Review on Wayne WSM3300


Model specifications


1.1 WAYNE WSM3300The Wayne WSM3300 is possibly the best battery backup sump pump for the money, particularly if you have been looking for a reasonably affordable and powerful model. This unit has it all. For one, it can pump up to 3,000 gallons per hour, so you do not need to worry about water capacity when your primary pump has stopped working due to a power shortage or because of a malfunction. The flow drops when the discharge lift is ten feet, as the unit is capable of discharging just 2,300 gallons per hour. Even so, the Wayne WSM3300 does an excellent job of protecting one’s basement during a power outage for as many as 92 hours.

The Wayne WSM3300 has a particular kind of microprocessor which makes it possible for the pump to perform a self-test every two weeks. The same processor has the role of checking on the status of the battery.

In terms of versatility, this Wayne model is a net winner, as it is durable and thus long-lasting, being made of thermoplastic and allowing users to get help and fix their primary pump while the backup is doing what it is supposed to do. In addition, the system can call up to five numbers once it has been connected to a standard telephone line. The fact of the matter is that this feature comes in handy when the main pump has stopped working and the homeowner is away at work or doing some sort of errands.

In order for the unit to work properly, the Wayne WSM3300 requires a deep cycle, wet cell or maintenance free 12-V battery. As is the case with other products we have gone through during our research, this one does not come with the battery provided in the package.

Main advantages of using the model


This unit is among the most advanced ones we’ve stumbled upon, as it allows owners to rest assured that, in the event that anything goes wrong, they will be notified that the primary pump is malfunctioning. As previously mentioned, the Wayne WSM3300 has to be connected to a standard telephone line so that it dials up to five numbers in case of an emergency.

What’s more, the Wayne model can be installed and utilized remarkably easily, as it comes with a built-in LCD display that is practically self-explanatory. Both the screen and the panel buttons are easy to use and pose no problems for people who aren’t necessarily tech aficionados.

Considering that this model can keep a basement dry for as long as 92 hours, it seems to be the best option for people who tend to travel a lot or for individuals who rent properties and have no intention of performing expensive repairs.

Owner feedback


Although the vast majority of the user reviews we’ve analyzed speak highly of the value offered for the price of this unit, some buyers have complained about the shortness of the cords from the battery to the pump. Since the rule of thumb is to avoid using extension cords, this issue might require an imaginative solution on the part of the owner.
