1/4 HP Submersible Portable Utility Pump is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once in a Lifetime Basement Flooding? New England rains were brutal the week before Easter! Our basement had only about 4 inches of water so a sump pump wasn't doing me a lot of good since I couldn't draw the water down below 2.5 inches. I ordered this pump overnight from HD on a Wed afternoon. It arrived 1pm on Good Friday and our 1000 sq ft basement was pumped down to a few less than 1/4 in deep puddles in about a half hour. Hopefully, I'll never use it again but should the day come that I do, I know I'll have a pump that will do exactly what I want - get the water out and leave very little behind. Highly recommended!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for pumping water off an above ground pool cover. This pump works great for pumping off my above ground pool cover. I placed it inside a plastic milk crate (helps keep it vertical and easy to move around). In 2 hours it pumped more than 3" deep of water off the 33' diameter pool. I'll keep it stored in the basement to avoid issues with freezing. Seems well built and a reasonable price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Next time I'll buy a different brand This was my second Flotec pump. The first one was 1/6th HP and lasted about 5 years submerged in my pond and rarely turned on to power a waterfall. When its bearing failed I replaced it with this 1/4 HP unit, thinking that the higher rating might make it more durable. But the quality of manufacture had deteriorated, and this one failed after only two years. All 4 screws holding the water-proof case together completely rusted through. The intrusion of water then caused the circuit board to fail. This time I'll replace it with a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and Quick I love this pump! We have had 4 inches of rain in Chicago with 2 more to come. My detached garage has a French drain and when the yard floods, the water gathers in the garage. I had a small noisy pump that was really slow. This pump is 4 to 5 times faster and quiet. I am so happy to own this pump. For my needs, it is perfect. Luckily, I only need a pump 4 to 6 times a year. This is my first time using the pump and I hope I don't need it too often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOLID BUILT PUMP Pump is being used in basement. Purchased because it connects to garden hose. Have a pump that empties to outside but the line froze. Water collection hole holds about 25 gallons and pump removes it in a couple minutes. Only drawback is it needs an optional switch to work automatically and my Home Depot did not have the one made specifically for this pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Shipping a little slow but understandable. Great pump for the money. Would like to add a automatic switch as well, wish HD sold that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I bought this pump! After renting a sump pump for the second time to empty my pool, I decided I needed to buy one of my own after several days of rain filled the deep end with 1 1/2 feet of water. This little pump is a work horse. It pumped much faster than I expected and took the water down to within 1/4 inch or so. I'm very pleased with this purchase, no more pump rental for me!
