Works great! The only negative is it's a little loud but totally worth it.
Fantastic little pump, easy to use and does the job.
I used this to drain my spa and it was so much easier than draining directly from spa outlet. I was quick and easy and I was able to get all the water out of my spa.
Pump leaked from the shaft on the back side of the impeller housing on first use. There was a rubber o-ring sitting freely on the shaft behind the housing; disassembling the pump, removing a small retention piece, and placing the o-ring behind the felt spacer seemed to fix the problem. After reassembly the pump seemed to work fine but it shouldn't take surgery out of the box just to get it working as designed.
I have a 400 gallon spa. It takes about 1.5 hours to drain with this pump which is much faster than using the built-in spa gravity drain or a siphon hose. The 10' clear hose needs a weight to keep it anchored on the spa bottom to maintain suction and avoid having to physically hold it in place. I cobble something using a rubber band and a heavy serving spoon but the manufacturer should include a weight that you could slide over the end. The pump is water cooled so keeping constant suction is a must. It doesn't take long before the pump begins to overheat and slow if it loses suction. There is no on-off switch which is cumbersome, especially if the pump suddenly loses suction and you are scrambling to shut it down before it overheats. Overall, the pump works well but there is certainly room for improvement.
Low volume output. Takes too long. Might as well just siphon and save electricity. Gooodfor last bit that siphon can't reach
Made draining my spa that much easier. It drained 400 gallons in just under 2 hours which is an improvement versus all day if you have never done it with a pump. The only thing I did different is hooked to the drain spout instead of using the clear hose directly out of the spa.
I used this pump to drain 330 gallons of water from an IBC tank. I ran for several hours with no problem. The only problem is it's a little louder than I thought, and does not pump as fast as thought. However, it does what a 1/10 horsepower work. Other than the loudness, the pump did its job as intended.
Used this pump for the first time today and it performed very well. Took about 45 minutes to drain 325 gallons which I was pleased with. As another reviewer stated, you'll need to somehow keep the drain hose anchored to the floor as it floats up. I used a large rock.
It works well as I have a relatively small 2/3 person spa. It emptied it in about 30 minutes. It is best if you have a weight to put on the end of the suction hose to keep it at the bottom of the spa, otherwise it wants to float to the surface, suck air and start the pump to cavitate.
