Really Solid Product
Just installed it. Works very well. The instructions were a little confusing in that they specified how to install a check valve, but the unit comes with check valves. Also, do you need to install a bleeder hole to avoid air lock. A quick phoned call to the Wayne customer service confirmed that no bleeder hole was needed and yes indeed the unit comes with check valves so no need to install more. Overall the unit appears solid and should perform well. We will see. Ask me again in a year
Pros: Quiet, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Fast
Cons: The instructions were confusing for the specific make and model.

Seems like a high quality product. No issues for me to install it. I was under the impression that the back flow valve was already installed on the unit. I did use my old valve and it was no problem hooking the unit up.I have constant water in my sump area so it will get a work out. Appears to be a good product for the price. I also bought the recommended battery with it.
Pros: Quiet, Price, Easy To Use, Features

Awesome Sump Pump System!!!
This Wayne combination primary and backup sump pump system is amazing. It was easy to unpack and install. It replaced my Coleman primary sump pump (gave me 4 years) and my Watch Dog back-up system which gave me 7 good years. No more adding sulfuric acid to batteries ever again! I hated this process with the Watch Dog. This Wayne sump pump cranks out effortless power and operates super quietly. It's so quiet I've gone down to my rec room several times just to make sure it's working, lol...My... more

No Sleepless Nights!
Product came already assembled, I made one cut and inserted a clunkless check valve, (just to insure quietness, might not be necessary in all installs), and in 20 minutes it was ready to go! It can't get any easier! I did buy my own battery, and it works fine. No sleepless nights here! I wished all home plumbing jobs were this easy! Good price, quick ship! Awesome.

Wss30v Review
Purchased 10/2017. Like previous reviews, the documentarion is seriously lacking. However, if you are modestly handy it is an easy install. My only complaint is the advice I recieved from the distributor and a local HD employee regarding the connection of the “Y” to the discharge. Both advised just resting the discharge pipe in the “Y”. What I ended up doing and advise others to do is cement a female threaded adapter to the “Y” and male threaded adapter to the discharge. This makes a positive... more

Needed Battery Back-up System
I was going out of town for a couple of weeks and couldn't deal with the prospect of all the stuff in my basement getting wet if there was a power outage. Shopped on the internet and settled on the WSS30V as best to meet my needs. Installed as replacement to existing pump the week before I went away. Tested to see that it worked as advertised and left home expecting a dry basement upon return. Seems to have worked well -- discharging water from 2 dehumidifiers, AC condensate, and external... more

Doing The Job
My basement is prone to flooding when we get heavy rains and when it does rain, the pump gets a workout. I needed a pump system that one could depend on and this pump fits the bill. I spend the winters in Florida and I need a dependable system since I am not here to monitor the basement. I have had the pump for 5 months now and it is so quiet, sometimes you wonder if it is even working! (But you know it is since the basement stays dry.)

We had one power outage when we were in Florida... more

"The item came quickly and was as advertised. I had one question about the pump before I installed it, and customer service replied instantly and quickly with the answer. I am not a plumber so I appreciated their expert help. I felt the service was better than you could get at the big box store since all they deal with are Sump Pumps Direct and they know their business. They are experts about pumps. It was actually easier to order from them than to take the time to drive to the big box store. I highly recommend this company due to their pricing and customer service."

Great Product. Easy Install.
Product was easy to use and was installed in a little over a half an hour. The instructions are not easy to follow as are not for the combined unit but rather for both the primary and backup separate. However, because the product is substantially put together and check valves are in place, very little is difficult to figure out. It is as close to drop-in ready as possible. We have found the unit is very quite compared to our previous unit, and are hopeful that works for many years to come.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use
Cons: Bad Instructions

Great Combination Pump
This combination Wayne pump is a good fit for my sump needs. I had to re-plumb the pumps to better fit my sump but that was easy. My sump is about 5 1/2 ft deep and I had to tie a rope on the two pumps to lower them down the sump. The two power cords were too short (6ft) and barely reached out of the sump. I could use a 1ft extension cord on the a/c pump and it works great - nice and quiet. The 12v power cord was a problem. It uses non standard connectors and I had to splice in some wire... more

