    Like Cary said, sleep well. But, if you really want 3/4" garden hose, it's out there. That's all I use (except for some 1"). ACE hardware carries it, as do all of the big box outfits.

    Bought a flow tech from home depot. They had two, one was smaller that used a hose for suction, and flowed like 350gpm, the one I bought you just sit in water and turn on. Flows 1450gpm.

    Northern Toll sells both Wayne and Simmer pumps (as well as others, but I own a Wayne and a Simmer), both of which have served me well when I needed them. When my well died 10-years ago, I used that 1/2-hp Simmer to transfer water from a 30-gallon drum to my holding tank twice a day for two months! I still have it, and it still works. I gave the Wayne pump to a friend when he needed one to pump out his crawl space.

    Either pump can be adapted for a garden hose.

    http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...t_6970_792_792 The second one is what I would be looking at, they make a off/on float kit too and there are better ones with a bit more power than this one for a few more $, all the box stores should have them.

    The HF unit is not good for this, you want a simple sump pump, let us look for a link.

    Is that it ?

    Don't want to rent one, every time is rains I would have to go out and rent one which I don't want to do. The Harbor freight needs to be hardwired, don't want to do that.

    I went to walmart, they no longer sell pumps. My question is what kind of hoses attach to these ?

    Buy a new pump and get it running before the water starts rising. A new pump has all the stuff new so there is no garbage giving you problems. So put your coat on and have fun.
