It makes short work of emptying rain barrels or getting water out of any flooded area. The Slide n Pump Hand Powered Water Pumpworks with a variety of liquids, but is best suited for water.
It also works as a siphon
. Once you get the siphon initiated with the pump, it will continue to move water from one location to another.Setup is lightning fast
. With this simple pump, you can setup and drain a rain barrel in less time than it takes to find a power outlet for an electric pump. There's no starter cord to tug on, or spark plugs to clean. All you need is a standard garden hose
to attach to the end to move any amount of water. We recommend using a longer intake hose for siphoning, and using a short intake hose for optimum pumping needs.
Also, keep in mind the pumping action will work in most every circumstance assuming your intake hose is fairly strong, like a garden hose. With weak intake hoses you will typically see the hose collapse due to the strong suction. Also, siphoning is bound by the laws of gravity so don't expect this pump to be able to siphon water from a 20 foot well and dump the water at ground level. The water level you are pumping to must be lower than the in take point. Do a quick internet search on "how siphoning water works" before expecting what is impossible for this tool.Benefits of this hand pump
