    Could someone advise me on a decent pump to transfer water from a holding tank in my shed to jerry cans in my van please. At worst it will have to be pumped about 50 meters. Does the distance I have to pump the water greatly effect how quickly I can refill? The quicker the better obviously.
    Thanks

    Depends on the diametre on the hose.
    I have a clarke submersable pump with 2inch diametre layflat hose (machine mart) and fills a 650 tank from empty in around 20/25 mins.

    Edit : it pumps through 20 metres of hose
