Sump Pump Reviews: Liberty, Zoeller, & Wayne Sump Pumps

At Waters Basement Services, we’re always looking to provide our customers with the best value.  After over 30 years in the industry, we’ve used a lot of different products and brands – the good and the bad.  Sump pumps are no different.  We’ve reviewed several different brands and models, and based on our experience and customer feedback, there’s one brand that we are using for all our projects.

Zoeller Sump Pump Review

Waters Basement Services, Inc. installed Zoeller sump pumps for a number of years.  However, we made the decision to change this based on product performance and customer feedback.  Our #1 focus has always been on quality and making sure you don’t need to worry about what is going on in your basement – and their product just wasn’t cutting it anymore.

We had service calls on the Zoeller sump pumps explaining that they were not working, or not working reliably.  When we were installing Zoeller pumps, they were only carried a 1-year warranty on their products, which is just too short of a warranty period for a product that should last years.

Upon inspection of the pumps, we frequently found that the switch was faulty and had to replace the sump pump for our customers.

Wayne Sump Pump Review

Looking for different products, we decided to consider Wayne Sump Pumps.  However, due to mixed reviews and a questionable warranty, we decided to seek other options.  Their sump pumps offered a 2-year warranty – a little better than Zoeller – but not as good as the company we ended up choosing.

Waters Basement Services has never made Wayne Sump Pumps a consistent part of our business, but we decided to seek a better option for our customers.

Liberty Sump Pump Review

The final sump pump we considered was Liberty Sump Pumps.  With a 3-year warranty and the added advantage of being a local company, Liberty seemed like a good option.  These sump pumps are made in the USA – manufactured locally in Bergen NY.

After a review of their products, we have decided to recommend the Liberty 250-Series 1/3hp sump pumps.

They back up their quality with their warranty – a full 3-year warranty.  After installing them with a number of customers, we’ve received very positive feedback.  They frequently remark on how quiet and efficient Liberty pumps are and operating worry-free. Waters Basement Services have received no complaints from our customers to date on Liberty sump pumps.

We are very pleased with the performance of Liberty Pumps and intend on continuing to recommend them to all of our clients.
