What experts liked
The lightweight and therefore highly portable Wayne 57729 is a decent solution for expelling excess water from your basement or crawlspace, but it’s also suitable for use in a window well, on your boat or anywhere else that’s unusually saturated.
- Wiki EZ Vid
The power offered by this incredible sump pump is up to ¼ HP. As a great result, it can effectively pump the drain. Adding to that, this product is submersible as well; therefore, you use nothing more to worry about.
- Paramatan
Small enough to fit inside storm drains and confined spaces that sump pumps don’t squeeze inside.
- Sump Pump Guides
The unit can be left unattended to drain water from flooded basements, window wells, boats, stock tanks, flat roofs, low spots in driveways.
- Sump Pump Reviews
What experts didn't like
Sensor can be a bit finicky.
- Wiki EZ Vid
Removal required in winter when temperatures start to drop; risk of damage to the unit if the homeowner forgets about this pump.
