A: It's a submersible pump, and can pump out of your basement to ground level, so pumping out of a barrel shouldn't be a problem.
A: I don't see why not, we use this pump to flush our Tankless Water Heater and it works perfectly, plenty of power.
A: Hi there, Yes it can. Thanks
A: Hi there, Not sure where the oil is coming from if this is an "oil free" pump Call us @ 1-800-495-9278 while you are near the pump and we can go through a couple of things together. We answer this line 7 days a week to help. Mon-Fri, 8:00am - 8:00pm and Sat & Sun 10:00am - 5:00pm central time Thanks and have a GREAT DAY
A: This has been a great pump. I have used it the last 2 years during the Winter.to pump water off of the top of my above ground pool tarp. I've also used it to finish emptying the pool for Winter storage. No problems at all.
A: I have only used the pump to flush my tankless water heater, at most the run time has been only 10-20 minutes at a time. I never had any problems while using it this way. I have used it approximately 5 times.
A: The pump does have a screen on the bottom. I was finding my pump clogging up with leaves but ended up making a screened 5 gallon bucket to place the pump in the middle of it. That helped tremendously with my issues. The pump is great by the way.
A: Yes it will!
A: No. Algae will not clog the pump. Leaves and other debris will clog the screen on the bottom so you just need to pull it off it gets too much on it.
A: Hi there, Yes it could clog the pump. Take it out and clean it out from time to time and you should be fine using this pump. Thanks
A: Mine works great pumping water off my pool cover. Never had a problem.
A: Have your tried a different outlet with and without the extension cord? Have you tried the same outlet without the extension cord? Any bucket of water can suffice for a troubleshooting test. Is this a GFI outlet? If it continues to trigger all outlets with different breakers, then the pump is defective.
A: Hi there, You and I have talked already on this and I am waiting for you to call me back
