With the monsoon Atlanta has been blessed with recently, I pumped out 14" of rain water from my basement with a Mag 5 and garden hose. You never know how handy this hobby will be, usually it is the tank causing the flood. I am kind of surprised at how much water 500 gallons an hour is, especially since my basement looked like a swimming pool. Apparently 8 feet of head height and 50 feet of 5/8" hose are not a problem for the pump.

Wow William, sorry that's the use you found for that pump, but glad to know you had it.

I use Mag 5's to mix water in my trash cans, and pump new salt water into tanks/sumps and old saltwater into drains...

Trusty pumps indeed.
