Found 22nd Feb 2010
This deal sucks big time, up to 13,000 litres per hour. This is an excellent price for a pump of this capacity.
I bought one of these a couple of years back for pumping out my garden pond and it has worked well.

* Heavy-duty water pump with powerful 650 watt motor
* Maximum pumping capacity (l/hr): 13,000
* Quiet, maintenance-free motor with overheat protection
* Max. immersion depth (m): 7
* Includes 8m rope, 10m cable and instructions
* 3 year manufacturer's warranty
* was £24.99

That is cheap! Shame I just spent 80 quid on a specialist one for my pond, this would probably have done instead.

Never used one before, but would this pump water away from my garden when it floods in heavy rain ?

What does it mean includes 8m rope ... sorry for the silly questions !

If its for a pond you use the rope to pull it back out again, rather than use the hose which could get damaged.

You may need a dirty water pump. This can handle solids up to 5 m.m. dia.

Is this for clean water only or can it handle small particles (1-2cm) too?

I'm guessing clean only...

edit:
Ignore me, just saw the last post. Thanks.

2cm isn't really a small particle!

Anyone know if this would pump water from a stream which is about a foot deep in places, up about a meter or so into my garden? Also i know its meant for plunging into water but could it run out of the water with a suitable pipe taking water from the stream?

If this pump isn't suitable does anyone know of a low cost solution?

Many thanks for any information.

this kind of pump works best if it's immersed , you can get round that by holding the float up so it thinks it's immersed and it will pump down to about ankle depth, i have used a similar pump to drain a septic tank and a ground cellar which had stones in the bottom. this is a good price, almost disposable ,even if just use once, you can't go wrong.

Good deal, if I can find one....

Great price, handy for pumping out basements and tanks, may even buy 2 and keep 1 spare.
Heat and rep.

These are great for the price... I got one off ebay a few years ago which was £40 with P&P... this one is slight more powerful with 3 yr cover for £20... brill... good find as I missed it on my new letter... I will be getting one fgor that price

Isn't that stealing? :? I'm sure some wildlife would be rather unhappy if you did this.

This is an extremely good price for a great pump. Got one last time when it was at Lidl and worked great. At £11.99 it's a steal.

would this be sufficient for a 30L tank?

sorry but this is going to be a really stupid Q .. Is this any good for petol or diesal storing ????

I live very far away from the station & wanted to know if its any good

Sorry for the silly question from me as well... but is this meant to pump out the water from my pond (ie. when all my fish has died and I want to clean it etc.)

Or, is this meant to be like a filter pump, where I can leave it running 24/7 and it pumps my pond water into a filter unit, then back into the pond?

Thanks.

Yes it would do just fine, until you find out that your electric bill has risen by nearly £700 a year (@12p per unit) :w00t:

It is more suited to emptying the pond, this is a powerful pump, 600 Watts, you wouldn't want to leave it running 24/7

No good for dirty water then? I want to empty my pond. Surely it has a filter to stop crap getting in?

Could not see anything on how high this would pump above water level so be careful that will pump to your required height. Also it may not have much pressure as these tend to have high flow rates at low pressures only.

This pump will pump a minimum 7m head.

Hope it's made better than some of their other tools.
My "telescopic anvil lopper" from last year has a broken anvil already. Can't find a replacement anywhere either.

Depends, my pond one is designed to pump small solids (a few mm) which are then removed by the filter at the other end before the water returning to the pond. I have only recently moved here, and the pond was 80% slime/silt, so I have been using this pump to get rid of all the small debris. Leaves etc. still need to be removed by hand.

That's it if lasts long enough to consume £700 worth of electric.

If it doesn't, take it back, it's got a 3 year warranty.

Couldn't find this in Aylesbury - anyone seen one anywhere in the Bucks area?

None in Brighton -crawley area
Has any one found one yet?

Looks like these are not available in the South. If I enter a location a location in the north or midlands this pump is on sale. Interestingly I see that in Gloucester there are two types of pump.

I managed to get one at the Launceston store there were only 4 -all in very tatty boxes held together with cello tape but buy the time I had finished looking round they had all gone.

Mom said they had about 12 at the Ilfracombe store when she went on Tuesday if that's helpful to anyone?
