Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This pump works great I recently purchased this Ridgid pump and used it to empty a water bed , It was fast and efficient , I highly recommend this pump to anyone that wants to have the best . November 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as promised I use this to pump to get the water off my pool cover. I've had two inexpensive submersible pumps, 1/12 and 1/4HP, and both were very disappointing and failed quickly. This pump is strong enough to collapse the inlet hose, and pumps out harder than my garden hose at 60'. Looks very well built, and glad to buy Ridgid at Home Depot for the service and support.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good utility pump After a few futile tries to "pump" I used teflon tape on all inlet threads and it began pumping. Seems like a very solid piece of equipment. If you call customer service, expect a wait, but you will get knowledgeable person to talk to. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1/2 HP UTILITY PUMP to the rescue The pump was easy to set up ( just screw in the 2 connectors, and insert priming plug) and was the size I needed at a price I could afford. Being from Ridgid I feel it will last a long time but only time will tell. The delivery was incredibly fast for where I live! April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice pump for the money easy to hook up and powerful enough to fill my irrigation tank. April 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Portable Pump The pump is a nice portable size and comes on a nice case but there are no adapters to connect the hose and it really does self not prime very well. I fill the priming port but it can still take a few restarts to get it to draw ever 3 feet. I only used it a couple of time to drain a hot water tank and pump off the top of my pool cover. I would pay a little more for the Wayne pump ( essentially the same pump) if the adapters were included. I purchased the adapters separately to connect the hoses. The documentation is not very clear when purchasing. December 30, 2014
