The best way to Pump Excess Water from the Yard
Shake siphons are a smart choice for transferring liquids from one place to another without the use of power. A shake siphon contains a check valve which allows water to flow through in one direction so it does not lose its suction. Pumping excess water out of the lawn in this manner is safe, can be performed without the need to elevate electric wires and extension cords, and there is no electric pump involved to supervise.
Insert the small end of a shake siphon hose on a garden hose adaptor. Water exits on a shake siphon from this clear ending. Press the hose firmly on the adapter.
Screw a garden hose clockwise on the opposite, threaded end of this adaptor.
Place the loose end of the garden hose in the area in which you want the water to drain.
Insert the steel end of this shake siphon to a pool of water from your lawn. Hold the siphon under water amount and shake it up and down vigorously a few times. When the siphon starts working you will see water flowing through the clear hose, in the garden hose and outside to a drainage area.
Lay the metal end of the siphon horizontally in the water puddle once it drains nearly completely to siphon from the last remaining water.
Boost the metal end of the siphon out of a puddle to halt the circulation of water. You can reposition the garden hose to another place, insert the end, shake it and start the transfer process in a new place.
Remove the adapter and garden hose from the shake siphon. Hold the metal end of the siphon up from the air and permit all water to drain before storing the tool. This procedure will keep mold and mildew from forming in the hose.
