Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steve Best Secondary Pump
We have added this pump as the secondary pump for the water which comes out only at the heavy rain.
It is plugged in all the time, but activates only at the heavy rain.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Do not buy this, it stopped just after 3 months, now can not return to store.
Installed this as a basement sump pump in Feb, now here in Jun we got a lot of rain and my wet alarm went off in the basement. Pump not working. Very Frustrating. Would not recommend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KRB We had to return for another one only after 3wks...it stopped working
The pump works great when its working, it started making a screeching noise and then would not work. We had to take it back to home depo and returned it for another one only after owning it for 3wks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Marty Terrible pump for pond maintanence
bought the pump to clean out a man made pond this spring. If the water is clear, it works as advertised. The second it gets to the dregs/dirty water it cannot handle it. I constantly had to clean it out with clean water to get it going again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DK Great Pump...if it is not defective
Pump works very well, assuming you get a working pump. I had a flooded cellar/basement area and the pump died after an hour. After a quick exchange at the store, the pump has worked as advertised and is keeping the water to a minimum. The pump has a 2 year warranty. Also, Home Depot will return within 90 days at the store. However, the Home Depot associate noticed that these pumps just die after about six months of use. My local Home Depot said they would most likely take it back for up to six months after purchase, which is enough time to at least get me through the Winter wet season. So, great pump, but keep your receipt in case it dies.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Spud Absolutely terrible!
I just wasted $130 by buying this pump from Home Depot. I used it three days and it died. There are no instructions as to troubleshooting. (Except telling me to check fuses and/or circuit breaker.) Haven't torn it apart yet, and I don't know that I will, since it doesn't seem to be trustworthy even when new. I have gone back to my homemade pump and will probably stick with it. I just wanted to try a "good" automatic pump which I could leave unattended and depend on it to keep my basement from completely flooding. A lesson has been learned, a very expensive lesson.

The recent storm we had mad life miserable when the dining room flooded two days before Christmas. This Pump not only saved our Christmas it saved our home as it pumped all of the water from the foundation and dining at an incredible speed. Thank you Everbilt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJCC Pumps a steady but not forceful stream for showers or cleaning up .
Out of the Box, the pump comes with a garden hose attachment and an instruction manual. Safety
warnings on two pages of the manual need to be read.
I've had my first shower in a year by putting this pump at the bottom of a water barrel, attaching a garden hose to the pump, and plugging it in. Safety warnings suggest you secure the pump. I'm not having any problems just placing it at the bottom of the barrel.
The ten foot cord length is important. I needed a cord to come out of the barrel to extend to an electrical outlet with a ground fault. The safety instructions warn against using an extension cord. I had another pump I could not use for this purpose because of a short cord. After that, I was aggressive about finding the cord length, even checking specs on the box in the store.
The specifications for this pump online show that it is a ten foot hose. The boxed pump product in the store does not show the hose length. When shopping I like to see what I need to know out front.
1/3 HP delivers a steady, but not forceful, stream of water to the tub, pictured. After adding a shower column to the hose, it slowed down. Either way, this pump provides enough power for both showering and cleaning up.
This utility pump was submersible and effortless to set up to a shower system, plug and pump. A warning at one inch of water that it's about to stop pumping would be nice!
I'm not recommending this because it was the first shower I've had in a year, but because it will also be easy to use to drain my yard if we get hit with a tropical storm.
