A backsaver. Made getting water out of the basement much easier. I had a little trouble with the connect to the wet vac. Some leakage. More of a problem with the installer than the pump.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ACDad Not what I was looking for
I had a backup of water in my storm drain clean out in my yard and was looking for a way to get the water out of the pipe. A sump pump was to big for the pipe so I decided to try this pump out. The product works but it couldn't keep up with how fast my shop
Vac was bringing in the water. You can have this on at the same time of you trying to suck up the water.
The product works to get rid of the water and it would be nice in a place where you couldn't dump it so easily. I just wish it would remove it faster.

Ridgid has always made great products and this is one of them. Purchased to pump a small 150 gallon pond. Hooked up to my 14 gallon Ridgid shop vac and away it went. Worked great and didn't over heat. However, I do wish it pumped the water a little faster than it did. Overall a solid product. Would buy this again if need be.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kevdog74 Cheap plastic impeller broke..no parts available...
Don't buy this pump it's junk. Home Depot(Ridgid VP2000 Pump), Vacmaster(PE401 pump), Workshop(MP2000 Multifit pump) and Sears(Crafstman Pumpout) are all identical but come in different color and made by the same manufacturer (Unknown). Problem is the cheap plastic impeller breaks rendering the pump unusable and no parts available by any of the retailers named above. You get what you pay for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fred Easy install and works great
A great addition for water pick-up. Attaches easily and empties the full vac in just under 2 minutes, which is less that 1/2 the time it takes to fill the vac. Hose attachment allows for sending water to any location up to 50 feet away. The included pump intake filter prevents large items from entering the pump, but will allow sand and other small objects to enter. Working is a sandy environment had no adverse impacts on the pump though. Very pleased with the operation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by djmichaud Excellent product. Works well, just a little awkward.
I have purchased a lot of Rigid equipment over the years. I have never been disappointed, especially with the lifetime warranty. I have had to return a defective battery for a drill, and they stand behind it.
The pump is an add-on device. The awkward portion is once the wet/dry vac is filled with water, you then turn the pump on to empty the vac's tank. In order to produce the suction necessary, the pump needs to be closed during "water pick-up". It is a two step process. Shop-Vac has a similar concept with a built in pump where the water never goes in the tank; it is PUMPED directly through the vac and into the attached garden hose. There are pros/cons to both methods. Overall, this is the better way if you plan to use your vac as an all-purpose wet and dry vacuum. This way, you are only using the pump when necessary.
