Massive rain storm last night. 100 year flood it seemed like. Entire field of water creeping up into our backyard overnight. City refused to help. No water services available to pump out water. We were left on our own. Found this unit online and available so bought it. We had to try something. This unit is AMAZING!! It literally has saved our house from flooding our basement. Yes, it is loud. Burns through a tank of gas in about 1 1/2 hours. But has saved us thousands of dollars in possible damages! Would highly recommend to anyone!

Fantastic results and we appreciate you leaving your feedback. A little noise and some extra gas is certainly worth not having a flooded basement! Again, we appreciate you telling your story. Thanks!

This pump works exceptionally well but has a hard time staying primed. I'm pulling water from approximately a 120' away through 2" pipe It seems like it takes 30 or 40 seconds before it actually picks up the water every time you started and there is a check valve on the end of the pipe

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. At the suction distance you describe, 30 seconds to prime seems reasonable. Re-prime should be almost instant with a check valve at the inlet. Please check that your valve is clear of debris and operating properly, and that there are no air leaks in the suction hose, fittings or attachment points. Everbilt Customer Service

This Gas-Powered Utility Pump I still have been not able to actually pump water with it because we are in the middle of winter here in Pennsylvania. Everything is still frozen. I must still buy other hose and various PVC products before operation setup etc. I plan to use this pump to remove water out of swimming pool in the backyard. I also have a small garden and rain water collection system that I am hoping to use this 5.5 HP 4-stroke Gas Powered Pump to pump water from my storage barrels to where needed in my garden. I have set the unit up. Gassed and oiled and started the Pump on the second pull. It sounds great and I have no doubt it will be exactly what I need beginning in the spring. This unit will pump 1800-9000gallons per hour depending on the length of hose it must move thru 0ft. to 80ft. The unit is surprisingly light weight and quiet when running for a 4-stroke engine. I am looking forward using this product. It also came with some clamps and a strainer to get me started. I am happy with this unit and it also has a 6-month warranty so I still have plenty of time to get it up and running the way it is meant to be used. Two thumbs up.

What an improvement! We have a swim spa that holds 1,800 gallons of water - a pain to drain. It has a fitting for a garden hose but takes forever to drain. This pump makes short work of the task! The pump is rated at 9,000 gallons/hour, but that depends on how far the water has to be lifted. It weighs 57 lbs in the shipping box, so it is not difficult to move. It does not come with the intake or discharge hoses. The intake hose cannot be one that rolls flat, since the suction from the pump would flatten it and not allow any water through. The discharge hose can be one that folds flat because the water coming out of the pump will fill it. The pump does come with a basket strainer, just in case there may be some small objects in the water. You certainly don't want anything other than water to go into the pump! I was also very pleased with how easy it started and that it wasn't as loud as I expected! The directions provided are excellent and very easy to follow - especially for the first time use! You have to remember to add engine oil and to prime the pump as well as to connect the 2" hoses to the appropriate connectors.
This is a great solution for anyone who has a pool or a spa!
Overall this pump does work , but it takes a little work and adjustments .
In the box it comes with the motor and pump assembled onto a frame ,hose clamps and 2 sets of fittings to make hoses. Additionally included is a strainer filter to restrict large partials from being sucked into the pump. A good set of instructions is included. Not included is motor oil, and hose material to make suction and waste lines. Of course you will also need gasoline to run the motor.
The frame is unbalanced being if you put weight from the top to one end the unit tries to tip. This is without any hoses connected. With the hoses for suction and waste secured the issue is not as evident. The assembly is light and balanced for carrying around but the frame tubing is a little light.
Starting the pump motor is easy a few pulls and it's running . Warm up is fast . Priming the pump is easy getting the water flow going quickly. In testing this unit I used a 10 foot suction line no strainer, and a 20 foot waste line . I pumped water from our pool into our raised hot tub.
Using the supplied cast aluminum fittings for the 2 lines my first issue with this pump fittings surfaced.. The suction and waste lines leaked from the threaded fittings . Since both male and female fittings being cast aluminum they do not seat well against each other . Trying to put the gorillila grip I had to torque them to the point I thought they would crack but they still leaked. Another trip to Home Depot I picked up some PVC fittings and remade my hose fittings. A success no more leaks. I didn't like the fact water coming out at the input and out put fittings for my application as my plans for this is to make a portable pool Vacuum and filter .
With the pump underway it worked very well , trying to measure the output for my application I figured about 5000 gallons a hour . The instructions say with 20 feet of waste line I should be getting 7800 gallons an hour . My lift is about only 3 feet. For me this is acceptable as I will be installing a filter on the waste side to collect particles from the vaccum system.,
All in all the pump works well with some modifications that are inexpensive if you want water tight fittings. I didn't try pre made hoses that have brass fittings which could also be a consideration if you don't want to bother with making hoses. I also didn't try using paste or Teflon tape as this shouldn't be required for this type of equipment.
So the motor is strong, runs well, easy to start, and is as quiet as you would expect from a 4 stroke engine. The pump is easy to prime moves water well.

Pump works well till it breaks
Bought the pump as we lose power and the sump pump gets overwhelmed on battery power. So saw we had a storm coming with high winds and 7 inches predicted so bought a the pump. It worked well almost too well. Directions did not show the lever was a throttle so I was shutting it on and off running it at full speed. Used it a 2nd time and it was ok. I kept it in the garage stored as suggested. Set it up a for a 3rd major storm 8 months latter and as I tested it I discovered the PLASTIC on /off switch shattered as I turned it off. To stop it I had to go pull the spark plug wire.
So looked like a simple switch to solder in place and called to get the part. I was told there was no part. As it required disassembly to replace and would void the warranty, I was told if I had it less then 6 months to return it. OF course it was past the warranty so there was nothing to void. But they could not sell me the part as they had no replacement parts. SO it is really a cheap disposable item that you will rebuy when a simple part breaks. I realized it was not going to last forever like some high end pump. However that a cheap simple switch is not replaceable is unacceptable which means I will need to have it fixed by a local repair shop and hope there is a similar switch or they can rig something up and spend a 1/3 of the price to fix it.
