Hi All, To avoid any confusion please see the below.

Please make sure your drill is in the forward position (clockwise). For reference this is indicated on the faceplate of the spindle, with an image of a drill and direction of travel.

The arrows located on the top stickers and either end by the fittings indicate the direction of flow.

Couldn't agree more with this comment. I tried using the pump for the first time today. The arrows showing the direction of Flow are at the top and all Point from right to left looking from the spindle side but there is one curved arrow pointing clockwise on the casing near the spindle which appears to dictate that the drill needs to drive the spindle in a clockwise direction....opposite to the direction of the water Flow arrows. This confusion has probably led to me unintentionally running the pump dry for more that the 12 second limit and I have never therefore been able to do the job I bought it for. Most confusing! I still don't know which way the drill should turn the spindle even after an exhaustive search for instructions online which simply don't exist as far as I can tell.

HAVING ONLY USED THIS PUMP ONCE SINCE IT WAS PURCHASED I WAS DELIGHTED TO SAY HOW EFFICIENT IT WAS, HOWEVER ON THE SECOND OCCASION I WAS UNSUCCESSFULL. UPON CLOSER EXAMINATION OF THE PUMP I REALIZED THERE WERE TWO VERY SMALL DIRECTIONAL ARROWS WHICH I HAD NOT OBSERVED WHICH INDICATED THE CORRECT FLOW CONSEQUENTLY,IT RESULTED IN ME RUNNING THE PUMP DRY MAKING IT U/S DUE TO MY ERROR WHICH I COULD PUT DOWN TO MY EYESIGHT OR AGE.

I WOULD RECOMEND THAT THESE TWO ARROWS BE HIGHLIGHTED FOR FUTURE BUYERS.

does this pump need primeing before use

Asked by dennis hancock on 20th of September 2018


Yes, It is necessary to prime the pump, particularly if the hose attached to the pump is of any length as these type of pumps can find it difficult to lift water if there is a significant amount of air in the hose.
