I used it to empty my hot tub all the way down to about 1/8 of an inch of water very quickly in September. I will also use it as a back up for any flooding I may have.It's a nice handy pump.
Initially this pump would not run consistently, but would stop after running about 15 minutes, but would start again with no problem. This happened about the first four times we used it to pump water from a ditch and it was very frustrating having to walk back and forth to restart it. After reading several reviews, we looked into better fittings for the hoses and since then, the pump has run consistently better for the last three uses, even after running a whole tank of gas for longer periods of time (1 to 2 hours). This could be because no air is getting in the lines anymore - not sure why for certain that it's running better. The pump starts easily (always has) and is powerful enough for our uses. We are running 600' of layflat hose with about a 15' head height to water garden and pasture and it has plenty of power to do this even at 1/4 speed. I am happy with this purchase now that the pump is "behaving itself" to my expectations.
Great sewer pump. Arrived quickly. Cost a little more than same horse power pump at Home Depot but has a longer cord and looked like it was built better. Came bolted to plywood to protect the pump. All great.
