Wayne Cast Iron Lawn Sprinkler Pump - 4790 GPH, 1 1/2 HP, 2in., Model# WLS150
rapid pump failure
dThe duration of operation before failure seemed excessively short. At less than or 18 months, the pump, though still functioning, began to fail due to loadup on the shaft. Had to be replaced and did not live up to expectations.

Motor is dead
The electric motor is dead after one season. I had pump covered with a small shed to keep the rain off during the watering season. For the winter I stored it in an enclosed building in Virginia. The pump worked very well for three months.

This pumps works great, I'm pumping three large impacts heads at over 400 feet. Incline is about 20 feet. Very nice that its 120v, If i could i would of gone with the 2hp, but that's 240. Easy to prime, clean and drain in the fall/winter. Do warn anyone that if it will be getting close to freezin to drain. Cast iron does not hold up well with ice water.

I bought this pump to pull water from a lake to feed lawn irrigation system. It's amazing...can supply 12 Orbit heads at once without a pressure drop. It allows for full lawn watering all at once; 1 big zone and no controller, just use a timer. Self primes, pulling water up 12 feet. Also put a 1.5 inch fire hose fitting and ball valve on the discharge prior to the 1 inch irrigation lines. Living in a rural area with a volunteer fire department, it's nice to have a high volume hose for peace of mind. Would highly recommend this pump.

I've been using this pump for about 15yrs drawing water from a shallow well to water a large garden & small orchard. I live on the Texas gulf coast, we have hot dry summers, this pump has always perform in an excellent manner. I feel certain that my old pump won't last very much longer, but when it goes it will be replace with a Model# WLS150.

This pump works great it drains my 7 person spa in about 10 min's where it used to take about 6 hours to drain and I also use it to drain the pool. I have bolted it to a shop cart. and now all I have to do is wheel it out and plug it in. I makes my life a lot easer. "THANK'S" Northern and Wayne.
