Operating Instructions and Parts Manual Submersible Series
350705-001 7/05
A backup system
should be used.
Wayne offers Model ESP15.
Place the float bracket onto the handle of
the motor housing and slide the switch
assembly securely into place.
1. Install pump in a sump pit with minimum
size as shown in Figure 2. Construct
sump pit of tile, concrete, steel or plastic.
2. The unit should be located and rest on a
solid, level foundation. Do not place
pump directly on clay, earth, gravel or
sandy surface. These surfaces contain
small stones, gravel, sand, etc. that may
clog or damage the pump and cause
pump failure.
Flood risk. If
flexible discharge
hose is used, make sure pump is
secured in sump pit to prevent
movement. Failure to secure pump
could allow pump movement and
switch interference and prevent pump
from starting or stopping.
3. Thread check valve (Wayne offers Model
66005-WYN) into pump body carefully
to avoid stripping or cross threading. Do
not use pipe joint sealant.
4. Connect 1-1/2” rigid pipe to rubber boot
on check valve. Reverse boot for 1-1/4”
diameter pipe. Tighten hose clamps.
Support pump and
piping when
assembling and after installation.
Failure to do so could cause piping to
break, pump to fail, etc. which could
result in property damage and/or
personal injury.
5. Protect electrical cord from sharp object,
hot surfaces, oil and chemicals. Avoid
kinking the cord and replace damaged
cords immediately.
IMPORTANT: Make sure there is adequate
room for the switch to operate.
6. A sump pit cover must be installed to
prevent debris from clogging or
damaging the pump.
Always disconnect the
power source before
attempting to install,
service, relocate or maintain the pump.
Never touch sump pump, pump motor,
water or discharge piping when pump is
connected to electrical power. Never
handle a pump or pump motor with wet
hands or when standing on wet or damp
surface or in water. Fatal electrical
shock could occur.
1. A ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI)
is required.
