The Ryobi 18V One+ 20 GPM Submersible Water Transfer Pump is a powerful portable tool that isn’t just for landscaping – it’s also great for removing flooded basements or ponds. What makes it a great landscape management tool is that you can transfer water from your soil to your plants, saving you money on your water bill. If you have areas in your yard that collect water annoyingly, such as pool covers or your patio deck, you can kill two birds with one stone by using that water on your lawn or garden. You can also install a rain bucket and hook up a pump to keep your house clean.
The pump drains water up to 1-1/6 inches, so it’s not ideal – depending on the size of the area you’re draining, it can leave a lot of water behind. However, what it can pump, it pumps fast, thanks to its 1/6 horsepower it can move 20 liters of water per minute. It has an integrated system that filters waste, as well as a timer and sensor that will open the faucet if there is no water left to drain.
Ryobi’s 18V One+ 20 GPM Submersible Water Transfer Pump has the code P3020 and is priced at $199 at Home Depot, which includes a 4 Ah battery and charger.
