"After about two weeks of running (approximately 50 pump cycles) the pump failed.and burned out the small electrical wires at the pressure switch. I rewired the factory supplied 16 ga with heavier wire and lubricated the stuck start/run switch. Been ok since. It does pump up the advertised pressure quickly, and seems to function as advertised except for the aforementioned."

Solid Pump

"The pump has been a solid performer and even primes itself from a depth I never thought it would. Unfortunately I have had trouble with the pressure switch from the start. Either it will not trip and turn on or it will not turn off. As an irrigation pump this hasn't been a big issue, a tap or two sets it right. Someday I will have to fix it. It wasn't worth taking it out of the system to send it back."

Good Pump

"I replaced my aging 1hp pump with the SWS100. It worked great right out of the box. If all you need is 50psi, you can't go wrong here. The price is the lowest I've encountered for a 1hp. The SWS100 has been working daily for several months now with absolutely no problems. It does appear that it isn't designed for full exposure to the elements, so some measure of protection should be provided. Mine is protected by its proximity to the house and the overhanging roof."

"i purchased two 1 horse pumps, one for me and one for a friend, the one that i had before was also a Wayne, it lasted almost 15 years, I get my water from a creek, and that pump was put through some of the harshest conditions conditions that would have fried any other pump brand, so when it was time to replace it, of course i went with Wayne, oh and by the way, the 15 year old pump, never really died all the way ,it was still going, when i put in the new one, i did and would recommend this pump to anybody"

Wayne Heavy-Duty Shallow Well Jet Pump

,
July 13, 2009
By TheHawk
from Herkimer County, NY
"I purchased a 1/2 HP Wayne Heavy-Duty Jet pump about ten years ago for my country home. It developed a leak, and I decided to fix it, but my wife insisted that I buy a new one in order to avoid down time. Since I got more than my moneys worth out of that pump I opted for the 1HP Model. Was I glad that Northern still carried the Wayne Pump! If they didn't I would have had to surf the Net until I found another one. It pumped water from an old stone well that was located 25 yards from my house through a 3/4 inch plastic pipe that was sunk 4 feet underground below the frost line. It pressurized a 40 gallon containment tank which delivered the water to the house and filled a 40 gallon hot water electric tank. I wish that I had purchased the 1HP unit ten years ago, since it filled my tanks a lot quicker and only took only prime to do it. The only other problem that I had with the old pump was a rusted on fill bolt. Just a tip, but remember to remove your prime fill bolt at the end of the year, if you close your house down like I do, or you will be installing a T Fitting, a stopper and a hose clamp in order to prime your pump, just like I did."
