Wayne 12 Volt Transfer Pump - 3/4in. Ports, 340 GPH, 12 Volt Motor, Model# PC1
Beats a Bucket
I use rain water to water my organic garden and this pump gives me the ability to attach a hose and wand and provides enough pressure to spray 15 to 20' depending on the chosen output. I use it for all kinds of transferring of water from here to there. Great little tool.

Not for long
I bought the pump to pump water and it worked for the first season. During the winter after I had put it away, I went to use it and it would not run. I took it apart and the brushes for the electric motor had seized up. They were not making contact. I would not recommend to a friend.

satisfied with product
i rigged up this pump on a dock with a 12v battery to pump out a boat when needed. it works great and i am quite satisfied with the product. i especially like the included switch and the included suction end which basically drains the water close to the floor. thanks

I bought this pump in March and used it a few times to pump water from my trailer tank to my sprayer--maybe 1000 gallons total over 2 months. It worked fine. But then last week (early June) it failed. Took a look but can't really figure out what might have gone wrong. Very frustrating.

Not good for hot tubs or pool covers
Bought the pump to drain off my pool cover and my hot tub. Unfortunately, the "Easy To Use" directions on the side of box are misleading. They state - "1. Attach suction hose and place in water. 2. Attach garden hose to pump and place in desired discharge area. 3. Connect to power source. " The Instructions in the box say add one tablespoon of vegetable oil to both inlet and outlet to prime pump (you can view them from this page - go read it). I thought it was self priming! Once you drop the inlet hose into the pool, guess where the oil goes! I now have a sheen of cooking oil on my pool cover and in my hot tub. When running, it is a good little pump, but it is not what is advertised.

The pump that gets the job done
We needed a pump out on our property to transport water from rain barrels and 350 gallon totes to water troughs for our animals. We do not have electricity run out there and everything runs on solar panels and 12v deep cell batteries. So we needed a 12-volt style pump. We went through 12 pumps from HF, and for not even double the money tried this pump (recomended by a NT rep). The pump works just as good not (6 months later) as it did right out of the box. It has an extra long cord with a shut-off switch so you can hook it up to your truck or spare battery, set the pump/hoses up, and then turn on the pump. When it's full, turn the switch off and put away without wasting water (that is a premium when you don't have a well and it's collected via rain). I know that this sounds like a 'duh' thing to have on a pump, but let me tell you there are not any other pumps out there with these features straight from the factory. On top of it, the price was very reasonable. Hope this helps someone who may be deciding between this pump and others. take quality with a less GPH over a high GPH to get the job done fast.

Wayne 12V pump
This pump is functioning well doing exactly what it was purchased for. I mounted it to the top of an 1100 gallon rain colletion tank that supports a vegetable garden and some landscape. It easily pumps water 50+ feet and maintains good pressure. I run it 15 to 20 minutes and it does not get hot. Good pump for the price.

Works excellant for the application. Sucks all the water out better than a sump pump.

Just what I needed!
I've got a 40 gallon water bladder that's supposed to drain by gravity into my travel trailer when I fill it on the roof of my pick-up. Well, it always took forever to refill the tank by gravity, plus I have a roof rack for our three kayaks that always seemed to be in the way. Just received this pump two days before I left for the NA$CAR race in Dover, so even though I didn't have the kayak rack on, I decided to try it anyway. (The water supply is almost a 1/4 mile from our site.) With the bladder in the truck-bed instead of the roof, this unit pumped the bladder completely dry in no time! I picked up a 10' piece of white (potable water) hose to go between the bladder and the pump, and then I easily filled my tank if less than half the time it used to take! It worked so well that I filled two neighboring campers, as well.

This pump works and operates as it should. Emptied my kids pool and watered the lawn in no time.
