  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

Pump Failed
I am an irrigation contractor and have installed several hundred pumps. I decided to replace my own effluent pump. I ordered here and received the pump quickly and it seemed well packaged. I went through the process of having the tank pumped out and removing the original 12 year old pump that had failed. I then plumbed and installed this new pump only to find out that it was locked up and makes a straining noise for about 20 seconds and then goes into thermal protect. I called and asked... more

Jim, the Sump Pump Expert
Product Expert
Daniel,
I'm sorry to hear of the issues you experienced with your pump and with our customer service team. Our policy for issues like this are that the customer needs to call the manufacturer for troubleshooting assistance. This is simply to insure that the installation was done properly and perhaps something was overlooked that may resolve the issue immediately. Once the pump is deemed defective by the manufacturer, Wayne normally handles all aspects of the warranty after 30 days of the sale. Obviously, in this case(before 30 days of sale), we would have handled the return and replacement or refund. IF you are willing to have the pump cleaned off, packed and returned (at our expense), I would be happy to have a call tag and refund issued to you.
Please let me know how you would like to proceed.
Thank you!

Sincerely,
Jim Owiecki

Too Soon To Know For Sure, But...
I purchased this RPP50 pump to replace the same identical pump which failed after almost exactly 2 years (being used as a septic effluent pump). The pump previous to that was an Ace Hardware Model 44855 (more expensive), also built by Wayne, which lasted 5 years. Prior to that were a couple of heavy and expensive Zoeller units, which lasted a few years each.

Bottom line: no pump is going to last forever in this environment. Since this pump is easy to change out and inexpensive, I will... more

Happy With The Wayne Rpp50
This replaced a Little Giant 9SN-CIA-RF. Even though the Wayne pump is rated at less flow it seems like it empties the sump faster. The Wayne pump is significantly quieter. The Little Giant pump was in service for 12 years and failed because of being run dry due to a faulty switch. I wonder about the longevity of the Wayne RPP50 but for now it's running great and was easy to install.
Pros: Price, Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use

Plenty Of Power For The Money
I had a much larger unit 2HP which I replaced with this one. The Smaller Pump has plenty of power to do the job and No regrets replacing with smaller unit. It performs well and quite satisfied with the pump.
