Staff Answer
In order for the gas can/pump to operate in siphon mode, it must be higher than your receiving tank. To start the flow, press the trigger/handle a couple of times. Once the flow has started, hold the trigger/handle until you reach your desired fuel level. Release the trigger/handle and the flow will stop.

If the gas can/pump is NOT higher than your receiving tank, you will have to continually press the trigger/handle until the desired fuel level has been reached.

answer 3
It has a built in primer into the handle.

Simply squeeze the handle/trigger until gas flows on it's own.

The end/nozzel must be lower for gravity flow to work.

answer 4
Just start pumping the lever on the nozzle. After about 4 or 5 pumps the gas starts to flow. Gas can does have to be higher than the item you are going to fill.

Question

does it have a vent mechanism?

Hi,

My gas cans don't have a vent. Does this siphon provide for venting?

Staff Answer
This is a siphon and/or pump unit and would not require venting because the hole clearance would provide enough air for the pump or siphon mode to work.

Yes if you attach a hose long enough to reach the bottom of the fuel tank. You must also be able to bypass the anti siphon feature of most cars.

This is not going to be the best way to remove the standing water and solids on your pool cover.

Although it is not as cost effective, I would recommend using a semi trash pump that we carry because they are capable of pumping solids such as small vegetation particles.

Please see the recommendations pictured below...
