Product Description

Remove water or other liquids from just about anywhere using this powerful tool. The Slide N Pump is a manual water pump and siphon initiator in one. This means that you can use it to pump liquid from any area that a hose fits into, or for jobs where siphoning is possible, just a couple of pumps will start the process and allow water to flow continuously. It is an easy and inexpensive way to move water without the risk or cost associated with using something electric, and it is way more fool-proof than trying to suck on a hose with your mouth. The Slide N Pump is just as effective as any water pump that runs on electricity, but it can be had at a fraction of the cost. This makes it much more practical, because despite it's usefulness, it is a tool that most people won't use everyday.

Although it may only be used occasionally, The Slide N Pump is an invaluable addition to anyone's garage, basement or tool shed. It is perfect for removing liquid from a clogged toilet, pumping water out of a kiddie pool or hot tub, cleaning aquariums and ponds and so much more. With one of these on hand, disasters like leaky boats or flooded basements are much more manageable. It works with a regular old garden hose and takes no skill, practice or super human strength to operate. If you have standing water, clogged drains and gutters, or just want to perform maintenance on your birdbath or outdoor fountain, this is the perfect tool for you. The tool featured on this page is the regular size, but we also carry the Mini version which can be easier to store or take with you on the go, and it may be more ideal for occasional use or smaller jobs.

How To Use It:

Simple and effective, it could not be much easier to operate this device. Use it as a regular style manual water pump, or use it to initiate a siphon in a matter of seconds.

Use as a pump:
  • For basic pumping of liquid, simply attach a standard garden hose to each end. Any length will work, so add the ideal size for your job. Water will enter in the bottom and exit out the top.
  • Once attached, insert the open hose end from the lower part of the tool into any amount of water or other liquid.
  • To move water simply slide the tool up and down. With each movement, liquid will be sucked up into the hose. As you continue, it will begin to travel out the opposite end.
  • As long as you continue pumping and have the hose submerged, you will continue sucking in water. For this technique location, elevation and pressure do not matter. It is ideal for many jobs alone, but can also be useful when trying to remove the last bit of moisture after a siphon stops.
  • That's all there is to pumping water with this easy to use tool. Slide it back and forth to pump the water away.
Use as a siphon starter:
  • If you want to use it as a siphon, the procedure is similar to what is detailed above, and you will set things up in a similar way. The Slide N Pump is the only product of its kind available because it can pump liquid and initiate a siphon, while most products will only be good for one or the other.
  • The key to getting water to flow continuaously is keeping the pressure in the hose correct. THe container being drained needs to be higher up than the one you are emptying into. After you fill the hose with water using the tool, pressure will push water up and gravity will pull it down to keep it flowing up and out of the container, pool or ditch.
  • Insert the bottom end hose into the water and make sure it is submerged. Secure in place or watch to make sure it stays down once the flow begins.
  • Attach a hose to the opposite end or not depending upon your exact job. Move the tool or hose end to the location you want to drain into.
  • A few pumps will fill your hose and generate the pressure necessary to initiate the flow.
  • When conditions are optimal, a simple pump action will initiate the siphon and cause the liquid to start flowing. Once started it will continue until it is all removed. Once the flow begins, remove the tool from the hose and let it continue draining.
  • If any water remains that you want to get rid of, reattach the hose and use the pump action to suck it out.

Quickly move water from one place to another without making a mess or undertaking some proceedure that requires skill, practice and luck. This low cost manual water pump is hand operated and simple to set up and use. It can move large volumes of liquid in a short amount of time, and it eliminates the hassle and cost of using a larger tool. For each six pumps, you will be moving one gallon of water. This means that you can pump out several gallons of any liquid from any location in a matter of minutes. The Slide N Pump will make quick work of jobs that seem impossible, and it will save time when compared to other options. It stores easily thanks to the compact and simplistic design, and each component is made from specially formulated, lightweight plastic or rubber. This ensures effective results and easy operation, while superior strength ensures long term performance.

