Rated 5 out of 5Â by SickOfRain Haven't used this one, but it may replace one exactly like it
We inherited this pump when we bought our house and it's been working great to get water out of the basement. We're just not exactly sure how old it is so we bought another just so we're not stuck some day (would be our luck) and it actually seems unlikely I will need to use it. The current pump is working like a champ. I wish someone would make a small pump that had a float (our pipe is only about 6 inches) so I didn't have to watch this one but that's not a ding on this pump. For how it's designed, it works great. I will probably use it to clean our ponds.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ven9999 Used as Pool Draining Pump
I am a pool service technician, and bought this pump to use as an easy to set-up, small pump for fountains and small spas, ponds, ect,. I love this pump, and have started using it to drain full size pools, especially those on properties that have hard to find or clogged sewer access pipes.
So far I have drained multiple ponds, and over thirteen full sized (20,000 gal) pools.
The pump flows at about the speed of a garden hose, and will drain a full sized pool in about 2 days or so.
The 21' cord is long enough to be used in a deep pool, and the top hose connector is very handy.
I just dropped the pump in the deep-end and went on my way. I would come back 2 days later and the pool would be drained and the pump sucking air. No Problem.
My full sized pump was being used when I first tried this one for a pool, and it has worked so well, I have been using it for all pool drains with no problem whatsoever.
Great product. I would buy again. As a matter of fact, I think I will buy another just as a spare.
But if they ever shorten the cord, I would not be able to use it for pools; the 21' power cord was the selling point for me.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Estrel Works as intended - easy and simple
Purchased it based on reviews. I used to partially drain my pool and it worked great! This 20' cord is just enough to reach the shallow end of my pool - would have been perfect if the chord is between 30' to 40' long. Other than that I love it! I would recommend to make this pump with different cord length i.e. 20' to 40' or 40' to 50' with different prices.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Billv Easy to use, very quiet when running
I purchased the unit to use when I needed to pump my half basement at my cottage which seems to fill up with about 4" of water when the spring comes, and the lake water table rises. This pump does the trick quickly and quietly.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Grateful Awesome little pump - works as described
We had the curtain drain at our house clog so we had water seeping into the basement which created puddles of about 1/2" before flowing to other parts of the basement. We bought this pump since it said it would pump down to 1/8" of depth. It definitely works as advertized. We had it hooked up to a heavy duty timer to turn on and off every 15 minutes and it ran continuously that way for three days straight. It would take almost all the standing water off the floor. I have a friend who brought over a Flotech pump, and it would not draw a suction when the Rigid pump did. It says not to run it dry, but we figured we would take a gamble if we were ever to get any sleep and we had no issues. This little pump was a lifesaver - highly recommended
