Ideal for emptying ponds, rain barrels and aquariums, this small, cordless, lightweight pump uses batteries to run for up to 5 hours, pumping 200 gallons (757 litres) per hour. However, in many cases you need only run the pump for less than a minute because it also works as a self-priming siphon. Just place the outlet lower than the inlet, switch it on to start the water flowing, then shut the power off and the water continues to flow by natural siphon action.
The 40" hose has a standard 3/4" fitting to let you attach it to a much longer garden hose. Lifts water to a height of 4'. Easy to clean.
Can also be set to float. Floating the pump is useful when you want to empty from the top down, such as when you want to remove the water but not the debris on the bottom. Uses three D-cell alkaline batteries (not included). The D-Cell Batteries are no longer available.