This is one of those devices, that you never knew you needed, but you won't want to live without. You can certainly get along without one, but when available, it will make life much easier as it saves loads of time and frustration. It may even save the day if a watery disaster strikes your home or yard unexpectedly. This is the perfect tool for jobs where you need to drain liquid, and it works in virtually any size space.

Works as Advertised
I use my Slide N Pump to start garden hose siphoning of rain water from my pool cover. Starts the flow easily after a half to dozen pumps with a 50 foot hose. Once good flow establish, I disconnect the Slide N Pump and let the siphon action drain the water. Great gadget.

Disappointed
I must have gotten a lemon. Will pump water, but works poorly as a siphon, water just dribbles out. Too much trouble to ship back. Will just look for something that works better

simplygoodstuff response: Sorry to hear of your trouble. Pumping is pretty straight forward, but there is some technique involved in siphoning. Please give us a call, and we would be happy to walk you through it, and let you know what you might want to avoid for best results.

Easy to Use
We tried a battery powered pump to move water and had only used it three times before the inside rusted out. A big waste of money... With the Slide N Pump we don't have to purchase batteries or have an electrical outlet nearby, just hook up the hoses and pump the unit twice and we move water quickly. This is a great product.

Perfect ! got is REALLY fast. 20 pumps and I got water flowing from way up in the woods, (an old farm well) down the hill to water trough for horses. It was JUST the tool I needed! A lucky find for me. Part of my Spring regimen from now on.

Q
i have a 140' deep well (electric) with a hose attachment hooked onto well. could i use your pump screwed into the hose outlet to pull up water in case of power outage. Is it strong enough to pull water up from this depth & will it work off of hose nozzle?
Asked by:  on 9/9/2014
A
Yes. You should be able to move water that far, and it does attach to a standard garden hose easily.

Q
Bought this and used once to drain water off of pool cover. I left the pump and slide and outlet hose on and it was sooooo slow...this morning I removed the pump and slide and of course the filter had grass in it! Duh!!Anyway flowing like crazy now. Question is can I forgo the outlet hose and just attach pump and slide to get it going then take off the pump and slide??? The pool is on a pretty steep hill. We used to prime it by using two people, fill the hose from an outside faucet, pinch off both ends, throw one end onto the cover, while other person went off down the hill. At 60 we are looking for an easier way!! So far very pleased!
Asked by:  on 9/18/2014
A
Glad to hear you like it. Once a siphon has been started, yes, you can detach the pump from the hose. Just make sure you keep the hose down so you don't lose pressure in the process.

Q
will this siphon lift the water 4 feet, ie, from ground-level bottom of above ground fountain, over the side and down to ground level another 2 feet to disperse?
Asked by:  on 9/21/2014
A
Yes. It's the perfect tool for draining outdoor fountains. Place the intake hose at the bottom of the fountain, attach the pump in the middle, and direct the other end up and over the side. You'll have to pump to get the siphon started, but if you keep the exit end of the hose low enough, the water should continue to flow out on it's own.

Q
Looking for a backup for very rare occasion when sump runs and power goes out. I have a ravine about 5 feet lower than my basement floor. Wondered if I could run a garden hose from the sump pit to the bottom of the ravine.. It is about 40 feet from the sump pit. Will the slide n pump work?
Asked by:  on 6/30/2014
A
Yes, It should work well for this use. We have had other customers mover water a longer distance.

Q
At work our crew spends over 1000 hrs per year pressure washing. We have a water source that we've not been able to use, because it is lower than our pressure washer. We need to defy gravity by pumping water 6' high for 25' of length until water hose is full; keep it primed by using a check valve on the upper end; hook the hose up to the PW; and let the PW pump take it from there. Is it worth a try? Will leaving the pump attached slow the max GPM of the hose requiring removal each time? Or will we be able to place the check valve upstream of the pump and leave the pump on for convenience? We're not sure that the PW pump will be strong enough to keep flow, but we're going to try it.
Asked by:  on 9/19/2014
A
Yes. You should be able to prime your pump as planned. You could leave the pump in place, but removing it may improve performance as you have mentioned. Worth a try? You bet.
