Wayne CDU1000 Submersible Sump Pump Review

A submergible or submersible pump, referred to commonly by its most familiar name of a sump pump, is basically a pump that is used in the removal of water build up or build up other liquids in a water collecting sump pit or basin. Sump pits or sump basins are most commonly found in the basement of homes or offices housed in tall buildings. But that does not limit the use of sump pumps to home basements of offices. They may equally be employed for use in gardens, yards or schools and pretty much anywhere and everywhere else there is a build up of water that needs to be removed.

When used in home basements, sump pumps are most often used when flooding takes place in the basement of a home on a regular basis, perhaps during heavy rainfall when water gets in the basement through drains in the perimeter of a basement waterproofing system; during winter when the snows have melted thereby increasing the level of ground water; or simply in cases where the level of the water table is high above the level of the basement which makes it extremely easy for water to simply flow in a downwards motion and penetrate the basement of the house. In cases where the ground is water logged, and the foundation of a home is below the water table, a sump pump may also come in handy. Sump pumps moves water away from places where it is not wanted into places where it is more easily managed, and where it no longer poses a problem.

With the increasing need for a sump pump, especially as global warming keeps melting the polar ice caps, making sea levels rise, and generally increasing the quantity of ground water; flooding is fast becoming a legitimate concern; and home owners should do their best to ensure that they do not suffer loss of properties and life in flooding incidents by investing in sump pumps that can serve them for a long time.

One of the best among such sump pumps is the Wayne CDU1000 Submersible Sump Pump.


The Wayne CDU1000 Submersible Sump Pump is manufactured by a company with decades of experience in the manufacture of pumps of every size, weight and functionality. With years and loads of research, design and manufacture under their cap, the WaynePump Company is in the best position and best equipped to manufacture a very functional and long lasting sump pump. Since sump pumps are not the only pumps that this American company produces, they have had the time and the opportunity to improve and then further improve on their products to afford buyers and users the best that there is to obtain while fishing to buy sump pumps and other kinds of pumps. This is the first thing that the Wayne CDU1000 Submersible Sump Pump has going for it.


Unlike most other sump pumps that are constructed from a single material: plastic in some cases, and cast iron in other cases; the Wayne CDU1000 Submersible Sump Pump is made from a very strong alloy of iron and carbon to give impeccable stainless steel, and cast iron. The body of the sump pump is constructed with stainless steel while the submersible part of the base is constructed with heavy duty, high grade, sturdy, cast iron. The stainless steel of the body renders the sump pump lightweight in spite of all its constituent moving parts, and the cast iron base offers a solid and staunch support for the stainless steel body. Stainless steel is impermeable to rust and corrosion, caused by oxidation of iron. In this light, regardless of how many years the Wayne CDU1000 Submersible Sump Pump is used for, it is guaranteed to remain as new, shiny and dazzling as it was when it was first purchased. The moving parts of this sump pump are also made of stainless steel which has high heat retaining and dispersal abilities. The heat energy generated by the motor of this sump pump is equally distributed into all the moving parts. This creates a uniform heat environment in the sump pump and prevents some parts from overheating while some remain cool, which may eventually result in failure of the sump pump.


This sump pump is fully submersible and can be submerged in water to any extent without fear of water damage to any parts of the sump pump. This is especially advantageous in cases where the sump pit is shallow, or in the other extreme where the sump pit is really deep. Shallow or deep, this sump pump is up to the task of getting rid of all that water.


Most sump pumps are hermetically sealed to make them airtight and prevent the passage of air, or subsequently water, or any other extraneous and unneeded materials from finding their ways into the sump pump. While this process of hermetic sealing protects the internal workings of sump pumps from stress and internal injury, so to speak, it poses a problem in that the sump pump may not be opened at a moment’s notice, since sealing it back hermetically would present a near insurmountable issue. This makes it difficult to conduct routine checks and maintenance services on sump pumps. The Wayne CDU1000 Submersible Sump Pump has attempted to side step this problem by waiving the hermetic sealing of the sump pump by using a top suction designed in the pump. The top suction obviates the need for air locks. It also makes it practically impossible for debris, dirt or any other such thing to find their way into the sump pump; while making it easy for the sump pump to be opened, disassembled and reassembled whenever the need arises.


The Wayne CDU1000 Submersible Sump Pump has a capacity to drain or pump 500 gallons of water or any other liquid through at least 10 feet of discharge lift in one hour. It is specifically designed for sump pits that are at least 11 inches in diameter. It also features an 8 foot water resistant cord that powers it. It can also be connected through a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter at no more than 115V.


The Wayne CDU1000 Submersible Sump Pump has not been adapted to drain any water with more viscosity than water.
