The Professional Model Pump is designed for recreational fuel and fluid transfer uses as well as commercial applications. Developed from a plastic composite material, the fluid transfer pump is compatible with all fluid types ranging from water and fuels to even the harshest of chemicals. The Professional Model Pump, coupled with our patented technology, is designed for FLO-FAST ™ containers; also all industry-standard, large mouth containers (jugs) with a 3 inch opening. Additionally, the pump can adapt to industry standard 15, 30, and 55 gallon barrels with a bung adaptor. The pump has three internal vanes that build pressure to pump and draw fluid up to 8 gallons per minute. The FLO-FAST ™ pump is ultra-durable, made to last, and will transfer fluids fast, safe, and easy.

Operating & Safety
STEPS THE OPERATOR MUST TAKE:
BEFORE PUMPING & DRAWING
If you choose to pump or draw any type of flammable liquid, do not use this pump or system around any flame or any type of electrical motor or device that may cause a spark or static spark.
Always place the FLO-FAST system and containers on the ground or dock before transferring volatile or combustible fluids (ex. gasoline).
Never pump or draw fluid from a truck bed, boat, utility vehicle, or piece of equipment.
To help reduce static spark, the static wire on the pump must be attached to a metal object that is grounded on your vehicle, equipment, boat, utility vehicle or a grounding rod.
Do not transfer any fuel with an engine running, hot exhaust can ignite fuel.
Before filling any gas tank, turn off the equipment and let it cool down.
When you are transferring volatile or combustible fluids, never have anyone in a vehicle, utility vehicle, equipment, boat, or any piece of machinery.
Make sure safety tether squeeze clamp is attached to the equipment, utility vehicle or boat before transferring fluid. The purpose of the squeeze clamp is to ensure the hose will stay in the filler opening.
Always keep the hose in contact with the filler opening. (After you have applied the squeeze clamp to the unit that you are pulling fluid from or pumping fluid into, the hose will stay in contact with the filler opening, therefore dissipating any static build up from the pump or system.).
PUMPING AND DRAWING:
When pumping or drawing fluid with the FLO-FAST pump, you must properly vent the system. Turn vent counterclockwise (turns into container) to open vent and clockwise (vent turns outward) to close the vent.
If you are using the FLO-FAST pump with fluids that do not lubricate, over time you may have to prime the pump if you are trying to pump or draw fluid with a dry pump.
You may need to prime the pump if you are trying to draw or suck fluid from more than 7 feet away. (Each pump comes with 5 feet of hose)
The 5-foot accessory extension is for pumping purposes.
If you are pumping or drawing at a rate of more than 60 revolutions per minute, you run the risk of over pressurizing the pump.
WHEN FLUID TRANSFER IS COMPLETE
Carefully raise the line out of the fluid opening and let any residual fluid drain back into the system container. Do not set the hose down until all of the fluid has drained back into the container.
Place plug on the tether line into the aluminum tube to seal the hose.
Before removing the pump system from containers, make several counterclockwise rotations to pull residual fluid out of the pump housing.
Leave the pump on container for a minimum of 15 minutes to ensure any fluid inside the pump housing drains back into the container.
Always remove the FLO-FAST pump from the container and place the original cap back onto the container to properly seal and store fluid.
To eliminate any person from pumping fluid accidentally, do not store the FLO-FAST pump in the container. Always return the pump and system to a safe area where children / others do not have access to it.
MARINE APPLICATIONS AND OPERATION:
Do not bring the FLO-FAST system or containers onto a boat or any type of marine vessel to transfer volatile or combustible fluids (ex. gasoline).
Do not pump or draw any combustible or volatile fluids (ex. gasoline) from container to container when you are standing on a dock or a surface that that is floating on the water. This operation is extremely dangerous due to static spark.
Do not attempt to pour any combustible or volatile fluids (ex. gasoline) from container to container when you are standing on a dock or a surface that is floating on the water. This operation is extremely dangerous due to static spark.
Transferring or pouring from container to container should never be attempted due to the risk of static spark.
Anyone that has a plastic dock must take extra precautions and ensure they have properly grounded their system and their body prior to pumping or drawing combustible or volatile fluids.
After use, remove the FLO-FAST system from the dock and return the unit to a safe storage location.
Never allow individuals under licensed age to use the FLO-FAST pump or system.
Never let anyone use the FLO-FAST system or containers that has not read this instruction sheet in full.
Never smoke if fuel or any type of volatile or combustible fluid is being transferred.
Never place the FLO-FAST system or containers with volatile or combustible fluids by any type of flame.
Do not transport the FLO-FAST pump while it is in a container.
Only use the FLO-FAST pump on industry standard largemouth containers.
Pouring from these containers can be dangerous and is not recommended with a volatile or combustible fluids. For that reason, we have designed the FLO-FAST pump system to safely transfer these fluids.
Do not use the FLO-FAST pump on any container that does not fit the FLO-FAST pump.
If you choose to use FLO-FAST with any type of vol1atile fluid like gasoline, methanol, kerosene, or any harmful chemical, do not inhale vapors.
When filling a container, always place the container on the ground.
Never fill a container when it is in a trunk, in the bed of a truck, in a trailer, boat, utility vehicle, or on top of a vehicle.
To allow for fluid expansion, do not overfill the container beyond manufacturer’s specified levels.
When transferring volatile or combustible fluids (ex. gasoline) from a bulk source tank or at a station, always touch the container with the dispenser nozzle before removing the container cap to ground the static electricity charge
If any component breaks on the FLO-FAST portable fluid transfer pump or system, do not use until you have replaced all of the broken components.
Questions & Reviews
Customer questions & answers
Can I pump up from a lower height- (against gravity) ? If so what is the maximum height I can use the pump effectively.
(From: PDG Team)
Yes, we have had customers go up 5-6 feet from where the pump head starts on the container, which can range from 2 to 3-1/2 feet in the air starting point. It will be easier if you position the hose as a gradual incline versus going straight up.
Can I go back and forward with different chemicals. For Example: use it with fuel, cleaning it then use it with water cleaning it and going back to using in fuel again?
(From: PDG Team)
In theory, yes, you could. However, which ever fluid you last used, a little residual will be left in the pump head. Rotating the handle counter-clockwise will minimize the amount. Safe bet would be to have two different pumps, especially if your pumping chemicals and fuels.
