    Comments about Manual Bilge Pumps:

    Perfect tool for removing water when you don't have access to or want to bother to use an electric pump. Great tool to remove water from the deep spots in a hot tub, the foot wells on your jet ski, etc.

      Comments about Manual Bilge Pumps:

      With no instructions included, it's difficult to determine which end of the hose to install in the discharge fitting. I tried both ends of the hose and neither was a good fit. Leaked badly and was difficult to use. Not very impressed.

      Disappointed in the results

      Pros

        Cons

        • Central Pump Rod Warped
        • Flimsy

        Best Uses

        • Bathroom
        • Small Kitchens

        Comments about Manual Bilge Pumps:

        We bought this product to pump water from small pools at a wildlife rehabilitation center and it gets used every day. During the first week it worked great, but after that the pump started to stick. It appears that the central rod is bending and will not go into the pump smoothly. Very disappointing

        Good Product Despite Bad Reviews

        By Doug

        Cons

        • Lack Of Instructions

        Best Uses

        • Tight Areas

        Comments about Manual Bilge Pumps:

        This product got many bad reviews. So many that I almost didn't purchase it. That would have been a mistake. Yes, if you put it together incorrectly the hose will come out and water will go everywhere. That said, make sure you install the rough cut end into the main receiver; not the end with the rubber fitting. It works very well and certainly gets the job done. Thank you West Marine for selling this product.

          Comments about Manual Bilge Pumps:

          Got this to get rain out of the dingy and works great. I is also fun to use and really pumps out the water fast. I got the longer hose so I can use it if need in the Big boat, but hope I never have to use it.

          Reviews are spot-on. Connection stinks!

          Best Uses

            Comments about Manual Bilge Pumps:

            I used this product to empty the bilge on my 17 ft Sunbird in order to remove the pump and switch for testing and repair/replacement.

            The other reviews noting the lousy fit / connection of the hose to the pump are spot on. I was able to hold it in place for the short time I used it, but the connection was not good and water was spewing out the fitting all the while. A simple redesign to employ an actual screw in connector would likely fix this issue and make this a great little device. As is, though, it's 2 stars at best.

              Needed it today as waves were coming over the transom. The hose just wouldn't stay connected to the housing at all. I will carry a coffee can with me from now on.

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Manual Bilge Pumps:

                  Used to pump out a dinghy kept floating at the dock. The hose didn't fit well -- duct tape sort of fixed that, though still leaky. I liked the handle, but kept the pump in a the car through the summer and after a month of blazing (oh, yeah!) New England summer temps the barrel warped, rendering it usless. Remembered why I prefer brand names and local chandleries. Recycled this & bought the Real Deal -- which has worked faultlessly for a year and a half. And will probably continue to do so for many future years.

                      The hose fits poorly into the housing causing leaks and spills. Overpriced for the quality.
