I use this in my marine engine fluid & filter changing as well as transmission fluid changes. Works great with removing marine engine coolant fluid from the exchange tanks on gasoline & diesel engines. Also very good on all make/model four stroke outboards.

I agree with earlier post, replace the hose clamps with stainless steel and I replaced the hose with a 6' length of reinforced clear PVC hose.

Yes I have recommended to other marine professionals.

Change the hose clamps before using

I'm absolutely Livid right now. I just cleaned up oil ALL over my garage. The plastic hose clamps are complete garbage. Hose popped off first use and sprayed oil all over the garage....Read complete review

I'm absolutely Livid right now. I just cleaned up oil ALL over my garage. The plastic hose clamps are complete garbage. Hose popped off first use and sprayed oil all over the garage. To save 2 bucks they used absolute garbage hose clamps that DO NOT WORK. Did you even test your own product! If you buy this install metal hose clamps before you use it. Gonna try and get my money back!!

Product is fundamentally flawed.

    Comments about Jabsco Portaquick 12V Oil Changer:

    The basis is a flexible impeller pump. As I was installing my 3rd , maybe 4th $45 impeller I was bending the vanes in the direction of the rotation before installing, as one would do for all flexible impellers.

    Then it hit me. Reversing the flow (to empty the bucket) quickly destroys the impeller.

    If I am wearing on this, please correct me but I don't think these kinds of pumps are intended to be reversed.

    I second the hose clamp review. Very poor design. If you are flipping the switch toward off (middle position) and happen to go past middle to reverse, you will have oil all over your garage /bilge/driveway.

        Don't waste your $$ on other products, I've owned them. Spend the $$ once and you won't regret it. Going through the dipstick with the engine warmed up, this pump emptied the oil pan in less than 5 minutes. The other lesser pumps, are a waste of money. Also once you get the oil out, just put the tube in a bucket that you want your waste oil, flip the switch the opposite way and it will empty your bucket that it's ready for the next time.

            I use this to change the oil in all of our water "toys". This changer is easy to use and easy to return the used oil to the continers for disposal.

                Replace hoseclamps with heavy duty metal clamps due to high pressure created by pump. Otherwise when you reverse flow you will have a big mess to clean up.

                  Best pump I've ever used, and I've tried a few. Even comes with the dipstick attachment to siphon engine oil out of the pan--Spend the extra few bucks a do the job without hassel.
