  9 Questions
Q: Is this pump rated for outdoor use? I have a drainage sump at a low point of the driveway.
by John B from Texas on May 13, 2015

A: Most any sump or sewage pump can be installed outdoors, however all electrical connections must be done indoors or they need to be very well protected from the elements.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: Can the plugs on this pump be cut and hard wired without any issue?
by Ralph from Kentucky on March 10, 2015

A: That is a field alteration and warranty is voided Yes it can be done NO WARRANTY if the cords are cut.
by Jim, Product Expert
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

Quiet But Fragile
This pump seems to be built heavy and sturdy, and it runs very quiet. However, sadly it has a very fragile plastic impeller. A small amount of pea gravel size debris that was sucked in destroyed the impeller within moments. It's very hard to find an impeller for this pump. I would not recommend this pump.

Jim, the Sump Pump Expert
Product Expert
Bruce,
Unfortunately, this is the major drawback of a thermoplastic impeller and not considered a manufacturing defect. Most sump and sewage pumps that we offer will include this type of impeller and will handle most applications. If you believe that you will be using a pump that may be encountering small bits of gravel or other hard material, you may need to consider a pump with a cast iron impeller.

These are available as a special order, on most brand pumps and will add to the final cost. There are also other steps you might be able to take to preserve the life of the plastic impeller like cleaning you basin on a regular basis if this is a regular problem and raising the pump off the bottom of your basin a few inches.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Sincerely,
Jim Owiecki

Very Poor Quality
Very poor quality pump went out in a week! Don't waste your money buy a high quality pump and save your time by doing the job once. The float is poor quality as well, had to change it out after two days. Bad product all the way around!

Best Price By Far
I went to price pumps in my area and the best price was $488.00. I went online saw your site I almost didn't believe the price, $139.00 so I read the comments and decided to buy it. I installed it myself. It works great. Thank you.

Sewer Pump
It would have been nice if the cord would have been about 3 foot longer and the float switch would not work. Had to take back out of hole to check it out. Then it started to work not sure what was wrong, it was floating ok, but it seems to be working ok now.

Great
Bought this pump for basement bath. It has been working now for about a month with no problems. It's pretty quiet - maybe because it's located about 65" underground.

Good Pump
This pump really works good in my gray water sump basin. Pumping the gray water out of the septic system into the field lines with the automatic float switch it is trouble free!

Works For Me
Let this be more of a testament of the fine service I received rather than a review of the RPP50. I ordered this New Year's Eve and received it on January 2, WOW ! There was a holiday in between too. The rep told me she would "try" to get it out on the day I ordered and she came through for me. This store could have easily just put it off and headed out early for their New Year's Eve celebrations but didn't. They really came through for me.
