Genie Automatic Water Jug Pump Review

Are you looking for an electric pump for dispensing water easily from your U-Fill Water Jug? If you go camping, boating, have an RV or cottage, getting your water from a heavy water jug is always a pain. Yes, you can use a manual hand pump — which is fine for a glass of water. But when drawing larger quantities of water for cooking, it quickly becomes a pain. That’s where this electric Genie Rechargeable Water Pump comes in! Let’s check it out.


  • ASSEMBLY/INSTALLATION: There really is very little assembly. You just push in the spout, install the silicone pickup tube, and then install it on your jug. It works just fine on the standard 3 or 5-gallon water jugs, but will work on any jug with a standard 55 mm crown neck!

  • CHARGING: You’ll need to charge it up using the supplied cord for about two hours prior to your first use. Once charged, the red light will automatically turn off. You can plug it into a surge suppressor that has USB outlets, a computer, or you can use your home or automobile charger for your cell phone with the included USB cord.

    Remember, if it sits for long periods of time without being used, it will still lose its charge and need to be recharged. When the indicator light goes dim, the pump needs to be plugged in for charging.

  • SAFETY SHUT OFF: It has a built-in safety shut off after running water for about 1 minute. You can also stop the flow of water by manually pushing the button.

  • CAPACITY: You can fill about 5 of these 5-gallon jugs on one charge — that’s 25 gallons of water — and it pumps water at a rate of ½ gallon per minute.

The Genie Automatic Hand Pump is a great solution to your water jug needs. Perfect for camping, RV’ing, boating, or cottage life! This electric pump is super easy to use, there’s no lifting of heavy jugs required, and the charge lasts quite a long time; it should last enough for a week of use for most families.
