At 1/3 the price of electrical pumps, the versatile hand-held Slide-N-Pump makes short work of pumping or siphoning water anywhere, all without the need of or danger associated with electricity and water. The Slide-N-Pump is so easy-to-use. Simply attach a standard garden hose to both ends, insert the open hose-end into any volume of water or other liquids and Slide-N-Pump it anyway. (A short intake hose is recommended for optimum pumping). The Slide-N-Pump also acts as a siphon initiator. Attach a standard garden hose to both ends and use the Slide-N-Pump to initiate the siphon. Once water starts flowing, it will continue. (A long intake hose is recommended for siphoning, as well as removal of Slide-N-Pump once flow is initiated).
