Seeking a Water Pump
October 18, 2011 9:47 AM Subscribe
I regularly need to clear out 15-20 gallons of water from a basin. What would be an appropriate pump for this, and what other accessories would be required? I need the water to be as close to completely drained as possible. There is a sink nearby to drain the water into. Specific links to actual pumps and accessories would be very helpful!

The situation is that water will occasionally fill a basin, but I am not physically able to lift and dump the water out once it is filled. I'd like a set-up to totally clear the water out. I know I need a pump and a floating mechanism, but what I see in the stores doesn't seem appropriate for this amount of water, and I am not sufficiently DIY-savvy to understand what I am looking at online. Many thanks.
