Complete waste of time (and money)
This pump assembles quickly and comes with instructions. However it simply doesn't work. I have used drill pumps in the past for pumping fuel oil and have been satisfied with the results. The pump instructions even state that the pump can be used to pump water or motor oil. I could not get this one to pump anything, even after priming.
I discovered that the hose connection crimp fitting wasn't pretightened at the factory - I put a hose clamp on to be certain that the pump wasn't sucking air. It didn't help.
I thought I had gotten a bad apple, but then I read the review comments of others about this pump. I wish I had read them before buying the pump and wasting my time. It motivated me to register with Home Depot so I could add my own review.
I was able to move the oil with another pump. I discarded the new drill pump in the trash and written off the $10.98 plus tax. After reading these other review comments, I will dig it out and return it - Diesel smell and all. I have been happy with my Home Depot experiences over the years. But they need to avoid shoddy products such as this one if they want to maintain credibility.

Bought this in an emergency and needed to move about 50 gallons of water. This pump moved about 10 before dying and never pumping another drop. After mentioning this to several people this seems to be a common thread with this product. Save your money and your time as this device is a pice of garbage.

I purchased this pump to empty a toilet I was throwing away so I didn't spill water on new carpet as I carried it outside. I followed directions to prime the pump. It removed about half the water and stopped pumping. I also tried to use it to remove oil from my car and I could never get it to pick up any oil. I threw it in the trash.

Easy to assemble but didn't pump. I was unable to get any water to flow through the hose.
