Pleasingly however this seemed to fit into the good camp, very good in fact! I used this on my Ford Focus to pull through diesel in order to bleed the system. The 2 off plastic pipes are approximately 1/4" ID and both come with clips that you expand with pliers and allow to contract onto the union (like jubilee clips but not screw driven) which I thought was a nice touch. I was surprised at the speed that the bulb operated and it was clear there was no cavitation or air bubbles etc introduced to the system. I would recommend this item.
Assembly is simple and quite fast, apart from relocating the clamps from their delivery position to the usage position over the connections. The bulb is initially quite stiff but will slacken after a little use. The tubing is initially tightly curled but a soaking in warm to hot water will help it to be straightened. The only things missing are a hook or some other mechanism to hold one end of the tubing in the source container and another for the receptacle otherwise it will initially need the proverbial three hands including one to prime the device whilst the two ends are held in situ.
The tubing diameter is sufficient to cope with any small particles but there is no filter to keep them out although one could be rigged if essential.
I am not generally a fan of Draper's products, especially their hand tools, as I have encountered too many that are of a minimal quality and will not survive more than a few uses. This is is marginally better as there are no major parts that are made of the soft metal they would normally use. However, despite following the information provided by other reviewers as the instructions are worse than useless I could still not get it to perform. There was more than 1 metre difference between the water level in the upper source container and the receptacle which should have been more than enough.
The instructions on the pack are sketchy and not really very useful but what instructions do you need? Well, more than you have here as I was unable to get a decent flow from it for the job I needed it for. Since I was unable to reach all the way into the header tank I was unable to hold the tube in place with the result that the natural curve of the tube prevented it resting squarely on the tank floor with the result that I could not get all the water out. A smaller bore and more flexible tube would have suited my needs better but of course others might need a different solution. I also found the bulb used to pump very rigid and difficult to work with. For me a softer and more flexible bulb would be better.
However, the build quality is good and the item seems unlikely to fail anytime soon.
Sturdy build quality
Bulb is very difficult to pump with
Not enough tubing
Tube bore is too large for some jobs
Always point the pump *UP* is my best tip (So arrow on pump pointing towards the sky)
Once you get it going - don't touch it!
A bit annoying how curly it is sometimes he's hard to reach the spot you're aiming for
For that use it was alittle hard to get the oil out because I had to pump it upwards and took a few pumps to get the oil in the tube.
Lent it to a family member to empty an old toilet cistern and it worked very well as they put the container on the floor and after a couple pumps the water almost came out by itself.
Using to transfer oil from drum (which is heavy) to tank (drum needs to sit above tank for my situation).
Even if I do get siphon working, it stops after a couple of minutes, and as it is fairly slow, that usually means I need to forget the siphon and just try to empty the drum into the tank.
