The remainder of my comments do not specifically apply to this pump or even to this specific lotion, but to any thick lotion and any gallon jug. I first bought the gallon jug (without pump) and tried unsuccessfully to pour it into the 8 ounce dispensing container that I use (which happens to be the Biotone 8 ounce container of the same lotion). It didn't work--too thick, air bubbles, lotion oozing out and down the neck and sides of the small container, etc. (herein called a "Mess"). So I tried a funnel. Still a Mess. So I put the gallon jug in a tub of very hot water and hoped the lotion would thin out over the next 30-60 minutes or so from the heat. Nope. Still a Mess. So I looked up pumps on Amazon. I found several types where customers complained that the intake hose was too short, or too small in diameter for a thick lotion, or whatever. So I ordered the Biotone pump. It works fine, but it still takes practice to avoid some tendency towards a Mess.
Even though the pump works fine, you still have thick, goopy, lotion going into a small bottle neck. If you don't keep the spout well down into the small bottle (or maybe no matter what you do), lotion will create an air bubble while filling and start to overflow even though the small bottle is not full. It's still a goopy process. But I think I see how to do it neatly. It's not the fault of the pump, and it will just take a little practice on what works for you.
I bought the pump to go with a gallon container of Nootie dog shampoo and it's worked fine. No dripping or any other problems. I haven't reached the bottom of the bottle (as some have complained about not pulling from the bottom) but so far so good..
Perhaps it's just such a cheap-to-make product, some randomly come out defective and others don't.. maybe it depends on the bottles you use.. I don't know. It seems like it may be a luck of the draw with this product, but mine turned out OK so far.
Dropping one star after finishing 1st gallon of dog shampoo with this pump. Have noted like some others that ~yes~ it does have trouble pulling from the bottom of the large-volume bottle when you've nearly reached the end of a product. For nearly a month I had quite a bit of trouble finishing up the last of the shampoo because the pump didn't want to pull from the bottom of the bottle (when it really wasn't all that low, honestly). On to a new gallon size bottle and back to working fine now, but.. yes, I did have an issue with it.
Family of five needs a gallon bottle of shampoo. The alternative was a hose dispenser like they use at the bar for sodas. Wait... call the patent office....
