The body is made of thermoplastic and can clear water down to 3/8″ in your pit. It is activated by an internal float switch and is a good choice for homeowners that want a low maintenance pump that needs little ongoing care.

Motor
The Wayne EEAUP250 utility pumpo is powered by a 1/4 HP pump which is average for basement sump pumps. We like this motor for basements that receive an average to above average  amount of sump water. Anything more and you may need to upgrade to a more powerful unit for more water flow.

The insides are protected by a tough, watertight thermoplastic shell and the motor can be activated automatically so you can set it not worry about it until it is time for monthly maintenance.

Float Switch
This Wayne sump pump is activated and controlled with iSwitch technology. This high tech water detection system automatically activates the motor as your basin starts to fill, then turns it off again when the water has drained. A sump pump is only as good as the float and this is one of the most reliable on the market.

WSS30V Advantages

The EEAUP250 is a good choice for home owners that are shopping for a set and forget sump pump. This unit is highly dependable and has a high flow rate so it can handle heavy water flow during big seasonal storms. Another good thing about this pump is that it is small and light enough to move around your property to gardens, window wells, driveways and other areas that are prone to flooding

Wayne EEAUP250 vs WaterBug

The EEAUP250 and WaterBug are both high quality pumps but there are a few key differences. The Wayne pump has a 1/4 HP pump while the WaterBug only has a 1/6 HP pump. The bigger motor means the EEAUP has almost a 3x higher flow rate than the WaterBug which lets it remove water quicker. Another advantage is that the Wayne pump is automatic while the WaterBug requires supervision.

Owner Feedback

Our team did some research to see what consumers think about this pump. Reviews across the web are very good and most people keep their pump for at least 5 years. Whenever we found reports of ‘lemons’ but the Wayne Customer Service team was always ready to help.

Why Should Your Purchase the EEAUP250

Still unsure if this is the right pump for your home? We like to remind home owners that one of the most common, and expensive, repairs is basement flooding. It is worth it to spend a little extra on your sump to prevent future problems and this pump is a great choice. The only problem we have found is that it does not have extra features like a backup pump or alarm. 

Our Final Say

This Wayne pump is powerful and reliable. The 1/4 HP motor is enough juice to keep your pit dry without burning out the motor. Our Wayne EEAUP250 review found many good features that make this submersible pump one of the top picks on the market.​
