Recent reviews of WAYNE SWS50 1/2 HP Cast Iron Shallow Well Jet Pump:

This was a substitute for a 1/2 hp Flotech cistern pump that gave me nothing but grief. It’s quieter and much stronger than the FloTech (which only gave me 5 years). I think it’s a great, well-made pump for the price. My Flotech took more than two minutes to recharge the pressure tank – this one does it in less than 40 seconds. The pressure switch is 30/50 but you may be able to increase/descrease it about 5 PSI either direction. The two outflow ports are a nice touch – I replaced the priming plug with a valve to make it easier to prime.



The pump arrived quickly and well packaged, I received notice it was about to be delivered so I was prepared for the installation. The pump installed inside an hour and was pumping beautifully after about 7 minutes of priming (lots of empty outside pipe to fill). I love the pump. It seems solidly built and it sounds great running. BTW, it replaced a Wayne 1/2 horse pump that had run for the last 30 years 🙂 The old pump’s motor was still humming smoothly, however I think it had lost its prime and ran dry. I blame an old check value for the failure, and after losing its prime the rollers were just too worn to prime the pump again.



I have a shallow well for my livestock where the water level is 8 1/2 ft below ground. I placed the pump in a pit 4 ft below ground level to protect against freezing. I primed the pump and it quickly pumped the water. The water blasts out of the frost free hydrant. I had researched pumps and compared gallons per minute. While I remember finding another 1/2 hp pump that had a higher gpm flow, this Wayne pump is more than enough for my needs. The instruction manual (which also may be found online) is 12 pages. The pump didn’t come with an electrical plug so I had to wire one on the pump. The instruction manual gives suggestions on how to hook up the wire, and the wire size which depends on 115/230 volts and the distance from the pump to the meter. The reason I knocked one star off my ranking: the pressure switch. I believe the pressure switch on/off is shipped at 30/50 lbs. It may be adjusted up to 5 lbs with 2 screws. Not too intuitive; I had to consult the instruction manual. I did not find anything on adjusting the pressure switch. I had to attempt different screw settings. I have a pressure tank and I had hoped to change the on setting down by 5 lbs and the off setting up by 5 lbs to increase the range and decrease the times the pump could cycle on and off. Does not seem possible. It is been some months since I set the pump up but I believe the range stayed the same, the on/off is adjusted up to 5 lbs in lockstep. My suggestion to the maker is to add information on adjusting the pressure switch. Otherwise the setup was pretty fast and easy.
