Questions & Answers


Do you have this pump in your store?

Asked by October 10, 2020

I believe you have to order this pump and pick it up at your local store or have it shipped to your home. I purchased one several years ago. It is solidly built, reliable and performed well when needed. I recommend this product and would buy again.

Can this be used to pump water off a pool cover?

Asked by AG May 23, 2020

If you can keep the inlet hose submerged to keep the pump primed and keep it from sucking the leaves and pool cover into the inlet hose, yes. You can wrap the inlet hose with remnant window screen to prevent it from clogging on the leaves. This is a powerful pump. You can hook up a sprinkler to the outlet hose and water your lawn at the same time.

Can this pump be used with pool water (chemicals) without ruining the seals/impeller. The pump s...

Asked by toad May 5, 2020

Yes. If you can swim in the water, it will not affect the pump.

What is the duty cycle of the pump?

Asked by Admin January 1, 2020

The motor on the pump does not say. But it does state to check the motor brushes every 100 hours of use to prevent armature damage. So, it does not have a "continuous" duty cycle.

Does this have a carrying case?

Asked by Chacha September 12, 2019

No it doesn't have a carrying case.

I need to transfer water about 400' horizontally and lift it 4-5 feet. Would this pump be appropr...

Asked by Tom July 7, 2019

Sounds like you need a larger pump than I have experience for. You have the length and lift height, but you haven't stated your required flow rate (gpm).

The product description indicates this pump is self priming, but the user manual indicates you mu...

Asked by Jayhawker March 15, 2019

If your inlet hose is 20 feet or less in length and not too much uphill from your water source, it can prime itself. I have filled the hose with water before using the pump which helps it prime much faster. If you shut the pump off and leave the inlet hose in the water, it should still remain primed. You can always place a hose shut-off valve on the end of the outlet hose and close it after shutting off the pump to prevent water from feeding back toward the water source. Just open up the valve and turn on the pump to continue.

what kind of material is the impeller made of

Asked by Ricky March 7, 2019

Seems like an injection mold white plastic.

Can you use this while raining?

Asked by Shirley November 25, 2018

I suppose you could, although I used it to water my lawn, so was not used while raining. It may say in the manual, might be available on line. Great pump! I used 100' of hose and it was pumping uphill from the pond.

I have to pump from my back yard about 200 ft to drive way, will this work without burning up the...

Asked by Tim April 16, 2018

It should be fine but it really depends on the slope you are covering as well.

Great little pump for residential irrigation water management
Ease of portability and strong pressure makes this pump ideal for transferring water between tanks and irrigating landscape plants with hose and spray nozzle. I used readily available , inexpensive PVC pipe and couplings (all at HD) to connect the pump to my pick-up mounted water transfer tank and pump into my large storage tank. When I need pressure for my irrigation hose, I move the pump to the PVC pipe from my large storage tank. It all works with little fuss.

After two weeks I am still happy
Two things I did to mine was I added a ball valve to replace the primer plug. Now I just have to turn a lever add water, and turn the lever and fire it up. I also installed a short non restrictive hose shut off on the intake side so when I turn the pump off I shut that valve and it will hold it's prime. Otherwise you could install a foot valve which will do it automatically but my way is just fine.

Close to city pressure, quality.
I have only had it for a day so I can't speak for longevity. The pressure is almost as good as city pressure. And my city pressure is very high. I only used it for a couple minutes and it did not get hot in those couple of minutes. It seems very sturdy. I used quick connects and a switched outlet box (that has an on/off switch) . My input hose is about 15 or 20 feet and output hose is 75 feet.

Using this for a home water harvesting system
After researching a lot for what exactly I needed (and for a reasonable price) and reading reviews here on the HD website this pump sounded like this would work. I built a 1,650 gallon water harvesting system at my house. I have 6 - 275gal. containers that connect to a common line which reduces to a 1" water faucet at the end. I connected this pump to that line and and on the other end of the pump installed a 4 way brass hose adapter that leads to different sections of my yard to feed different soaker hose lines. My longest hose line is a 100' 5/8" - 3/4" hose that goes all the way around the back of my yard and then connected to that is 75' of soaker hose. I turned this pump on and I couldn't believe how much pressure there was to that soaker hose. This is a total of 175' from the pump. It had more pressure than from house water line. I was amazed and very happy. All my other lines leading from the pump to the yard are shorter and of course have plenty of pressure too. Now since I have this brass 4 way hose adapter on the exit side of the pump, I do have 3 hoses connecting to it, each one going to a different part of the yard. BUT I only turn on one hose at a time. So, after one area is watered, I turn that valve off and then turn on the next one. I didn't want any of you to think this pump would pressurize all 3 hoses at once. It may do 2 though. This thing has A LOT of pressure. This pump is not weather proof, but I wasn't about to carry this thing back & forth to the garage when I needed it and hook everything up again. This thing is VERY heavy (Cast Iron). So I placed it on a secure pad, built a weather proof cover for it out of an old plastic bucket so it stays nice and dry and all my hoses stay hooked up and are labeled where in the yard they water. When I need water, I remove the plastic cover off the pump, open the 1" valve from my harvesting containers to allow water into the pump which primes it, open one of the valves on my brass hose adapter and then plug it in. Great pump and the price was right. Took about 5-8 days (don't remember exactly) to get here from the online order date. Can't buy it in the store.
