Answer: 
Yes. If your goal is to reduce or remove water from your pond this is the only pump you'll ever need.
You won't regret buying this pump. I'm surprised it did not cost more.

Answer: 
Yes, this is a normal use for this pump.
Keep in mind this pump can develop 30 gallons per minute which would be a large waterfall. Depending on the size of the waterfall you may really only need a small fountain pump. A fountain pump may be a little more money but uses a lot less energy. This pump pulls 3+amps and I am guessing but a fountain pump would pull only .5amps. Your energy costs would be

Yes. That is how I am using it. I have a ball valve in the pipe leading to the top of the waterfall so that I can control the flow rate. It works well in my application.

Answer: 
This particular pump is a water mover and doesn't build much pressure. I don't know what pressure is required to run a wand but from personal experience I have found it won't work. The only attachment I know that will work is the old fashioned way by using your thumb on the hose end to make the spray. That does work.

Any watering device that attaches to a hose will work, however, I would think about pumping pool water onto my garden if it has any kind of chemical in it, including a touch of bleach if you added that.

Answer: 
Hi there,
Yes you can do this but DO NOT have an on off valve on the wand. If you shut off the flow of water while the pump is running, it will create a back pressure that will over heat the motor. Unplug it to turn off the water flow.
Thanks

Can I use this to pump ditch water?

Asked by
Colorado

June 11, 2016
Bought an old house with ditch rights, but the pump doesn't work -- requires 220 wiring, which was cut when the house was completely rewired. I have a concrete lined "basin" with a big old pipe and valve coming straight from the ditch. Could I just put this pump in the basin, when the valve is open and water is coming out, and attach my garden hose? Not familiar with any of this stuff! Thanks.

Answer: 
Krissy, The pump will operate in the concrete lined basin and pump water out of it for you through a garden hose. That being said I am worried about what your goal is after you get the water out of the basin. The previous wiring of 220 suggests a high powered pump was used before. A pump that requires this type of power would be able to build pressure and/or move a large volume of water. Neither of which Read More
Krissy, The pump will operate in the concrete lined basin and pump water out of it for you through a garden hose. That being said I am worried about what your goal is after you get the water out of the basin. The previous wiring of 220 suggests a high powered pump was used before. A pump that requires this type of power would be able to build pressure and/or move a large volume of water. Neither of which this pump is capable of. It is a basic low pressure water mover.
If all you need to do is move about 15 to 20 gallons of water per minute to another location through a garden hose this pump will do just fine for you. Keep in mind that you will need to plug it in and unplug it when you want to use it. It is not an automatic pump.
If there is more to the story about what you want the water to do at the other end of the hose I would suggest that you call the factory customer service. My experience with them is they will be happy to help you and make sure you buy the right kind of pump you need to do the job. Even if they don't make that type of pump. Best way would be to go to www.Superiorpump.com and inquire through the contact us tab. Someone will call you back. I hope this helps.

The pump is a utility pump and will run when plugged in and off when un plugged. It does not have an on/off switch but one can be added if you wanted to.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A good pump for small projects This is a perfect pump for smaller projects. I use this for draining small spas. I also use it for descaling my tankless water heater. The 10 foot cord (really 9.5 feet) is plenty long for small pumping projects and you can clean the bottom screen by removing 3 stainless steel screws. It includes a carry handle, and an anti-airlock hole. It has the garden hose adapter so you just connect the hose and go. I used it on a 100 foot hose and it worked fine. It also allows up to 1-1/4 NPT discharge. For medium or large projects, step up to the 1/2 HP. Also I find that anything over 6 foot deep, you lose a lot of pumping performance, so for deeper waters, go to the 1/2 HP. June 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfactory. I am using this pump to pump and reuse water from the bath tub. It does the job well, and very quickly. There is one thing that should b e changed as far as the design on this pump is concerned. The handles are set at a lower level than is the electric cord on the top of the pump. It is too easy to take hold of the cord rather than the pump handles when moving the pump. Also, it would make the product a great deal more attractive if it included a shut -off switch. It is necessary to baby-sit the pump in order to prevent its running after all the water has been drained. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Performer I got this small pump primarily for emergency purposes, although I also intend to use it occasionally for swimming pool and water heater maintenance. I am a firm believer that because water is such a destructive force, having a pump on hand that can remove water to a very low level, is great “insurance.” In that regard, this pump does not disappoint. The manual that comes with the pump states it will pump down to 1/4” of the surface, and my tests at the top step of my pool, where the water level was about 3/4” above the surface of the step, seemed to support this claim (see picture). The pump put out a strong stream of water even when pumping at that shallow water level. The pump comes with a 10’ electric cord, which is a real plus because it allows for operation at a safe distance from the water supply without having to resort to any risk inherent to using an extension cord near water. The pump is only operated by plugging/unplugging the electric cord, there is no “switch” per se. There is a small “T” handle at the top to carry the pump, or to use as a grab point to retrieve the pump from the water with a hook, which can be a useful way to fetch it from down below. The only criticism I would offer, as other reviewers may have noted, is that the garden hose fitting, like the entire unit, is also made of plastic. I found it VERY easy to mis-thread the garden hose, so if you’re not careful and try to force your garden hose on when it’s not properly threaded, it is very easy to ruin the pump fitting. I really don’t understand why this component is not fabricated from metal, because the metal thread of the garden hose will win every time, when meeting a plastic component. All said, I was pleasantly surprised by the strong streaming power of this small unit, which I suggest makes it a great value, perhaps even “priceless” if you’re facing a water emergency. If you just take precaution when attaching your garden hose, you won’t be disappointed with the performance and features of this pump. April 24, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Submersible Pump Review We used this submersible pump to descale our tankless water heater. It performed flawlessly and we were obviously very pleased. I would recommend it to anyone needing a pump like this one. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solved my problem Had tried several pumps for my pond waterfall feature over past few years and never had one that I was happy with. Some cost much more than this one and either clogged or failed. This one has worked perfectly now for 3 weeks now and I have no complaints at all. Very good product. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Pump for accasional use Used it once so far to empty hot tub and it worked great. Gets all water out except for the last 1/4 inch June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice Utility Pump I just got this pump and we used it in a IBC tote to pump rainwater that we catch from the roof. It works perfectly for watering the garden. We even washed our 30' camper this weekend with the same water by using a switched outlet to plug the pump into. I really liked that you can just hook a hose on it and drop the pump with the hose attached down into the tote. Perfect for what we use it for, but it says that you can evacuate water from a basement or something else that you might want to empty and you wouldn't have to wade in to start using it. May 25, 2016
