Ideas for pumping out small water flooded areas. Please?

A friend of mine has been plagued by large amounts of water in her garden over the last few months. So I have been toying with the idea of buying one of those little pumps which go on an electric drill. The idea being that with a couple of lengths of hosepipe, I could pump it away in no time for her. At present she spends an hour or so brushing it away, only for it to rain again and she has to do it all over again.

But I think I will also need a filter of some kind to fit on the end of the hose which will be submerged in the water. Does anybody know of a filter that would do the job, where I could get it etc.? Or alternatively any other ideas? Once I have it rigged up I could leave her to it. She has her own electric drill.
