Turbo Pump is a device which allows you to quickly and easily transfer liquid from one container into another. This may include water, oil, gasoline, and the majority of other liquids. It has a long tube which transfers the liquid while ensuring that nothing spills and is wasted. There is 'Turbo Syphon Technology' which makes sure that the transfer is done at lightning speed. The manufacturer claims that the device can transfer a gallon of liquid in 20 seconds.

Features

  • Transfers Liquids

    The device does the job it's meant to do which is to transfer liquids from one device to another. According to reviews, the Turbo Pump really can transfer a number of different liquids including water, oil, wiper fluid, and others. This is very useful since when you do the transfer by lifting and pouring, liquid tends to spill and get lost.

  • Turbo Syphon Technology

    Turbo Syphon Technology is what ensures that the liquid will pump as quickly as possible. The manufacturer claims that the device can transfer a gallon of liquid in 20 seconds. Obviously, this is far safer and more efficient than syphoning yourself!

  • Hands-Free Clip

    When you're transferring liquid, you can engage the hands-free clip so you don't have to do the pumping manually. The device will automatically transfer the liquid rapidly.

  • Pumps to the Last Drop

    According to the manufacturer, the device is capable of pumping every last drop of water in the container, so none goes to waste. This is true of any type of liquid you want to transfer.

  • Auto-Stop Sensor

    The auto-stop sensor is supposed to detect when you're getting close to filling up the container, and beep to let you know to stop the transfer. This feature could also help to prevent the container from spilling over and wasting liquid.

  • Requires 2 AA Batteries

    The device runs on 2 AA batteries, and they are not included when you make your purchase. You have to buy them separately.

Pros

  • Does the Transfer Well

    The basic purpose of Turbo Pump is to quickly and easily transfer liquid from one container to another. This is an extremely useful and versatile purpose. You can employ it to fill gasoline tanks, drain the pool or the hot tub, empty the fish tank, and dozens of other purposes.

  • Lightweight

    The device is very lightweight, meaning it's easy to carry and to bring along on a driving trip. It's very portable for this reason, which adds to its usefulness.

  • Drains Really Fast

    The manufacturer makes claims about how fast the device can drain fluid. Several customers have tested out this proposition, and the speed isn't as great as they purport. However, the device still does drain really quickly. This certainly makes it extremely useful.

  • Great for Winterizing

    The Turbo Pump is the ideal device for winterizing. You can quickly and easily drain the gasoline from all your winter vehicles, such as your snowmobile, or mowers. Tasks which were previously awkward and a hassle become fast and easy with Turbo Pump.

  • Easy to Store

    Turbo Pump is light and doesn't take up a lot of room, so it's really easy to store when you don't need it. You can leave it in the garage, shed, or any other place you store tools and other equipment.

  • Ideal if You Can't Lift Tank

    This device is perfect for people who have difficulty lifting heavy things, such as elderly people or individuals with certain disabilities. It allows them to take care of tasks that they previously would have had to seek out help to accomplish, providing greater independence.

  • Special Offer

    There is a limited time offer available. If you buy one Turbo Pump, you get a second one almost for free. You only have to pay the shipping and handling fees for the second item. In addition, the shipping for the first device is free. This offer makes an already reasonably priced item downright cheap!

Cons

  • Auto-Stop Sensor Doesn't Work

    The auto-stop sensor sounded like such a great feature but some customers who did online video reviews showed that the feature doesn't really work. It may well be that there are a few faulty devices out there, but it doesn't look promising.

  • Doesn't Get All of the Liquid

    Again, the manufacturer promises that Turbo Pump transfers every last drop of the liquid, but according to video demos this is not the case. The intake tube is in fact too long to get to the lowest point, which would enable every drop of liquid to transfer.

  • It's Ugly

    It's not important and it has no bearing on how effective the device is, but it's such an ugly, garish color and it's hard to understand why it was used. They would have been better off with something neutral, like gray. The best option would be clear so that you can see how much liquid remains as it is draining.

