Pump works just at promised straight out the box. Pay a little more and you wont be disapointed. Saved me about two hours of work. Turtles happy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grateful Awesome little pump - works as described
We had the curtain drain at our house clog so we had water seeping into the basement which created puddles of about 1/2" before flowing to other parts of the basement. We bought this pump since it said it would pump down to 1/8" of depth. It definitely works as advertized. We had it hooked up to a heavy duty timer to turn on and off every 15 minutes and it ran continuously that way for three days straight. It would take almost all the standing water off the floor. I have a friend who brought over a Flotech pump, and it would not draw a suction when the Rigid pump did. It says not to run it dry, but we figured we would take a gamble if we were ever to get any sleep and we had no issues. This little pump was a lifesaver - highly recommended

I bought this ridgid pump just in case of an emergency. We have had tropical type moisture here in the midwest over the past couple summers. I didnt want to get caught unprepared if my lower level patio flooded or if we had a back up in the basement The 20' cord is great which helps out with its portablity It was quiet and efficient through a few test runs Pumped water at very quickly through a 50' garden hose Good solid pump for the price! Warranty seems decent as well!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RP Great Little Utility Pump for My Spa
Used the pump to drain my spa and it worked quietly and efficiently down to about 1/2 inch or so. Could have gone further but didn't want to have it run dry. Great copper hose connection and the long power cord came in handy in reaching the outlet on my patio. It costs more than some other choices but its well worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SickOfRain Haven't used this one, but it may replace one exactly like it
We inherited this pump when we bought our house and it's been working great to get water out of the basement. We're just not exactly sure how old it is so we bought another just so we're not stuck some day (would be our luck) and it actually seems unlikely I will need to use it. The current pump is working like a champ. I wish someone would make a small pump that had a float (our pipe is only about 6 inches) so I didn't have to watch this one but that's not a ding on this pump. For how it's designed, it works great. I will probably use it to clean our ponds.

This pump has been an outstanding addition to my home. Build quality is solid, if no frills. It primes quickly and can handle 10' of lift with no issues at all. Power draw is perfectly reasonable at 2.5 amps. I bought it to deal with seasonal flooding in my basement and workshop, which it handles nicely. I've run it for hours submerged in icewater with no issues at all, and once lent it to a neighbor who ran it for three days continuously, again with no problems. The screen over the intake is quite fine, so the pump will foul on small floating debris. I fabricated a little pre-filter for it out of an old window screen which keeps it running smoothly. It will draft down to roughly 0.25", which makes this one of the shallowest suction pumps I've encountered. This shallow draft capability is tremendously helpful for household water emergencies. I have used it a few times for dewatering tasks with my volunteer fire department, it's certainly no fire pump but it comes in handy because nothing the department has can draft nearly this shallow. I also toss it in the brook that flows through my back yard and use it to provide water to my immersion wort chiller when I am making beer. It works great!
Overall I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend this to anyone in the market for a ~1000gph submersible utility pump.
