Q: I think I need an anti-siphon valve for this pump, which I received from you a couple of weeks ago. It works very well, but recently has started short-cycling (I think) because the water in the discharge hose is flowing back into the reservoir and causing the pump to start up again for a moment. Do you recommend such a valve that can be used with the 3/4" hose adapter?
by Michael W from Virginia on November 12, 2015

A: If this is a problem, you do definitely want to install a check valve near the discharge port of the pump. While we do not offer any in a 3/4", these can be found at your local hardware or big box store.

Q: Would this Wayne EEAUP250 pump be an appropriate and feasible long-term solution to a window well that fills with heavy rains and leaks into an unfinished basement? It is under a deck with very little clearance so exterior window access is very difficult and I'd like to leave it in place year-round. This is in Kansas so winters are frequently freezing and summers are regularly in the 90's. Also, the house has no exterior drainage or sump pump in place but I'm trying to minimize costs if possible. Thanks!
by Brant R from Kansas on April 27, 2014

A: Thank you for your interest in Water Pumps Direct. The Wayne EEAUP250 should perform well for your application, however I would recommend that you place a grate or some type of filter over this window well in order to prevent debris from getting into that area and possibly clogging the pump intake. I would also highly recommend that you utilize the full 1-1/4" discharge port with the same diameter discharge hose and keep an eye on it when temperatures dip to freezing or below.
by Jim, Product Expert
Q: I want to set a portable pump in a low spot on a concrete driveway that will pump water out to the street. I would like it to pump to about 1/2 inch. The water seldom gets above 5 inches. But I would like to leave it unattended overnight. Is there a pump that will turn itself off and on as the water rises or lowers?
by Walter K from California on June 18, 2013

A: The only pump that I could suggest would be the Wayne EEAUP250 automatic utility pump. This pump will activate at approximately 1-3/4" of water and shut off at approximately 3/8".

Submersible utility pumps have been around for a while. Every once in a while, a manufacturer surprises us with some new cool technology.

This pump is the most technologically advanced of it's kind with it's iSwitch Water Sensing Technology. Most other pumps will just run continuous, or run in time intervals causing unnecessary wear and tear on the pump. This pump will only turn on when it senses water that needs to be pumped out. What a concept!

This pump also features an oil free... more

Love The Automatic On/off!
These are super easy to install. Since they have the automatic on/off switch. I don't have to be home to activate them in case of flooded window wells. Very fast shipping, excellent overall transaction.

Cannot Hard Wire This Pump
Bought thinking it could be hard wired as with any pump/switch. After receiving and beginning install it was found to have a 3-wire auto switch. Confused I called Wayne pumps and inquired how to proceed with hard wire at which time I was told this pump cannot be hard wired.

I started to question that response and got another swift and gruff "it cannot be hard wired and your warranty is void." Absolutely nothing included makes this statement so save your money if you were looking to... more
Jim, the Water Pump Expert
Product Expert
Rex,
I'm sorry to hear of the issues you experienced with the Wayne EEAUP250 pump. Unfortunately, not all pumps are designed for hard wire applications and as much as we try to provide as much information about the product we offer, we simply cannot foresee and provide all of the answers.

For this reason, we do provide contact information on our site where you can call or email us with any questions you might have prior to making your purchase. In addition, in most cases where the customer decides to hard wire the pump, this could very possibly void the warranty. I wish I had a better reply for you but I will double check with Wayne regarding your claim on their attitude and get back to you.

Works Well For Me
I have a very shallow sump well and needed a pump that would turn on with a very low water level, which ruled out most float switches. This was the pump recommended by Sump Pumps Direct. The pump is relatively heavy and appears well built. Noise level is low to moderate. My only complaint is that the hose adapter wouldn't snug up in the proper orientation - liberal use of Teflon tape took care of it.

Pump For Leaking Basement Windowsill
I have 2 basement window sills which fill with water once the ground becomes saturated with rain. The water then flows into the basement via the windows. I purchased 2 WAYNE EEAUP250 - 50 GPM submersible pumps and they have consistently pumped the rainwater out of the windowsills and prevented any leakage into the basement.

Wayne Eeaup250 - 50 Gpm Oil-free Submersible Automatic Utility P
So I bought this "Wayne EEAUP250 - 50 GPM Oil-Free Submersible Automatic Utility Pump" about a year ago. I don't use it much , but I do. Part of my backyard slops down then up, leaving me a lake of water when we have a heavy rain. I connected about a 75 foot hose to the pump and let the pump, pump out all this water that gathers up.

This pump works great, It runs for about 3-4 hours depending on the rain, this pump is exactly what I needed. I hate giving review as soon as... more

Problem Solved
I have a garage apartment that's built on a concrete slab. Flooding has been problem. I used to suck it up with a steam vac, but that's not very smart.

I went shopping for a sump pump but most don't have an automatic, water level activated on and off switch.

When I read "Why Jim likes it" on this website I knew I'd found my pump. This was the only sump pump under a few hundred dollars that's automatic.

I've had the pump for a few weeks and when it rains the pump is... more

Great Pump -- Great Price
This pump is just the ticket. I am pumping storm water away from a low spot against my foundation until I can get it routed under the driveway and I had another, cheaper utility pump (I liked it, too) but that one didn't have the automatic switch, so I ran it on a timer, and eventually wore it out.This one only runs when water is present, which is a huge improvement.

I bought a cheap check valve which I spliced into the garden hose I am using for discharge. The only thing about it that is... more

Flat Roof Ponding Control
Being used for temporary / Emergency drainage discharge to cope with excess ponding on flat roof .It is quiet and does the job switching itself on and off appropriately in response to water level. Best for small to medium ponding areas if job must be done fast.

Basement Flood
I searched for an automatic pump that would turn on and start pumping water when my basement begins to flood. After much searching, I decided on this one. I have had a couple floods. The bad thing about this unit is that it doesn't turn on until the water is 1 3/4" high. By that time, half of my basement is flooded. It might help avoid a catastrophe, but I should have been able to find a unit that started pumping at a lower level.

Great Pump!
I had an area of poor drainage in my yard that needed draining after a rain. I dug a small hole (About a foot or so deep) in the lowest part of the puddle, I took a plastic bucket, drilled holes in it, placed the pump in the bucket, placed the bucket and pump in the hole, and filled the area around the bucket with drainage rocks and capped the bucket with a 12 X12 paver. I connected a 75' garden hose to the pump, buried the hose and ran it away from the low area.

When it rains, the... more
