    It would work, a plunger and a wet sponge will work too. The question is what is more efficient. I think the shop vac.

      as far as bilge pumps go...

      there is nothing more efficient than a man knee deep in water with a bucket

      i have a small wet vac.

        bilge pumps sometimes leave some water & wet/dry vacs are cool
        but if im trying to fly through a toilet replacement,
        id rather not have to make an extra trip banging vac around house to suck out bowl & tank
        i use a good tile sponge to get water in tank, then bowl, then to caulk after install
        & i eat a turkey sandwich before washing

            When I work on a toilet, I suck it dry with my DeWalt 2 gallon shop vac. It's light, fast, and battery powered so you don't need an outlet near by.

              I would use this for sucking the water out of meter boxes or from holes I have dug to make repairs on water services

              Not on toilets, it won't suck it all dry and are you going to hold a bucket to catch the water?

              Shop vacs are the best for toilets, these are excellent for meter boxes etc.

                I have that same hand bilge pump, but from West Marine. I use it all of the time to pump-out meter crocks and sometimes to empty toilets, but it does still leave a little water in the bowl. It will suck-up the nasties left in a bowl that won't flush -- you know -- when you have to pull a toilet to snake. I will usually pump the nasties into a bucket, but the hose is usually long enough to pump "clean" water into a sink, shower or tub. It gets enough water out of the bowl where you don't have to be so careful carrying it out if you are doing a replacement. It's definitely worth the twenty bucks you'll spend on it.
