    Is it just a case of using a hozelock splitter after pump and running it to two reels ? Would that do. Or shall i go the whole hog and use another pump and have 2 independent systems ? Can you comfortably run 2 x 100 psi pumps from one 100ah leisure battery ? Cheers

    As long as you have a split charger in place then yes

    split charger is so u dont need to take batter yout to charge

    if u arent doin alot of miles u will still need to charge if on a split

    also 1 pump will run two reels but u will have to have it set high
    it will wreck the pump overtime ur best soending the extra 150 quid geting another pump and controller :)

    Right I've just done all this keir, I went for the cheaper option and bought the 2 way hose connector for 2 men working on one pump then the next week I've gone and bought another pump, controller, di vessel, and another battery (I already had another battery spare), get yourself all this as I think it's Soo much better! Go onto ebay and buy (it's already to go)http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=321646951330

    Or by the same thing but no wired up for £150 which is what I went for. That battery you have will run both pumps and controllers but I found that a split relay will keep it charged as your driving around if you don't want a split relay then be prepared to bench charge it often.

    if you have a numax battery charger, or similar intelligent charger, just leave battery in van, charge it up with extension lead, and close van door at home.
    ive never took my leisure battery out of van in 6 months. i charge it every sunday. after 4 days working

    X3 No worries @kier999
    Or you could get a small solar panel and put it on the roof of your van or dash and connect it up so it trickle charges the battery I would personally go for split relay all the way mate