High Quality, Super Quiet, Well Built- Very Pleased!
I replaced my 10 year old sump pump which was running all the time. We moved into the house a little over a year ago and the sump pit was 'sealed' thus the home inspectors would not check it because it was also used as a passive vent for our radon system. The old unit would run in a decent/steady rain, almost every 30 secs. It would also take a while to eliminate the water up a 9' rise and out of the house. It just sounded like it was about to die. With plans to eventually finish the... more

Installed easily. Have to replace wall outlet with duplex to accommodate the charger. In this area the sump pump outlet is supposed to be a single plug. We installed with the existing check valve in place so we have two check valves - could not tell from the instructions or online if this is correct.

Great Product, Super Quiet
I bought this to replace a Zoeller 98 and Perma-Sump 2011 combination system. It was easy to swap out, and the pump is VERY quiet. I could hear the Zoeller pretty well from the main level from the house, and you can just barely hear the Wayne pump when we are in the basement. It was running and I told my wife that the sump was actually running and she had no idea. I will be adding a second sump soon (so it will get the full GPH on battery only during power failure) and will be using this pump... more

I Really Like The Pumps And The Price Was Great!
I have always wanted a battery backup for my sump but never took the time to shop around. I finally took the time and found the Wayne pump from your company to be a very affordable price. I not only get a battery back up but along with it a new 110 volt pump. My old one is nearly 7 years old and since I have a huge sump I have hooked up the new 110 volt pump at a cinderblock higher as a back up for when the old one gives up. And if the power goes out then the battery back up setting at 2... more

"Buying was easy and it arrived right on time. I just would have liked more information on the operation of the tiny float switch on the battery pump. I have no idea how that thing makes and breaks electrical contact and how long does it run after initial start up. It looks like it would only pump about one inch of water with each cycle. Could someone come back with an answer? Would really appreciate it. Thanks!"

Jim, the Sump Pump Expert

Lonnie,
The backup part of this system is the Wayne ESP25. The manual states... The control box has a DC charger designed to shorten the recharging time of your battery, and to prevent overcharging. In addition, the control box has a time delay which keeps the pump from repeated, short cycles when it shuts off. The time delay feature will allow the pump to run 20-25 seconds after the switch reaches the off positio Here's the link for the ESP25 Owner's Manual For more information, Wayne can be reached directly @ (800) 237-0987

First Time Sump Pump Installer
I had a sump pump that fail for some unknown reason. I unplugged and plugged it back in and it started working again. But I could not trust it any longer. I thought about putting just a backup pump in but why bother if I did not trust the main pump. So I replaced it with the Wayne WSS30V. Quick and easy since it did not require any major discharge plumbing changes. It is very quite and the backup pump works great and quickly empties the pit. The battery case has a alarm that goes off... more

This is a great pump. Having both pumps connected and running in to one pipe is very convenient. The quality of this unity is unmatched to other at the big chain stores. I was shocked as to the next day delivery! I bought 2 units because our home has a engineered basement. The installation was 20 min. I would highly recommend this company and product.

Great Product For The Money
Good product, install was straight forward. Took some finesse to get both pumps in the pit without the float hitting the sides. Pump is very quiet and performs well under heavy load. Tested back up pump as well and works good. Only gripe is the wires for the back up pump are too short. My pit is 24 inches deep and I will probably end up extending the sensor and pump harnesses so I can mount the back up higher.

If money wasn't a consideration I'd get the zoeller system with a solid state... more

So Far So Good
Very easy to install. My father-in-law had it in within 20-30 minutes. Pulled the old one out, set it next to the new Wayne, cut the pipe to where it needed to be cut, put the Wayne in the pipe, dropped it in the hole and screwed back on the pipe. Very simple. It was raining that day and the hole had filled up a bit while we were doing this and as soon as we plugged it in, it ran the water up. We then hooked up the back up to the battery and plugged that in. Very easy.