  • Batteries Aren't Included

    This is also a small point, but sometimes small things are important. The device requires 2 double A batteries, and the initial set is not included. Companies often do include the initial set of batteries.

  • Not as Fast as They Claim

    Despite the manufacturer's promise, customer demos again show that this product does not drain as fast as the claim, - a gallon in 20 seconds. That doesn't mean that the device isn't very useful for draining fluids, or that it doesn't drain quickly. It absolutely does, just not as fast as promised. The company would have been much better off being honest, rather than lie about the benefits of something that is actually good enough already.

Does It Really Work?

Turbo Pump doesn't exactly meet all of the promises made by the manufacturer, but that doesn't mean it's not a useful device. In fact, it's extremely useful and has numerous purposes around the house and elsewhere. These include emptying the pool, transferring gasoline in and out of vehicles, and many others. It doesn't drain as fast as the manufacturer has stated, but it does drain liquid very fast and that makes it extremely helpful. The product doesn't drain every drop of liquid as promised, but it does a decent job. So yes, this device really does work, just not as efficiently as the company said it would.

Given that this is an excellent product that is widely useful to numerous people, it's not clear why the manufacturer chose to exaggerate the benefits of Turbo Pump. They would have been better off to win the customer's trust by being honest about the actual benefits of the device.

Retired Engineer

I love it. I am 84years old and I have a tractor that I have to fill with gas. I can't lift my 5 gal jerry can to fill it anymore. My Turbo Pump saved me from this back-breaking chore. It works as advertised.

This Pond Keeper Dream!

Got it to clean my homemade open-top percolator style Koi pond filter where debris settles on top. WORKED GREAT! The only thing that would make it better would be the propeller cover being threaded to make it easier to remove larger debris from the propeller blades, but it is doable with a small awl.
Love it!

Did not Work

Purchased the Turbo Pump, installed new batteries as directed, inserted it into an aquarium, and turned it on. I worked for about ten seconds and stopped. Reinstalled the batteries and it worked off and on for a second or two. Tried other new batteries. Sometimes worked when upside down but most would not work. I am returning the unit as defective. Good idea, just this unit was defective.

Clever rip Off

As most of the above comments stated - you can't see final invoice until you order when the total doubles with the shipping. And what the he'll is a $1 web fee? Stay away from this site!

RIP OFF

Just Decided to try the product. For $20 and a second one for $9, how can you lose, especially with free shipping?
False Advertising! Rather than a total of $30, by the time they CHARGE A Shipping and Handling FEE of $30 the deal becomes a RIPOFF. Nowhere do they warn you of the charge before things are automatically FINAL So here is your INVOICE! You have just ordered. Thanks, SUCKER.
I'm hoping Visa or the Better Business are.

Shipping not Free

Their site is cleverly rigged to get you to input all of your credit card information before they show you the total which tacked on an extra $30 for shipping which was 'free'. No way to go back and delete and now I have not even received it yet and I regret making the purchase as I feel I will be disappointed if they are screwing me for $30 right out of the gate.

True Facts

The pump would not pump hydraulic fluid out one container to put in another. Also the stopping sensor did not work.

No Customer Service

I was buying two. It showed three but no place to delete. I called the first thing the next day but I was on hold for over 1 hr. I sent an email. Later that day I called again, on hold for over 1/2 hour. I sent another email. Still no response. They arrived today. I have placed another call a few minutes ago and I’m still waiting. The worst customer service I have ever encountered.

Spot on! The buying cycle is anything but 'normal'. For instance: Do you want to buy another pump for just the shipping charge? No, you can't do that as the buy one is really a buy two at the singles price and now we are adding another shipping charge.

Do you want to buy another pump? You would select this option if you want the second pump 'free' by only paying the S&H. Instead, you will be buying a third pump with full S&H attached.

Do you want to review the order to see what you bought? Can't do that. You now have gone through the check-out process in one click. This is morally wrong and should not be allowed.

My recommendation: keep looking.
