Power Equipment Direct Recommended

This transfer pump comes with a handle on it, so even though it is a little heavier than the "better" recommendation it is still very portable with the added handle.

This pump also has a strong and corrosion-resistant stainless steel construction. The pump provides enough volume and pressure to run a couple average lawn sprinklers. It is also recommended for all of the dewatering applications we mentioned in our "better" recommendation: emptying flooded basements,... more

Works Great
My application - 100 gallon water tank in the back of my truck to wash my airplane. I connected a garden hose with a nozzle up to it. (nozzle is open at all times)

Provides perfect amount of flow and pressure. Quieter than I expected.

Perfect Fit For Purpose Pump
I use this pump for camping. It moves water at a great rate from a transfer tank I carry in my pickup to a permanent water tower on my land. It is light and runs off my 1500 watt generator. Only down side is it does not have an off/on switch so I rigged one up to allow better control. This pump was putting out at least 5 gpm against head of 20 ft. I can use it to pressure a water system which includes a shower and a hot water tank.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Store, Quiet, Light Weight

I am pumping water 175' from the lake to a 25 gallon holding tank. The vertical lift is 11'. My Simer 2825ss pump works great, fills the water tank in 10 minutes.

Great Pump But Not Perfect
Bottom line... I am pleased with this pump. I use it to transfer water and nutrients to/from a hydroponic garden.

There are two complaints that I have:

1) There is no on/off switch! You must unplug it from the source to turn it off. Of course I will change that soon but in the meantime, it is a hassle.

2) The hose adapters that come with the pump are crappy, plastic junk. I consider myself to be quite handy around the house and yet I managed to strip the threads on both adapters! ... more
Pros: Durable, High Quality
Cons: Heavy, No Onoff Switch, Cheap Plastic Hose Adapters

Good Small Scale Sprinkler Pump
I have two 275 gallon IBC poly tanks in tandem that I fill with a small sump pump from a small stream nearby for the purpose of watering the lawn and garden. I use the Simer 2825SS to drive two Rainbird sprinklers simultaneously from the storage tanks. This pump supplies adequate pressure and volume to drive both sprinklers. The only problem I had was when I first unpacked the pump the end vent cap was bent in, pressing against the fan on the end of the motor shaft and preventing it from... more

Pump Works Just Fine And At A Relatively Low Level Of Noise
I use this pump to circulate fertilizer solution in a hydroponic system in a classroom. It does great, provides enough PSI to distribute the fertilizer and operates quiet enough for the students to learn.

Good Choice For Us
We needed to transfer drinking water at 10 gallon per minute. We were surprised this pump was 1 hp but see that this is a well designed, durable unit much better suited to our needs than the smaller pumps we considered.

Finally A Pump That Performs..
I had two pumps before this one, they cost a lot less and performed very poorly. So I guest the old saying is true in this case,you must invest in a better product to get performance.The old pumps cost about about $40.00, compared to $210.00, this one cost. But this pump really pumps a lot more water. I think as much pressure as out of a city hook up and a whole lot cheaper. I am pumping up 12 feet and a 150 foot hose from the lake. All the pressure one would ever need and a hole lot cheaper... more

Transfer Pump?
I am in north Texas engulfed in the stage 5 drought catastrophe trying to save plants and turf. I am hauling 300 gal. across town gravity watering things until I decided to order this transfer pump to speed the process up. Received the pump early week and was impressed the hose adapters were included. Tefloned the pieces and assembled. Wednesday I made a water run to fill the 300 gal. tank during lunch. Today (Friday) I anxiously connected hoses to begin watering things, plugged in the pump and... more

Simmer Transfer Pump
I am using the pump for watering plants in the yard up to 75 + feet away from my rain water barrels.. Works great. Suction is so good it is collapsing my old garden hoses. I need to either buy a stronger walled hose or use PVC pipe for the suction out of the rain barrels. My dad had an old Simmer paddle pump he used on the farm and gave to me for pumping water. It had to have grease put into cups on each end of the shaft and continued to work great until I sold before we moved to... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Quiet, High Quality

Running Sprinklers Using Lake Water
I pump lake water with pump mounted about 2 ft. off water on boat dock. I use a 10 amp. 100 ft extension cord and pump water up to 200 ft. horizional with abt 20 ft. of lift. I put an anti-syphion valve between pump & 3/4" garden hose. EASY!!!

Simer 2825ss - Works Fine
This pump is a replacement for a Sears Sprinkler Utility Pump I have used for a few years. It is used to suck water out of 4 interconnected 275 Gallon tanks that take water from the roof through downspouts and pump it through a single garden hose for lawn / garden watering purposes. The amount of water that it puts out about matches my previous 1/2 HP pump.

The only thing I find hokey about this pump is that there is no power switch, so I have to pull the cord from the outlet to start and... more

Not As Powerful As Expected.
We thought it would be powerful enough to pump 2-3 50-100 ft. hose sprinklers but it only can manage (2) 50 ft. or one 100 ft. so we will make due with the one 100 ft and go purchase a higher HP at our local Lowes to handle our two 100 ft. sprinklers.

It is easy to operate and the folks were very nice. It just needs to be more powerful which is strange because it isn't on much of an incline. It would be fine for a small job.

Using Pump
I use it to transfer water from a 275 gallon container in the bed of my truck to my fresh water rv tank. It puts out flow equivalent to a garden hose so only about 5-8 minutes to fill the 40 gallon rv tank. Only have used it about a dozen times but it works great.

Sap Transfer Pump
I purchased this pump with the intention of pumping maple sap from our reverse osmosis process. The pump has met all my expectations as I rigged it up with one inch suction and discharge. I think my gpm is actually a bit higher than the 10 gpm claimed. Appears to be a very well made unit and I expect it will last for a long time.

A Great Way To Irrigate My Garden
This summer (2012) is the driest in this area in well over forty years. Our home is on municipal water but there's a shallow well on the property from maybe eighty years ago. Water use restrictions occasionally occur from the water district. Our garden is just too important to lose to drought.

PROs: This is a great unit. It is well built and simple to use. I installed a 1" intake line and a foot valve and dropped it into the well (5.5 feet of water, maybe 1500 gallons available),... more

Works Well Except For Priming
I have a 1/4 horse Simer submersible that couldn't get water up a berm away from the ditch. It is now taking care of the vegetables while the 1 horse does the rest. The problem is that this model (1HP) loses its prime, often while it's watering. It can take a while but eventually there's half as much water as when it starts. Almost every time it needs to be primed before it gets going, so that's a pain but once it's going it does well. It is easy to carry though I don't move it around, but... more

Good Pump
I use it to transfer water from water storage barrels I use to haul water to my off grid cabin, and fill a large storage tank there. I needed a pump that would not rust since i'm using it to transfer potable water. A cast iron pump i used to have rusted and it showed in the bottom of my storage tank. I had to toss the old tank because i noticed the rust on the bottom forming after one use of my WAYNE transfer pump. (I should have noticed that it was made from cast iron. My fault.

Simer Pump Works Great
I needed a pump that would provide city water pressure in order to fill my RV tank. I have a Itasca Suncruiser Class A and it is impossible to gravity fill the water tank. I also use the pump to both clean and disinfect my water system. This pump works beautifully.

For this purpose I would recommend this water transfer pump. All the wear... more