Wayne Makes A Good Combination Ac/battery Back Up System
This is a very good AC powered and battery back up system. The only recommendation I would have is for Wayne to have a better charging system for the backup. It takes too long to re-charge the battery after it has comsumed some of its charge.

Piece Of Mind At A Great Price
Installed as a replacement for an older pump. So easy to install even someone with no mechanical knowledge could do it. The pump is very quiet and am amazed at how fast it empties the sump basket...could be my old pump, which was also a 1/2 hp was just getting old, but this thing takes about half the time to pump it out. Having the backup pump is a huge piece of mind for when we are away on the weekends.

Nice, Compact And Quiet Unit
Bought this unit because it is a combination 120 volt and 12 volt . Had a rain water flood where my old 120 volt pump had stopped and I didn't know it. Five days of cleanup told me I needed more that a one pump system. Nice compact dual system with one discharge meant I didn't need to run another discharge pipe. Much quieter than my old pump and the check valve that was on that setup. Nice to have a 12 volt backup that will alarm if the 120 volt power goes out. Much better piece of mind.

Easy Install. Great Features.
My old sump pump was 10 years old and I replaced it only because of its age. My sump is to protect my basement which has never been necessary in 10 years, and also to remove the rain water that collects and drains at the bottom of the exterior stairs to the sump.. We get about 6" of rain here a year.

My new Wayne with battery back up is whisper quiet, was quite easy to hook up to my existing drain line and I like the battery status lights and audible warnings that the pump makes when... more

Gary,
We're glad you're happy with you new sump pump system. The most likely reason you're seeing that light change from green to yellow is because of the battery you're using. These system are designed for use with marine deep cycle batteries. An auto battery will only work for short period of time and most likely cause you system to fail when you need it most.

I would suggest checking out our selection of batteries designed for use with these sump pump systems... Sump Pump Batteries

Nice Setup, But Off To A Bad Start.
This is a hard-to-find combination of both a backup pump and a battery backup system -- two things no vital sump system should be without. Setup was easy enough, although some cords/wiring could stand to be of longer length.

What was a bit unnerving however was: as I tested the system by running water into the basin, I watched the main pump’s float rise up, slightly sideways, and work its way right out of the hole on the switch where the float pole connects, and fall off. So I have the... more

Very Satisfied
I purchased the Wayne combo pump unit after also considering the Basement Watchdog unit. I chose Wayne because there seemed to be fewer issues with the battery. The BW combo pump requires a proprietary battery that you must fill with acid. The Wayne combo pump uses a maintenance-free marine deep cycle battery. I'm extremely pleased with the Wayne pump. It was very easy to hook up and has functioned flawlessly. Just what I was looking for at a very good price.

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!!

Pleased so far with combo I purchased last year with different switch. Recently installed new combo with float switch in my second sump to replace Zoeller combo pumps. Selected this combo for under 15" footprint with backup pump low in sump, more powerful backup pump in event of primary pump failure, heavy duty check valve on both pumps, pre-assembled for easy install, and works with deep cycle gel battery.

Quiet And Powerful!
Did a ton of research on a combo sump pump system for my underground basement that handles a lot of water due to a french drainage system. Decided to go with the Wayne combo because of it's backup pump capacity being so powerful combined with the great price. After I hooked it all up an added bonus was how quiet this pump is. You can barely hear it pump when you're standing right above it! Plus 5 year warranty is great!

We love our new primary/backup sump pump. During a heavy downpour (over 5 inches of rain) we lost power. Unfortunately our 20+ year old sump pump did not have a battery backup.

Works Great - Short Power Cord Very Dissapointing
So far it has worked extremely well. Have not had any power outages so no experience with the backup pump yet.

The primary pump is extremely quiet.

Be aware that the alarm warning that the small pump has kicked on is relatively low volume and runs for a very short time. As far as I can tell there is no adjustment available for volume or duration.

