Tampons might be handy to mop up all the leaks from this one pound drill pump!

These things are great when they are working, but they usually don't work for very long.

Good for syphoning diesel from lorries at 2am. :)

Yeh, I was thinking that - as my cars just been written off with £85 of fuel in it then this could have let me save that - but no time to put the idea into practice now.
I wouldn't expect it to last long, but I would bet most people would only ned it now and then, or for a single use anyway. Hot.

we are getting flooding very often now around the country and this could save your house or limit bad damages in an emergency. Make sure you got a drill and some hose too,lol

Well I am going to get one! After last year having a right arm like Arnie when the battery ran down on the bilge pump on my narrowboat and had to manually hand pump out about 20 gallons of water from the engine bay after a downpour!

yes, correct. Also think that will help a family, they must pay 1p at least for every 100 produced in the 3rd world countries

For a quid its worth it for an emergency - ie syphon fuel or if you got a block sink or toilet. I guess a lot also depends on the power of the drill.
#21
Right then! Get me one of these, a cheap electric drill from the argoose, crack open a gaggle of solar garden lights and I will have myself a Damien Hirst esque water feature.

I might get one to empty my pond too.

Top quality, and a pound. Need one of these for work. Was going to buy a good one but this will do the job plus it has a 12 month warranty as all the stuff from poundland does, hope the warranty will still be valid if i use it for industrial use.

Pretty sure it won't like all the pond weed you'll suck up.

These things will struggle to do 1000 litres per hour so assuming your pond is a metre deep you'll need it running for 24-hours continuously!

Hire a submersible pump - it will be cheaper than buying a new drill!

Many moons ago I used one of these to get red diesel into my tank, worked like a charm!

So you've tried one then?

is this good for drinking champagne quicker?

I bought one of these from a pound shop years ago to try and empty a pond. It didn't work at all, not even a tiny bit. Leave it on the shelf.
#30
Just use a car fuel pump hooked up to a battery :)
#31
These rock! I use mine with my £300 mains powered Makita drill. The hose doesn't connect very securely but a bit of gaffa tape and jobs a good'un.

A one year guarantee is all well and good but if the thing don't work when the water is pouring into your house, getting a £1 refund or replacement is going to offer little consolation
#35
Bought one what a load of cXXX give the pound to the rspca
would not work
#36
I wouldnt bother even trying.

Poundland is good for odds and sods, but i wouldnt bother with anything that has anything to do with DIY, generally they are either dangerous or made of cheese.
#37
good find
#38
i'm sure these have always been a pound in poundland so it isn't really an offer, my brother got one years ago. not bad :p

Everything has a purpose in life and to all you doubters don't knock it until you've tried it.

Pond comments, this is made for standard hosepipe fittings, i.e. 15mm pipe, so wouldn't try to empty a pond with it, fish tank though would be ideal.

This is actually the same as the ones you get all over, take this link for Toolstation, £5.43 in there http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Power+Tools/Pumps/Drill+Pump/d40/sd3220/p23710.

I bought 2 of these several years ago because I knew I'd need them at some point (i.e. exactly the same frame of mind as the OP) as had quite an elaborate watering system in the garden, little did I know that I'd use it to fix my central heating. Had a blockage on the upstairs rads after leaving it drained for a few months whilst making a few alterations. I simply shut all other valves off, used a few adapters in-between the pipes to my first rad and attached my Bosch, didn't work first time as was a bit chicken with the speed, had to be brave and put drill onto max, but with an almighty thud the blockage was sucked through and has been working fine since then. Therefore this £1 purchase has saved me an expensive plumbers call out. Use a bit of clear pipe and you can see how disgusting the water is or not too.

A few tips though, don't wizz it round without fluid in too fast for too long (i.e. anything more than a few seconds) as it starts to smell when the rubber melts, mine still works though after that but I wouldn't think its that efficient now!! Also make sure you have plenty of PTFE tape, only had a few dribbles as a result.

Needless to say, heat added..
