  1. M. Kessler

    Worth Every Cent. It works!We had purchased two other pumps lower priced different manufacturers that did not provide enough lift and power to pull water from our pond to our sprinklers. This pump was a dream easy to set up and from the moment we turned it on we have had more power than we ever imagined. Highly recommend

    does the jobI bought this to increase the water pressure to get water up to two roof waters to prevent wildfire damage. I have a two story house. I originally bought a 1/2 hp pump but it wasnt strong enough. This was easy to use. I am satisfied with this purchase.

    It works wellI was using a 1 1/2 HP gas pump to irrigate our gardens until a neighbor started complaining about the noise. So I bought this electric pump to replace it. I am pulling water from a pond with a lift of about 30′ and a distance of about 250′. For a single sprinkler this pump works well and is quiet. The only thing to note is that unlike my gas pump, where I only had to put water in the pump housing in order for it to create suction to pull water from the foot valve, with this pump I had to fill the 1″ pvc pipe with the foot valve on the end completely with water in order to get the water flowing the first time. Filling the “prime port” on the pump wasn’t enough for me.

    Legit review of a really good sprinkler pumpUPDATE 6/8/20: Still a 5 Star rating after 11 months! I’m now using it mostly to draw well water rather than lake water for irrigation. I dropped 22’ of 3/4” pvc into a 24’ deep well, have the pump positioned next to the well, and I’m getting 70 lbs of pressure at the outflow connection, and 75 lbs at the end of 50’ of hose. Not fire hose strength, but plenty to run a variety of sprinklers AND keep my irrigation water bill at $0! Still very happy after almost a year.Original review:Got the Wayne PLS100 to pump lake water to irrigate our Bermuda and zoysia grasses. Researched way too much, and thankfully decided on the Wayne over several cheaper off-brand models. Not saying the cheaper ones are bad, but the Wayne is freakin awesome! Used a 1” brass foot valve (TC2503LF) on the intake hose (6’ length of 1” reinforced clear hose from Home Depot) and I was off to the races. Primed the pump per the manual, plugged it in, flipped the switch and after about 25 seconds the oscillating sprinkler at the end of the hose was throwing a 50’ wide shower of lake water 75’ away, 10’ above the intake. And the spray spread was almost what the house bib produced. I then turned it off, added another 75’ hose, and ran it to the front yard. Turned it back on and almost immediately it was throwing about the same amount of spray as the back yard, but at 22’ above and 150’ from the intake. And did I mention it’s relatively quiet? Outside it is. Now if it was located close to a living area, you’d be wise to fashion an insulated, ventilated box for it. Am I impressed? Yup.So I decided to push my luck, and I put a splitter at the 75’ point and added a 25’ hose to each with the same oscillating sprinklers at each end. At that point, you could see some degradation of water force, but still adequate for watering. To my eye, there was about 20% less pressure. I moved the splitter, hoses and sprinklers to the front yard (150’ from pump to splitter with a 22’ rise above the lake). Again, you could see less spray from the sprinklers. With both sprinklers in-line, the total coverage was approx 50’x25’. While not as good as when they were on a single 75’ hose, the 1200 sq ft coverage is adequate. Update: I swapped out the 1” intake hose for a 30’, 3/4” hose to get the pump closer to the power source. There’s no discernible loss of water pressure at the 150’ point, and I know this because I borrowed a psi gauge to check. It’s 78 psi straight from the pump’s outlet, 76 psi at the 75’ point, and 63 psi at 150’ (22’ above intake).All in all, the Wayne PLS100 is a VERY impressive irrigation pump that (assuming I get years of use) ought to pay for itself by significantly lowering my water bills during the summer watering months in SC! Well worth the money.

    Strong suctionIt worth the money

    Works wellusing this pump to water the garden and lawn, we are on a well and this increases the pressure.

  8. Bill

    It does the job!I’ve owned this pump since June of 2016 and so far it’s operated flawlessly, in fact I’m going to buy another. I use it for watering my gardens and topping off my pool from my pond.

    Reliable, it does the jobThis was not the first pump I bought, I needed to increase the city water pressure so that I could use more than one sprinkler at a time to water my large backyard. I did not need a pump to drain anything or to bring water up from a well of creek. I just wanted to increase the pressure directly from the outdoor spigot. When I saw the prices of these things I first opted for a plastic one which had good reviews and cost around $50. After all this was not an emergency and there are plenty of other things to spend one’s money on then a booster pump. Well, the first one was difficult to install, and the instructions suggested an electrician which the description on Amazon did not mention. I returned it and bought a Fluent Power for around $100. It was highly rated, perhaps the highest in its price range. It worked fine for one day and then killed my water pressure altogether. I returned it and decided to bite the bullet and by the Wayne pump based on research, videos. I have had it only for a week and cannot speak to durability but I can say this. It increased my water pressure dramatically so that I can no run 2 impact sprinklers at the same time and get good coverage. It is quiet. Much quieter than the Fluent Power. It was extremely easy to set up. Directions were clear and accurate. Priming was a breeze, just add water and away you go. While it is not exactly light, it is not so heavy that you cannot move it around. I have used it every day without a hitch. And it does not leak at the inlet and outlet opening which the Fluent Power did.I gave it four stars instead of five because I think a longer power cord would be useful, but to be honest, its power cord is as longer or longer than most of these pumps. And the other reason was the price $235. I realize there are pumps out there that cost 3 times as much. Bob Villa recommends such pumps. But still for me $235 seemed high. But so far, probably worth it. If at the end of the summer, its is now July, it is still going like it is now, I will raise it to five stars.

    Excellent portable 1HP water pump.This is an excellent 1Hp pump that works very well, my third one. The first one I had for three years until I ran it a couple months ago when we had a heat dome of 100 degrees over our area. Normal operating temperature of the pump is hot enough to burn my hand when it has been running for 20 minutes and got up to full temperature. It has a built-in fan that keeps it cool enough to operate when the outdoor ambient temperature is high, but at 100 degrees the thermal trip kept popping and I should have turned it off, but did not. It was my fault. I bought an identical replacement because I liked it so much but within a few days the replacement sprang a leak that got worse as I watched till it got the motor wet and quit. The motor was OK when I tried it later so I returned it for a full refund, I now have two of these pumps working very well for me.