I can't understand why a system that costs this much has such a short power cord. Even the piece of junk pump I replaced had an 8 foot... more

Well Built & Designed, Easy To Install Protection
After seeing how much damage and expense caused by a failed sump pump to the finished basement of my son's new home, I decided to install a battery backup sump pump system in our house. I researched many different brands and types available before finding this highly recommended unit on Sump Pump Direct. I ordered it the same day and received it less than 48 hrs. later with free standard shipping. I installed it myself in less than 2 hrs. with the recommended 75 amp. Interstate battery also... more

My New Wayne Sumppump
The best decision I made to keep my basement dry was to purchase a Wayne combination and battery back up sump pump system. It was extremely easy to install and wire the battery unit. I highly recommend this unit to anyone that is thinking of installing a battery back up system.

Just Like Bob
I have pretty much the same exact story as Bob's (5/21/15). I had a non-code set up pumping through a hose into our wastewater system (just found this out). Pump failed, flooded the finished basement. After $20K of mitigation went looking for an answer for this not to happen again and found it on this website. Great info, easy ordering, fast delivery.

Like others, I found the instructions skimpy for this model. They need just to add a few things specific to the Combo model (instead of... more

Wayne Wss30v = Peace Of Mind
Our house had a sump but no pump. I thought our house would never need a sump pump. My reasons: 1) We are not in a flood plain 2) We live at the top of hill we supposedly live in a semi- arid climate 3) It hardly ever rains here and when it does rain, it doesn't rain for very long. Boy, was I wrong! We recently got monsoon rain that lasted weeks. The ground got saturated and we got flooded with an inch of standing water.

After thoroughly mitigating the issue, I researched... more

Great Product So Far
After heavy rains, we needed help in our basement so we installed the Wayne combination pumps. The 1/2 HP primary pump works like a champ and is very quiet. No thumps in the check valves.

Tested the back-up and it works as advertised. It's also easy to install as the combo unit comes drop in ready. Bottom line.......I'd buy this combo again if I had the need.

I live in a very low area in, when we get 2-3 inches of rain in a day or two my sump pump will go off every 45 seconds. I purchased a generator for power outage and now i purchased this battery back up. It was very easy to install, probably about an hour total with installing eye bolts and small bungee cords to help support the heavy adapter.

We have had one rain storm so far of 3 inches and I feel much better now knowing all my bases are covered with the primary and battery back up sump... more

No Worries
After completion of a basement renovation, I needed some insurance against water backup from my sump pit in case of a power outage. I ordered and received the Wayne WSS30V and installed it. Installation was simple. Before sealing my sump pit I tested both the main and battery backup pumps.

To my surprise, the battery backup pump was able to not only keep up with, but reduce the water level in the sump pit from a wide open faucet/hose. This far exceeds a competitors pump I installed in... more

Pump has now been installed for 6 months now, went through a winter (melting snow) and our current crazy rain fall this spring. On top of that we also are over an underground river.

It replaced a 1/3 hp we had to buy 3.5 years ago when our original pump failed and basement was flooded, Pump is really needed, even in drought season, pump will run one or twice a day. The new pump is so quiet compared to any of the pumps we had before.

I received my pump and battery in a very short time. Installation was very simple. The unit tested fine. All the other reviews commenting on the quietness of the unit were quite correct. We do not even know when it is running. Luckily, I have so far not needed the backup pump in real time. I work night shift and I no longer worry about the pump during a storm.

I purchased this Wayne combo pump about one month ago. The pump arrived in a couple days then I bought a marine battery at SAMs club (about 80 bucks). So far the pump works great, it's so quiet I can barely hear it. This pump was a snap to install and I would highly recommend it to everyone looking for a battery backup pump.

Successful Install
I was concerned that the 12V 1/3 HP back up pump could not overcome the head pressure from the 10' high 2" discharge pipe. I had previous problems with a pump that could could not open a check valve. I am pleased to report the Wayne 12V pump worked fine. I have installed the complete system all is OK.

