Have one part of the back yard, near the laundry room that floods everyrtime it rains. Can't put in a drain, so I wondered if I could use this?

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

Answer: 
About 100 feet is the maximum height for any useful flow rate. The flow decreases nearly linearly from the maximum at zero lift to zero flow at about 100 to 110 feet of lift. Remember also that the size of pipe or hose can restrict the flow as well as the required lift on the suction side of the pump. I would not recommend using for heights over about 40 to 50 feet.

Answer: 
I am using it with a 50 foot rise, thru a 50 foot 5/8 in hose with a "Y" to 2 100 ft hoses. It has enough volume to run 2 impulse sprinklers. Very pleased with this purchase.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 123 reviewers.
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 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 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
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not powerful enough for our needs We returned this pump & ordered the 1 hp Wayne PSC100. The bigger pump works like a champ! Pulls the water from our 275 gal tank out 130 ft to our garden & pushes it thru the oscillating sprinkler. Great pump! August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent purchase Hefty cast iron. Simple to set up and use. Half the weight of my previous pump. Convenient handles. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent pump I'm pulling water 17' up from an old shallow well. pumping it through a 100' of 5/8" cheap light duty garden hose and it's running a regular type of Sprinkler head that I mounted in a wooden box and it's shooting water 25' with no problems what so ever. I used the same type of cheap light duty 5/8" garden hose as a suction hose cut to 18'. I may have to rig up some 18' harder PVC Sprinkler tube as the light weight garden hose I'm using for suction is kind of collapsed but it working excellent. so why change it for now. This little pump "ROCkS". Don't hesitate to buy one. June 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Utility Pump Easy to set up. Reliable. Develops excellent pressure. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Happy I bought this pump to replace a smaller 1/10 HP pump by the same manufacturer, to water the lawn and garden with recycled water. I use a suction hose, along with a garden hose and spray nozzle on the discharge. This pump easily generates twice the flow, higher pressure, and reduces the watering time significantly. So far so good on reliability, after a month of every-other-day use. Very happy with the purchase. June 7, 2016
