    Default Venturi gadget seen on "What Is It?"

    Please, I need to know where I can buy one of the gadgets shown on "What is it?" -- episode #1019. This episode ran in our area on August 9, 2012.

    The gadget was blue plastic, and had a long tube attached. It was described as being used to remove water from a flooded basement, or such. It required no electricity; was powered by water from a hose.

    I was unable to find anywhere on the TOH website to learn the name of the gadget or where it can be purchased.

    If anyone can advise me, I would greatly appreciate it!

    Thank you, John. That's good to know about. Actually, we don't need anything automatic, which undoubtedly causes it to be pricey.

    After posting my question, I Googled and found the information for the gadget featured on "What is it?" It is called the Pumps-A-Lot and is from a company called G.T. Water Products. As a new member to TOH, I am not allowed to include the URL, but Googling should find it.

    I don't know yet the price of Pumps-A-Lot, but being all plastic, I'm guessing maybe $25-35. It is said to be available through many major hardware stores.

    Thanks, Dorrie
