Had to glue the barrel to the top.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Tried the pump out and it was drawing air in at where the gray barrel meets the black plastic outlet and pumping water out. I superglued it and that fixed the air/water leak and now the pump works fairly well. If you have superglue around then this might be a good pump for various uses. I had to pump out a cover that filled with water and you can start pumping with this transfer pump and if you can put the hose lower than the water, it will then self-siphon. I had planned on transferring fuel from one boat to another and glad I pumped water first. With the leak I would have had fuel spraying out of the leak and that could have been dangerous. Considering the price, this is a really cheaply made transfer pump. I would also strongly recommend trying the pump out with water first before ever transferring any flammable liquids.

I did have a problem as noted in my review but fixed it myself as I needed the pump to work right then. I didn't have time to email, wait, hope and maybe get a replacement.
I would suggest random sample quality testing and reviews of all your assembly procedures.
The other aspect about this pump that I don't like is the hose, it is was too stiff and will not uncurl making it difficult to use in certain applications.
