myself and friend, we could not screw a 2" pvc threaded coupling into the pump outlet, even after we purchased a second one from another store. Ii called the returns number on the package, and they shipped out another female outlet. This worked so long as i did not tighten the 2 retaining screws too tightly. If I tightened them as tight as on the purchased pump, the connector did not fit. seems the tightening distorts the female thread. Seems the factory... more

"i Installed The Beast"
The area I live in mid-Michigan, has high water table. In late winter and early spring we have melting snow and heavy rains. We have 4ft. crawlspace under house, which flooded a couple of times because box store sump pump 3/4 hp. could not keep up! I have installed Storm Pro 3/4 hp. pump with 2in. discharge. Im hopefull this pump can handle the heavy rains and melting snow? For backup I have old 3/4 hp. pump in pit with flexible 1-1/2 in. discharge line. Ive also installed loud water alarm in... more

Stormpro 3/4 Hp— So Far, So Good
I can't give a 5 star rating yet. The pump has only been in a week so it hasn't had to work hard since there has been little rain. In heavy rain, I get a very high water flow from outside. Surprisingly the contractor pump it replaces worked well for the past 6 years since the house was built. But it finally gave up its ghost. Since this is twice the size and more HP I expect it to work even better. It does drain the sump very quickly I'm happy to say. The larger 2 inch outlet helps.

Denis,
In regards to you comments about the flow switch. Having a 6-8 inch pumping range is ideal for standard sump pit. We've never had any issues regarding short cycling with this pump/switch.

Good Pump
I like the fact that they give you the pump ratings with GPH with feet of lift. That measurement really matters and is often not published by lesser manufacturers. This pump kept up with the rainiest weather in the history of Illinois. My other brand 3/4 HP pump had to be augmented in the heaviest of downpours but this pump kept up, quietly and effortlessly.

You have to use caution and I'd recommend a little bit of lubricant when screwing on the 2" to PVC adapter - but the pump works... more

Excellent Pump!!
I have currently had this pump for 3.5 years. It pumps a minimum of twice a day for 10 minutes each time it runs. Right now we are having record setting rainfall in the Denver metro area and this pump has not missed a beat. Sometimes it cycles 10 times a day and runs for up to a half hour due to the abnormal amount of water flowing in the creek right behind my house.

I remove it from the sump and clean it once a year just to make sure it all looks good the impeller still spins like the day... more

I have a huge problem with ground water. My old pump never kept up, this new pump has no problem and empties the pit in seconds. I am now worry free.

Love The New Sump Pump!
After replacing 4 water heaters in 3 years, we figured it was time to invest in a new sump pit and sump pump.

Earlier this year (2014) we had torrential rain that resulted in flood alerts in our area (Northern VA). Sure enough, when I went down to our unfinished basement, we had water gushing into the area that was so strong it looked like a river. The little sump pit and pump that a former homeowner had installed could not keep up with the flow and we lost the heater.

We replaced the... more

What I Expected
Pump is doing exactly what I have expected it to. With the recent rain we've been having in Ohio, the pump has performed as expected.

The only problem I have is I occasionally have to remove the pump and clean out the filter as it gets quite dirty over time. Still looking for a way to prevent this from happening.

No More Floods
My garage is under my master suite and has flooded 3 times this summer. Being below grade it has to deal with lots of water. My new pump deals with this easily. I also have purchased Wayne backup pumps from you and as I'm happy to report they are also functioning well and keeping my stuff dry.

Discharge Hose
I got this discharge hose from Sump Pumps Direct for one reason- PRICE!!!!!!!!

The other hoses that I looked at were so much more money. I went to a big box store and they wanted almost $3.00/ft for a 2" discharge pool hose, and it didn't even have the connections on it.

I used this hose during Hurricane Sandy and it performed great. It was easy to connect to my 2" PVC Pipe which has a male thread connection. There were no leaks at the connection, and the hose was plenty long... more

Stormpro Ba-75m
I needed a pump that could handle more water than my current 1/3hp upright that I have used for years. Normally this pump meets my requirements most of the year, except in mid winter when it warms up and we get rain instead of snow. With the ground still frozen the water can perk and I end up with a lot of water in my cellar which has a dirt floor.

This happens again in early spring when the water level is up in the lake in front of my house. In the spring, as long as we don't get a lot... more
