get what you pay for
Extension pipes screw together to form handle, aluminium with plastic ends which are not well glued, mine came off and I had to hot melt glue them back on. The instructions tell you to assemble it incorrectly

The Camel Salesman
The pump itself is good. Manual inadequate.
The pump works very well but I experienced some issues assembling.
I assembled as per the instruction book and it didn't work.
Looking at some previous reviews I suspect some folk, not being able to resolve the issue, have returned the item for the same reasons.
I tried contacting Draper customer services but they took a long time getting back.
In desperation, I tried switching the hose fitting and the extension post - lo and behold: it worked.
When Draper did get back, they said to switch the pipes as I had done.
Apparently the photo in manual is wrong - DOH!!!
The other issue I had was the moulding on the top which is basically there just a hose connector - you're supposed to connect the supplied short length of hose from the outlet of the pump to it, enabling you to connect a long hose without having to lift the pump out. The quality of the moulding is so poor that even if you can get them on, the hose fittings won't stay on.
I connected the hose direct to the pump & cable-tied it to the "handle"
I am now quite happy with the set up and it is working fine.
I think if I was buying again, I might pay a bit more for a better one.
The other thought after the event was to maybe go for an external pump and just connect it straight onto the tap.
It's also interesting that the Draper site has reviews on it but you can't leave a review! So where do they get their reviews from?!!

Poor design in handle
Handle did not come attached to tube, when put onto tube water came through this and not the 2nd hose,handle had apparently originally been glued to tube and was not watertight. I do not see how on this fixing the handle would support hose and water through them on both sides and stay there. Refunded not willing to accept replacement with this design, needs to be water tight by way of screw fixing to my mind.

Good product but poor service.
Item delivered on time, but soon found pump was second hand and not working. Returned to store but guy said could not change as already used and contaminated. Of course it was, someone had previously tried it and found it U/S! Pump changed after long argument. Many differences between pump and manual/instructions, but works well.
