  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.

Great Replacement For A 1101/1102rp Pump
The bearings in my Power Flush 1101 system's pump failed after 10 years of use. The replacement 1102RP pump was going to cost nearly $400. I found the RPP50 and it was a similar size and pumping spec (I only needed 10' of lift). The only complication was the float switch that comes with the RPP50 won't work in the Power Flush's tank.

Originally I thought I'd be able to just remove the original pump's power cord and install it through the waterproof connection on the RPP50. But I found... more

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.

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

Quick Shipment
The pump showed up and was quickly installed. Only a few weeks on it so far but all is good. Very quiet pump.

Time will tell but this is the third pump in the last 16 years so I am hoping this one lasts a while

Good Pump And Price
I have a pump up septic system that stopped working after 2 years. I purchased this pump for less than half what I paid for my previous pump. It has been installed for about 3 months now with no problems. The distribution box it pumps to is about 10' higher than the pump and about 80' away. The pump works in tandem with a septic alarm as well. I bought this pump based upon the online reviews.

Great
I recently bought this pump to replace my original pump for my basement toilet. I looked everywhere to buy the original but the price was too high like 400 dollars more.

The only thing I had trouble with was the float value. The one I had was different so with a little engineering it works great.

What a charming little poop pump! Works great like a poop pump should. Quieter than the pump it replaced. Now I'm not afraid to eat that four day old burrito.

Installed 10/19/2014
Since this is a newly installed unit, I cannot really say anything about durability or reliability. It is being used for a basement shower sump, and so far is working fine.

The pump is less noisy than the previous pumps I used, and is not even noticeable going on or off while showering. I'm hoping this sewage pump, which is being used for waste water only, will prove to be more durable than the previous water only, non-sewage pump.

NOTE: Be aware that the piggyback switch wire is about a... more
