Looking for a reliable geyser pump is a struggle. Many fail to provide the power required to suck out the water while others just hum around without pumping out any water. When I needed to empty a twenty-foot pit, I was desperately looking for something that delivered power and reliability. I came across the Simer 2305-04 Geyser II.
It is made up of thermoplastic, which meant that rusting over a period would not be a problem. The geyser comes with a garden hose adapter, which meant that I could move the water where I wanted to and would not have to depend on water being discharged to a single place. Simer also claims that the geyser is loaded with a pumping capacity of over 1,000 gallons per hour and their 6-amp motor promises to deliver efficiency. I ordered the Simer 2305-04 Geyser II and it arrived at my doorstep a few days later.
I must admit I was surprised at the size of the geyser when it arrived. For a geyser that claimed to deliver phenomenal power, the size was small. Although this was an advantage as it made the geyser light and portable, the real question was the efficiency. I connected the geyser to an extension at the garage outlet and immediately put it to work in the twenty-foot pit. This pit was filled with rainwater, leaves, and mud at the bottom. I attached the garden hose adapter, which was easy to do. All I had to do was screw it on. I then attached my 25 feet garden hose at the end of it and pointed the water to the direction I wanted it to go to.
Once the geyser started pumping water, I was pleasantly surprised. All it took was a few seconds to fill with water and the water started pumping out like a faucet on full blast. The geyser ran for over 18 hours and emptied the pit to the point that it was dry. All that was left in there were few wet leaves and muck. This was an amazing output for a geyser this size. Next, I tried to empty a puddle in my garage. The guys from this great website helped with their advice. The puddle was only about a foot deep. The geyser just kept humming without emptying any water. That is when I realized that the geyser had to be charged, which means that it had to fill with water in order to pump out water. I submerged the geyser in a bucket until it was ‘charged’, and put it back in the puddle. Lo and behold, the water started pumping out similarly to the pit. Do remember to submerge the geyser in a bucket of water for it to fill before trying it in shallow places.
Overall, I was very surprised and impressed by this tiny little monster. The Simer 2305-04 Geyser II packs a punch like no other geyser in the market. Definitely, a worthy investment to get rid of all your waterlogging issues.
