Ryobi R18TP ONE+ 18v Cordless Transfer Pump
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
The Ryobi ONE+ Tool range is a range of 18v tools you can buy knowing that batteries are compatible with all tools in that range. Buying a Ryobi ONE+ Tool means that once you have bought into the range & own a few batteries & charger, you will be able to buy "body" only versions. These are tools available without a battery & charger which will be compatible with your current batteries & charger. In some cases a tools will be displayed as 36v but still use 2 x 18v batteries and is thus still part of the ONE+ Tool range but with the added benefit of a more powerful motor.
With a choice of over 125 body only tools & a number of different AH batteries the Ryobi ONE+ range offers a complete solution with significant savings for your pocket.
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Could the pump be used to pump water from a water butt on an allotment allowing me to water with a hosepipe? I currently have to submerge a watering can and essentially hand carry water to the plants.
A : Hi Chris, the user manual states that the pump should only be used for clearing out flooded areas but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work for that application, as long as the conditions were within its capabilities and it wasn't used continuously.
Q : If a tap is added to the outlet would the pump stop when the tap is closed ?
A : I don't think so, no - the pump is designed to drain a body of water in one go, rather than for semi permanent installations or continuous stop start use. If the pump is overloaded it is designed to shut down, but it then needs to be restarted and I can't imagine it is good for the motor in the long term
Q : Could I use this for dirty water? E.g a pond if I kept the inlet out the sludge at the bottom
A : I suspect that most pondwater will be too dirty for the R18TP as it shouldn't be exposed to particles larger than 2.5mm
Q : Could I use this to pump water from a drum to fill an ice making machine??
A : Hi Jaycie, the user manual states that the pump should only be used for clearing out flooded areas but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work for that application, as long as the conditions were within its capabilities and it wasn't used continuously. Note that it wouldn't be suitable for drinking water / food applications though
Q : Can this pump be used with saltwater?
A : Hi Dennis, I asked Ryobi's technical department and they have confirmed it is suitable for use with salt water / sea water. Many thanks
Q : Can you use this as a bulge pump on a boat? The issue being there might be oil or diesel in the water.
A : Unfortunately, water that contains oil or diesel may cause damage to the pump and would be against the manufacturer's recommendations.
