Came through in a "crisis"
My washing machine broke down mid-cycle on a Satuday and it was going to be a few days before the repair man could get to me. I used this siphon to get the water out of the drum. Even though this wasn't the purpose I bought it for, I was glad to have it and it worked like a charm.
This are much cheaper in price than the store. I need the 30 or 50 gallon tank to use it with.
Your not going to want to have to tip those big barrels of water to get the water out of the bottom, this will do the job.
important to have
I bought one one of these from the readystore. It is important to have, very sturdy for being plastic. I wish you would get a shorter one as well.
I bought this a while back when I purchased my first 30 gallon barrels. Works well. I have added 55 gallon barrels to my supplies and will be getting a second pump because I cut the other down for the shorter barrels.
This is a great product that is much cheaper here than in stores. It is a must have because you need the ability to get all of your stored water out of your barrels without wasting water. This is the sure fire way to do it. Not to mention in an emergency you can siphon gas from a tank as well. I have two of these, 1 for gas and 1 for water.
Will need to cut shorter for 15gal but should work fine
I wanted a little more portable 15 gal water barrel rather than the 30 gal. This is too tall for the fifteen as it comes. Will cut it down and it will be fine.
You never know
You never know when you'll need a siphon in an emergency situation, whether for gasoline, water, or another liquid. This pump makes life so much easier!
With this order I will have a total of 4 water siphon pumps.
I can't stress enough the importance of having multiple water pumps on hand for emergency situations! Two will be used for clean drinking water from storage barrels, one for siphoning gasoline, and the last for use siphoning water from a shallow well.
Don't expect anything fancy with this siphon pump but it will do the job. The hardest part for me was getting it to thread onto my barrel to create the vacuum. But once that happened I pumped it a few times and we had water. If you are using a hose or something to get water out of your barrels, you should for sure invest a little money into one these. It will save you a lot of time.
serves its purpose
this product is what it is. Kinda flimsy, but it does a good job and what it does, siphoning water. I have no complaints about the job it does. The price is even fine.
A Valued item
This will come in handy when retreiving water from storage containers, water sources, etc. Good price and quality is average but functions and gets the job done.
this seems OK, it is basically for extremely light duty (just to get the siphon going) so i feel it will work & last ... it is light duty plastic, though, for my preps i am still on the lookout for something more bulletproof.
