  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

Durablity Doesn't Have To Be Expensive
I used this Wayne RPP50 pump to replaced pumps that cost me $400.00+ and don't last any longer. This pump replaced a RPP50 that has ran for 3 years 24/7.
Pros: Price, Durable, I'd Buy It Again, Had In Stock Shipped Quickly

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

140' Up Hill
My septic tank is 140' away and 2' above my drain line. Put the pump in a 275 gal. tank 4' in the ground. Works great, the 2" line drains back to the pump tank, to keep from freezing. The pump does not kick or move when it starts. I have had a Wayne pool pump for several years, that works great, so I know they make good pumps.
Pros: Quiet, Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: No Cons So Far

My comment is not about the pump, which replaced the same make pump that we had had for many years but the good price that I paid and the very fast shipping that we received.

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.
Pros: Price, Quiet, Easy To Use
Cons: Packaging

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

Pumps Too Slow
The pump acts as if it is partially clogged up. It just pumps at a trickle for about five min instead of a quick ejection like others I have.
Pros: Price, Quiet
Cons: Pump Only Trickles For About Five Minuets Should Be Faster

Product Expert
Ron,
You may be having some issues with the pump if that's the way the pump is operation. I would suggest reviewing the troubleshooting section in your owner's manual. If you're still having issues, I would suggest contacting Wayne directly @ (800) 237-0987
