Failed After Three Year
Just tested this battery after three and one half years connected to back up sump pump. Never had power outage where we needed it to work, so it's just been sitting there on it's trickle charger waiting for an emergency. Tested it and it did not run the pump. Red light came on. Took it to OReilly Auto to be tested and it came up as bad. 200 CCA.

This battery is supposed to last 10 years. Did not make it.

Great Solution
We had a 23 hour power failure and water got into our lower level because without power there was no pumping of the sump. I ordered the Wayne WSS30 and the Wayne 75 amp battery. Installation was simple and the unit drains the sump in a few seconds using either the regular pump or the back-up unit. FYI, I have an eleven foot rise. The only mistake on my part was not installing the system before the disaster. Worth every penny!

So Far So Good
Bought the kit and battery together. Kit got here first, battery took a couple extra days. The kit was easy to install and the pump drains my sump in no time.

The battery was a little pricey but has worked well so far. Would have probably been better off buying a battery locally...less cost and no wait.

I have had the system for for a couple of months and so far so good.

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 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!!

Very Pleased
The unit arrived in a very timely manner. I was not aware that the PVC fittings came with the unit as well. It's just as the picture shown on the web site. So that save's a trip to the hardware store. Very easy to install, and it works like a champ.

Don't Know.....
I am a woman in my 60's living alone. A plumber who was working on something else told me that I needed to replace the battery in my backup sump pump and that it would cost $400. So I looked on the internet for a company from whom I could purchase the battery and found this company near my home. The man on the phone was helpful and friendly. A friend was kind enough to install it for me. However, the light on the pump is still yellow ("Low battery") after more than week of... more

Barbara,
It would be a rare occurrence that you would received a dead battery. The issue may be with the controller/charger on the system. If you can locate the owner's manual for the backup system, the troubleshooting section would be the best place to start.

Big Heavy Battery
Still early days but stays "green" on the charger and can relax during the storms as we are now covered if the power is out a day or two. Decent price and quick ship.
