  7 Questions
Q: Is this pump use 110v or 230v?

by Anthony T from Texas on September 17, 2013

A: The Wayne model RPP50 is rated at 110 volts. Actually, most of our sewage pumps are rated for 110 volts. The few that are not, will be noted under the features on the pump product page if they are 240 volt rated.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: how big of a pump do I need for a bath room in the basement.
by Art Miranda from Indiana on June 12, 2012

A: The Wayne model RPP50 would be more than sufficient or you might look at the Superior 1/2 HP Cast Iron Sewage Pump System model 93015 or the Bur-Cam 4/10 HP Heavy Duty Cast Iron Sewage Pump System model 400419T. These systems would provide everything you need with the exception of the PVC for your discharge and vent.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Do you have to use float switch or can you manually turn the pump on and off. it is a Wayne RPP50 - 1/2 HP Cast Iron Tether Float Switch Sewage Pump
by Gerald Baker from Pennsylvania on May 10, 2012

A: The Wayne model RPP50 does come with a "piggyback" style tether float switch and can be operated manually if you wish. Just be sure that you do NOT run it dry.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Is it ok if this pump gets submerged in 4 feet of water
by Tom Bice (Thomas C. Bice) from Wisconsin on December 20, 2011

A: No problem, however please keep in mind the the float would activate and drain most of your basin and would continue to operate in that fashion as long as the basin is filling with water.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Wayne RPP50 - 1/2 HP Cast Iron Tether Float Switch Sewage Pump.
The spec sheet states it runs at 6.3 amps but I have seen other ads elsewhere that show the same Wayne pump RPP50-1/2hp at 15 hp. Which is the accurate amps/ ^.3 or 15 amps?

by Gary from Louisiana on May 17, 2011

A: The 6.3 amp rating is the motor full load amps and the 15 amp rating is the minimum circuit amperage required for the pump.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: RE: MODEL RPP50 IT HAS A 2" DISCHARGE. MY TRUCK WELL HAS A 1 1/2" PIPE TRU THE CONCRETE. CAN I REDUCE THIS PUMP FROM 2 TO 1 1/2 WITHOUT MESSING IT UP?
by FRED ESPOSITO from Florida on April 04, 2011

A: For sewage pumps, it is recommended that you keep the same discharge size since the pump is capable of handling 2" solids.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: I 'm finishing my basement and I need a ejector pump since my main sewer pump is three feet above the basement floor. I'm putting in a sink, toilet, sink and a wet bar. What type of ejector pump would be best in my situation.
by Tim from New Jersey on January 30, 2011

A: What you just described is a standard sewage/ejector pump application.

A 4/10 or 1/2 HP sewage pump would meet your needs.

If you’re looking for a basic sewage pump, look no further than this Wayne model.

For typical sewage removal needs, this pump gets the job done

The Wayne RPP50 is constructed out of cast iron which provides excellent heat dispersion and protection from corrosion. If you want a pump to last for a long time, cast iron is the way to go.

It also features a 2” discharge which is a standard size. That means if you are replacing or upgrading your current pump, you’ll avoid any major... more

Great Pump - So Far
Our old waste pump float worked loose so didn't kick the sump pump on when it got full. We weighed the float down and it wore a hole in the pump so it flipped the breaker. We replaced it with this pump and have had no trouble with it all. We really like the design of the float so that it will not break off. Have only had it installed for a couple of weeks. Hopefully it will last for years to come.
Pros: Price, Durable, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Install

So Far, So Good.
Works well so far (about 3-4 weeks) and seems to be built well. Couple of things. Don't forgot to drill the 1/16th hole in the discharge pipe like I did before you seal up your tank. I didn't want to take a chance leaving it that way so I had to reopen the tank, drill the hole and reseal it again. The hole is supposed to help prevent air lock of the pump should the tank become empty.

My tank also has 2 recessed holes in the bottom which 2 of the 3 legs of the old pump fit into. I guess it... more

Happy All Around
- pain-free shopping experience

- easy access to technical information

- this pump is quieter than previous model

- although 1/4 HP lower, it still pumps basement sump quickly (10' of lift)

(Note: it took a few tries to get the pump oriented (rotated) in a way that would allow the float switch to move freely - but I think this would be true of any pump with this style of float switch.

Jefre,
Most switches do need to be carefully positioned so that they function properly. It's good that you took notice of that.

My Ziegler died after 6 years of light use, not too impressed with a $350 pump. I found SPD online and they had the best prices and good reviews of them. I ordered the Wayne due to price and reviews, so far so good but only time will tell. The thing that impressed me the most was the pump was on my porch the next day! Unless they're down the street, that's crazy. Thanks guys.

Float Cut In
Cuts in too high. Would like to see it lower like maybe 12 or 13 inches.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, High Quality

Lenny,
The Cut-In set from the factory is 16". You should be able to adjust it to make it turn on in less than that by a few inches.

From the owner's manual...
The pump has a detachable tether switch with a piggyback plug. The length of the tether (distance of cord from float to clamp) should not be set shorter than 3-1/4 inches and should not be used in a basin smaller than 14 inches in diameter. If using a differential other than the factory setting, be sure when the pump shuts off at least 4” of fluid is left in the basin so the impeller remains.

Super Easy Install
I needed to pump sewage from my new granny "house" to the septic tank at the main house. Just a few feet vertical, but about 100ft horizontal.

I had not installed anything like this before. Was super easy to install. Directions are clear and show you what valves and unions you need.

I was surprised how quiet the pump is. It empties the basin in about 5 seconds. The floating switch seems to work well. Althought you probably want to make sure that floating switch never gets stuck... more

Good Value For Size & Cost
Original sump lasted 27 years and was loud, which I did not mind for I could hear it turn on and off. The new pump is very quite and works well. This is in a basement application where it does not get heavy use. Installation was easy I just had to make the hole in the lid for resevoir larger, the original pump had one electrical cord. The replacement has two, no big issue just sealed it with silicone.

Good Pump, Good Price
Pump arrived by Fedex 2 days after I placed order. The box had a hole in it were the pump broke through.No damage to the pump. Packaging should addressed. Installed the pump only problem was the float hit the sump basin wall. Made an adjustment on the clamp which holds the cord for the float to the pump.That gave me the clearence needed to make the float engage the pump. The pump is very quite. So far so good. The pump has been installed for 1 month with no problems. Pump is used in a basement... more
