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 LogAutino Pump failed in less than 1 year!
We used this pump in the summer of 2015 for our pool, which at that time it worked great. However, we went to use the pump this year (2016) and it doesn't work.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fxp1 Great little pump to have around
My garage is below grade with a sloped driveway and from time to time get water collecting when it rains. Its never been that bad, but if it rises four inches it can go into the basement. Since hurricane Sandy I've been looking for a small submersible pump to setup during these times. I liked the Everbilt 1/3 HP submersible automatic utility pump for its ease of use. It can use a garden hose for carrying off water and the hose coupler now has a built in combination flap check valve, a nice extra. To play safe as the coupler is plastic I attached a quick connect metal fitting to protect the threads The auto on/off feature of the pump means I don't have to attend to it at night. I tested it and the water filled to about an inch or more then the pump kicked in taking water out into the street sewer. When it was down to about a 1/4” it shut off as designed. It put out a strong stream of water and lifted it about six feet in my situation. Its surprisingly quiet when operating until it gets to the very end because of cavitation taking in air. With this in the garage ready to go I feel much more secure especially with the changing climatic conditions lately. This is a great little pump to have around. From my experience looking for a pump in the middle of a storm is too late.
