Wayne Cast Iron Lawn Sprinkler Pump - 5560 GPH, 2 HP, 2in., Model# WLS200
Does what it is supposed to, quietly
This pump was replacing one that was 1 1/2, the 2hp definetly made a difference. It's quiet, easy to install, and runs all my sprinklers with ease. I was able to hook up two zones, so now instead of three zones , I have two, and can run it less time, by a third.
My only complaint is the mounting screw holes are close to the curvature of the pump housing, so you have to have anchors that require a nut on top to keep it in place.

Hard Working Pump
Just bought my second of these pumps. Use to water pasture, drawing water from river. Has to pump a long way and draw water uphill and run nearly non-stop in the summer.

The Pump That Just Keeps Going
I purchested my first pump over 5 yrs ago , & it exceted its rated head destance by a bunch. Im pushing water over 500' to my farthest head & there is 12 heads in a zone. I have 6 zones 2 of which are closest to the pump have 18 heads & they all shoot 52 'each. The hard water finaly did it in so I purched another just like it & its doing the same great job . Thanks WANE PUMP

Great Irrigation Pump
I have two of these units feeding a dual irrigation system. They are excellent and have provided several years of great service. I bought this new one to replace one that become damaged. Only problem was, after all these years, Wayne changed the mounting footprint which required replacing and relocating the mounting studs on the concrete pedestal. Really feel this shouldn't have been done.

This is my 2nd Wayne pump. It replaces a Wayne pump I had over 15 years with no problems. This one pumps more water with it's 2hp motor than the one it replaces which I am very happy about as it speeds my irrigation.

Product field testing
This product states that you will have years of service which I have found to be false unless 2 years of watering a 1/4 acre yard is considered "years of service". You may say well maybe the pump was not taken care of properly and that would not hold true! The pump itself failed not the electric motor portion of the unit. The pump has never had debris in it it has had fine filters since day one and only runs about 12 hours per week for 3 months out of the year. Not a good bang for the buck! I would suggest you keep shopping.

Great for lawn sprinklers
I was nervous buying this pump because of the length of water line i had to run and the elevation that i had to pump the water. i live on 3 acers of land thus i have lots of lawn to water. i have a 600 foot run of 2" PVC pipe that comes from the pump which is about 25 foot from the highest point of the lawn. this pump puts out enough pressure that i can have 5-7 typical sprinklers putting water to the lawn at one time. that exceeded my expectation.
i used the 2" pipe to reduce the amount of pressure loss in the transfer of water. my watering system just brings water to spots in the yard where i can hook up your typical hose. i have 8 spots in the 2" pipe throughout where i can tap into the water supply. i would say at any given time i have 400 -500 foot of typical hose extending the water supply to any part of the yard.
there is an initial 18 foot that the pump forces the water up from the lake. not sure if that helps anyone. the other 7 foot is slope of the land.

great lawn pump
I now own three of these pumps. I have a sprinkler system and can run six heads (4gph) and pumps does just fine. I am off grid so it is important to be able to run 230 volt.

This pump is easy set up, works great and is very powerful. I use it to pump watter from the bottom of a lake at 25 feet depth and water my lawn. It allows me to water my entire lawn, over 1/2 acre all at one time.
I recommend this pump to anyone who needs a powerful pump for any reason.

I own two of these and love them both. Years of great service from Wayne pumps. These should be covered though. Don't use them in the open or you'll wreck it. Then again, all sprinkler pumps should be covered.
