I bought this pump at least 12 years ago when we needed to pump water from the lake.

Once the house was up and we had our well working the pump wasn't needed.

Sean called yesterday, wondered if we had a pump suitable for draining a pool.

Took it down off the shelf, added some gas, gave it 8 pulls and it fired up.

Not strong at first but it eventually loosened up and started pumping with more force.  Unbelievable; after all those years of just sitting there it still works!


Now it's time to get to work.
