Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Coujo Pump A Way
The Pump A Way hand pump is handy to have when working on irrigation systems and or plumbing issues that require the need to remove water. The product worked well, the only concern is the quality; after a days use the plastic side walls of the tube began to crack.

I purchased this product from the Glasgow Delaware home depot and it split about 5 minutes into its first use. for the $30.00 price tag it is definitely not worth the money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Park So strong it sucked up a frog
Excellent for sucking the water from antisyphon valves that are below grade

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dan works good but did not last
I used this to remove the water from several sprinkler valve boxes that needed new sprinkler valves. It worked great for that but after a few times the hose broke off the pump at the top where it is connected, it looks like it broke off on the hose area that was clamped on to hold it during the assembly process. I don’t see any way to fix it or attach another hose so now it is worthless.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by haygood Worked well enough. Hose fits inside a 1-1/2" pipe nicely enough
If it were a little more efficient I'd give it a couple more stars. Of the quart of water it sucks up with each stroke, it dumps what looks like several ounces back in. It also leaks just enough around the top of it (where the plunger goes into the top) that it gets your hands and potentially shoes and floor wet. Stopping that little leak would make using it a lot less annoying.
Other than those niggles, it does its job well. It beat using a bucket to empty a trench again, but maybe because I'm tired of the bucket drill after each rain. That just means I got to stand up a little straighter and wear out my arms with the pump instead of stressing my back and knees to bend over using the bucket. Time-wise it was probably about the same as the one gallon jug/bucket. The bucket is cheaper and doesn't mind leaves and dirt. The Pump A Way definitely doesn't like dirt, but it will move dirty water. You can feel it getting harder to pull and hear a scraping sound when you get too much dirt in the water. I'll be interested to see how long it lasts.
I was able to move the water about 20 feet by putting the pump's hose inside a 1-1/2" pipe. I had the lowest rung of a stepladder hold that end of the pipe up so the water would flow down. It isn't a water-tight seal or anything, but enough to handle the flow from the pump if the pipe has a couple inches per foot of slope on it.
I surely wouldn't mess with anything smaller than this, would consider a small electric pump that would get things done eventually without me, or you could just cut up a gallon jug and not worry too much about any of it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PhenomenalGore Messy, but gets the job done.
It's more handy than my shopvac, but it tends to leak around the handle. I would definitely recommend it, just be sure to keep some shop towels on hand for the small amount of water that will leak out while pumping.