I did have to modify the pump discharge connections to fit my sump. I cut about 1 -1/2" off each pump discharge pipe to lower it to line up with the existing 2" DISCHARGE LINE.

Excellent Choice
I had a 1/4 horse 120 volt sump that was at least 15 years old. In July we experienced a two hour power outage during a thunderstorm. The sump pump comes on approximately every six to seven minutes during heavy rainfall. I don't have a generator so I was forced to bucket brigade during the outage to avoid basement flooding. It's not fun at 3:00 am in the morning filling and emptying five gallon pails…. I installed the combination Wayne WSS30V and haven't had anymore sleepless nights... more

We leveled the bottom of the pit with some bricks and dropped it right in. all the wires were there and can only be hooked up one way. Tested the floats on each pump.

Sump Pump Improvement
I replaced a 20-yr old sump pump (still working) with this combo model. Heavy rain this spring caused sump and drain tile backup, and I lost carpeting and drywall.

It was a bear to install, but only because the discharge pipe was routed out the side of the basket - so very little space was available as this pump was slightly higher than the old one. So with minimal clearance it is a little askew with the flexible connector barely getting enough room between the pump and discharge... more

Trading Up
I had a sump pump installed about 10 years ago after repeated water problems in my split foyer house. Since it was time to replace the pump, I decided to put in a pump with a backup system. I searched around and the Wayne combination looked like the best value. I was able to install it myself. Now, if the water table gets high again I have a new pump. If that one quits or can't handle the load, the backup pump kicks in. And if the power goes out the backup pump still works because of the... more

I tried to assemble my own parts to achieve redundancy, but after spending a lot of $$ on Inverters and Power Control device to switch singular pump to Battery Backup in Power Outage, I discovered that my aged Singular Pump sometimes failed to switch on (float failure).

Easy to install. Haven't had any water in sump pit since installing so it's doing a great job. :) Seems like quality made product.

New Pump / Backup

Pump Is Ok Best So Far
This pump is the best I found so far. Problem is (like all pumps) it starts hard causing a swoosh and shuts off hard causing a pop. Our application is such that the pump only rests between 15 to 45 seconds between 10 second pump run intervals due to high water table. At 25 seconds I find it most irritating, with the swoosh and the pop while trying to sleep.

Next I will try a 3 phase motor with variable frequency drive and closed loop level control to attempt much desired smoother operation.... more

Don,
Please keep in mind the sound that you're hearing most is not the pump. It's the sound of water flowing through the pipe. Water moving in this type of applications can't be silent. If it's not already, you may want to enclose the area around you sump pit, like a closet. Some people even soundproof the interior or around the discharge line and check valve.

My House Was Ruined From Sandy 10/29/12
I have been rebuilding my crawl space and my first floor since last year. My crawl is now waterproofed and now I just installed two pumps with back up batteries. I am prepared as much as anyone could be for another disaster. I really hope I never have to use them. If there is even a small flood my house will remain dry. The delivery was very fast and the price was at least $50-75.00 less than the local stores. I would recommend this site to all the homeowners and contractors in the US.
Pros: Price, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Easy Install, Might Need A Bit Of Adapting
Pretty much just lift out the old, lift in the new. All set up and much easier than installing separate main and backup pumps. But for me, there was an inexpensive glue-in adapter I had to get at a plumbing supply store to go from the 1 1/2" output to the existing 1 1/'4'' PVC output pipe, along with cutting that existing PVC pipe back a few inches as the Wayne sits higher. The battery costs $100 locally. The unit itself works well, and much quieter than the old unit.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Price, Easy to install.
Cons: Bad Instructions

Ronald,
I'm sorry to hear of the issues that you experienced with your installation, Ronald. Typically, most combination systems are designed for an easy swap out. Unfortunately, not ALL cases are the same, which may result in more time and/or modifications in the installation. I'm happy to hear that the system is performing well for you and the sound level is within your liking. If you should have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,
Jim Owiecki
