These days the summer always seems to bring a hose pipe ban and it is a test of ingenuity to think of different ways of beating it. Well, here is just the answer for the occasional bath emptying, a drill powered pump with standard quick fix connections so that your hose can quickly be attached to the pump without any fiddle. In fact, if you use the quick fix bayonet connectors supplied they also have integral non-return valves so the hose doesn't leak everywhere when it is disconnected. Never run the pump dry and prime it if at all possible. Takes 1/2" bore hose. N.B. Not suitable for oils or chemicals.

Good valueTips for use - fasten to a small board before use 300mm or so square, works with battery drills but they are inclined to overheat and may stall so mains models are better for extended use. The pump comes packed with lithium or similar grease which caused a minor blockage on first use, do not be tempted to flush out afterwards with WD40 or similar as if will cause the 'o' ring seal to perish! Better to dry out on a c h radiator.

Well made and does the jobThis pump works well as long as you don't run it too fast or dry. It primes itself and pumps well. The quick-release connections are the same as the standard garden hose connections . The fact that a spare impeller is available is a bonus as many of these types of pump are not repairable.
