A Great Idea!
Attached this to a VacMaster 12 gallon with the LARGE drain hole. Pumped the water up 10 vertical feet and out of the side of my house without a problem. It does leave about one inch of water in the bottom of the vac but I just left it in until finished then emptied the residue in the basement drain. If you do not have a basement drain this is better than lugging 12 gallons up a stairwell providing you have a way to run a hose to the outside.

Works much better than the Shop Vacs with a built-in pump
Adds the ability to pump collected water from my Ridgid wet/dry vacuum. Works much better than the Shop Vacs with a built-in pump. Highly recommended.

I had major flooding under my house and got tired of dumping my Shop-Vac every time it filled up with water so I found this pump and it works fantastic!

Saved my back in an emergency to control water intrusion. A strong pumper and easy fit.
At first I was a little worried as I wasn't able to get the pump to prime to work. After getting it to prime (by reverse flushing with water) the device has been working like a champ so far on my Craftsman Model # 12009 20 Gallon wet vac. Just dont run the device empty of water once it has been primed.
I had flood in the basement due to a leak in the mortar and field stone for a house build in 1900. I put the wet vac on a timer to pull water from the lowest place in the area every few hours till it filled. I'd then manual go and open the exit valve and turn on the pump. It pumped water outside to a height about 10 foot up to the yard outside with no issues. It saved me from having to lift this vacuum to pour the water into 5 gallon buckets for transport and managed to bring the water under control until the wall could be repaired.
My biggest concern is sand and debris in such water. The pump has a rock filter but a porous small sock over that filter would definitely increase the pump life. It has served as a great temporary solution but I am still evaluating the longevity of this pump.
The enclosed ball valves also has a tendency to leak. Hose washers are a must. All fittings supplied worked as desired with my model of Wet Vac.

Could not use with the current old shop.
Could not use with the current old shop. Discoveries there was no hole in our product to attach a pump
