This item is simply not much more than a toy..
I had a water heater that needed new elements. To empty the tank into a lift station and pumped out of the basement, I purchased and hooked up this little contraption that was to quickly pump out my water heater. Initially I had a small bit of success with the pump; however, the flow was minimal and before long, the pump went down for the count.
My final solution was to simply suck on the hose and start a syphon. It worked quickly and the tank was empty in no time.
DON'T buy this item unless you just want to throw your money away.

Hook up was very easy, work in no time at all and got the job done. No problem.

I almost skipped this based on some of the bad reviews, but I'm glad I didn't. This worked like a champ removing a couple gallons of water from the bottom of a broken dishwasher. I was done in two minutes.
The water was gushing into the bucket, with as much pressure as a garden hose (I backed off on the drill RPM to stop all the splashing).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TimC I tried everything; this pump is a waste of time
I lubricated it before use. I primed it. I tried short hoses, long hoses, "pushing" the water (attaching near the water source), "pulling" the water (attaching near where I wanted to discharge) -- by the way, attaching near the source works much better; but everything ultimately resorted in little more than a dribble. I used a high-speed electric drill, using low RPM's, barely nothing. I cranked it up to where I thought the pump would break, a little more output, but still barely nothing. So, unless you're trying to drain a coffee cup which is glued down so you can't just dump it, I suggest you look elsewhere.

WOW!! This is a pump that fits in your portable toolbox! You really don't realize how often you actually need a pump, or could just REALLY use a pump. But invariably, it's always in a remote location where there is not power outlet. This little guy solves that problem quite handily. Pump dirty water, transfer gas, or even drain a small pond or bucket, this little pump can handle it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JerryY Works ok; leaked first use
My diesel truck holds 15qts of oil that I drain into a large bucket. It was too messy trying to pour the oil into a large funnel and into empty oil bottles. My hope was using this drill pump would be a little cleaner.
The pump was easy to assemble as the in and out are clearly marked along with an arrow to know which way to spin the drill.
Initially everything worked smoothly until I finished filling the first bottle. I noticed once I stopped the drill oil started to leak slowly from the pump housing so it made a bit of a mess. It stopped leaking once I started running the drill again. I double checked the fittings and they were fine; no drips.
I finished pumping all 15 qts into bottles and put the pump in a plastic bag. I'll try it again next oil change but if the pump starts leaking after the first use I don't expect it to last long.
For a cheap pump you might use a few times a year its serviceable but I would get a better one if you need to use it regularly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tulsadave worked like a charm
used it to empty an old water heater, then took care of a clogged sink. No leaks, but doesn't feel like it will last long, cheaply made, but you get what you pay for. will buy a utility transfer (self powered) pump when this goes out, will get alot of use.
