The water barrel rotary pump is a high quality pump designed to attach to the 2" bung hole on standard HDPE water barrels and can pump water and other water based products. This pump weighs less than 5 lbs and can process water at 9 gallons per minute, a rate that is usually more than sufficient for emergency situations. Because the riser tube comes in three sections, this pump can also be used on 30 gallon barrels as long has they have a 2" bung.
* This pump is not FDA approved because some of the inside parts use fiberglass. We still have many customers purchase this pump because they always put their water though a filter before using it. In addition, rotary pumps, buy their very nature, always have a small amount of water in them after use, which can lead to mold if not used frequently or cleaned after use. Again, this pump is a great water pump if you want to move water very fast, but please keep these safety tips in mind.

Product Review: As the other reviewers stated , for a pump made of plastic it is very well made. The downside, no assembly instructions but was ez to figure out. Also states to lubricate but doesn't tell you what to use. A little pricey but fast shipping in Calif. Using it to pump gray water from 55 gallon plastic barrel to water plants as we are facing a drought in Calif.

Product Review: This pump is built like a tank! I pulled it out of the box and couldn't believe the quality for a plastic product. Not only is the quality top-notch, it moves a LOT of water, more than enough to make things quick in an emergency.

Product Review: This yellow rotary pump is the absolute best one I have found. We used to have a vertical valve pump that took forever to just fill a 4 gallon container. That problem is history. The ad page for it states 9gpm and 7gpm. I am leaning toward the 9 on speed. When I took the pump out of the box I thought for sure they had given me the wrong pump because it was so well made. I had to look at the paper twice to convince myself it was the right one. Quality is just phenomenal and it has needs no lubric... More details
