Answer: 
You would also want to monitor the use. If the pump sucks air, it will overheat and over time shorten the pump's life. If you could manage a small depression, you could then use a float switch to make the operation automatic.

Answer: 
Yes, it should work well for this application. Just be sure to use the supplied strainer on the intake (suction) hose to prevent any debris from getting into the pump and causing damage to the impeller.

Answer: 
The pump uses a series wound type of ac/dc motor and the actual current draw will depend somewhat on the pumping load. I measured a current of 6.5 to 6.7 amps at 120 volts ac under typical operating conditions. Rated maximum (running) current about 8.5 amps. Operation on a standard 15 amp household circuit should be satisfactory. If an extension cord is employed be certain the wire size is adequate Read More

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 128 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pump quit out of the box Received pump and set up a 1" ID by 10' inlet hose and 50', 5/8" outlet hose. Total rise from source to discharge about 8'. Was getting about 600 gal/hr with this set up Used 3 times over a week with third time about 5 hours. Total use was 8 hours. It shut off and I thought it was the automatic overheat feature, but it never restarted after cooling down. Had noticed the motor housing was hot to touch. HD accepted return and I ordered a replacement. Hoping I got a lemon. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great, solid, works, does not leak, using to pressurize solar hot water, easily goes up to 30psi Pump is good quality, very solid, does not leak, made to run very long time without stopping. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice transfer pump! Absolutely works like a champ. Very happy with purchase. First time use had t prime a couple of times, after that, plug it in and it's ready to go. September 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by portable transfer pump This product is heavy and well made. It works perfect. A little expensive however, I think it will last a very long time. I'm happy I made the purchase. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grow Grass!!!!!!! This pump and a small elec. genny powererd 2 sprinklers to help me grow grass 100 x 25 ft area August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy small portable pump Moves a lot of water for a 1/4 hp pump. Self-priming is good. Have run for up to two hours and no problem with the impellers or motor. August 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great pump This pump only requires you to hook up the hoses to the inlet and outlet. Pumps large volumes in minutes. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Helped me fill my swimming pool. After a few trials and errors, I was able to get this pump to pull water up a vertical well height of a about 30 feet. I had to install a foot valve to get the prime to last longer than one hour. I used PVC pipe and reinforced water hose but was sure to seal them air tight. If the lines are not sealed, the prime will not hold. It did loose prime but I let it cool for a while then started all over again. I think mine lost prime due to the vertical height. I used this to pump from an old well and it saved me at least three days of using my own well pump and water to fill my swimming pool. July 17, 2016
