Yes it worked well i was able to transfer water from an old leaky tub to another new one with ease.
I had a particular need for this pump and quite frankly did not know it existed. I had enquirer at two very large national diy retailers and they didn’t know of them either. Since researching further and on the advice of a friend i found several different makes and models. I was warned off the cheaper varieties which start at around £7 and so chose this particular one which was still much cheaper than calling a plumber or builder to drain a water filled cavity following the recent flooding. The results were spectacular and the problem was quickly solved. With the weather the way it was before christmas, the cavity refilled two more times and i was quickly able to rectify the matter until a permanent solution was found. Hopefully i will not have further use of it, but it has more than paid for itself on that one job and i am glad to have it in my arsenal of tools “just in case”. Incidentally two friends have since borrowed it and used it successfully but i made sure this was one tool i got back. The only thing to remember is because it pumps water faster than most others that i could find currently available, you do need to use it with a mains powered drill.
Fantastic product, we needed to replace our oil tank so used it to take the oil out and put into drums, then when the new tank was in place we used it to put the oil back in from the drums, so easy.
This was bought for a future project and has only received limited use. So far it has performed very well under a trial situation. It is very well made and from first views i feel it will do the job as intended.

Used with old b & d mains drill. It did exactly as it should, pumped water at a good rate. If pumping from a higher level to a lower level, the fluid will continue to syphon (through the pump) after the drill stops. This was helpful to me, but may not be to you. I hapened to have an inline valve to stop the flow at the exact time. Uses 3/4 inch hose connection. Used to remove water from bottom of heating oil tank. Use any power tool with care.
Used one before very powerfull only stop useing old one when i dropped on floor and broke it. Only complaint is that shaft could do with being longer.
