Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo123 Rain Barrel application
We bought this pump when my 1/10 hp pump no longer supplied the pressure that we needed for my wife's container garden. The 1/2 hp gets the job done. I put a recirculation line on the pump discharge back to the rain barrel to make sure that it did not dead-head. I used PVC pipe for the suction line to prevent suction line collapse. The whole setup runs on an outdoor timer that I bought at Home Depot for around $15. (If you run on a timer, you may need a solenoid valve on the discharge to keep it from siphoning all the water from the barrel.) Also, make sure you don't run it dry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rainman Use it for rainwater collection tanks
I bought this pump to use with my rainwater storage tanks. I use it to water gardens with both by hand and using sprinkler. It works quite well, has enough pressure for use with 150 feet of hose. The carrying case is nice but wish it was molded to allow the couplings to be in place on the pump.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roofcleaner works as described
I bought this to boost water pressure but have not used it for this purpose yet. I did use it to drain standing water from a yard. It worked fine. I like the three year warranty.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by waterworks Rigid pump
Works as advertised. Takes a 3/4 inch line which is hard to find. I had to fabricate one with fittings that cost half of what I paid for the pump. If you buy this, remember that it takes the better part of a minute for it to fully pull the water into the pump and start "working".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by olderjef Great Purchase
I researched booster pumps for my well supply to a lawn sprinkler. This one had the best explanation for boosting as well as drawing (from a pond for example). It works perfectly and the price and free delivery was just what I was looking for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LouF Perfect rainwater niche pump
My first impression of the pump is that I am very happy with it! I wanted to pump stored rainwater,and this does the job outstandingly. I can run two sprinklers with 125 ft. of hose with no problem. Even choked down a bit. It is quiet (reasonably) , and at 1/2 hp, it is not too bad with electrical power consumption. The priming plug needs thread tape and some tightening to keep it from dribbling. I would strongly recommend this for these applications.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cactusgeorge The pump did exactly what I bought it for
This pump performed as advertised. I have two 55 gallon buried gray water tanks that roof runoff drains into. I live in an arid area so water is precious. I now pump out the otherwise wasted water to water dry areas of the yard. This pump delivered water uphill through a two hundred foot hose to a PVC plenum I made to distribute the water without pooling. Priming is a snap. Hose pressure more than I expected.
