    They are generally referred to as a "Pump Box". Different people make them and just like the individual components that you build into a van mount - quality depends on the components in the box.

    They can be exactly the same items as a van mount except in one box. So, are the same quality and do the same thing. The biggest difference is often the battery… you don't usually have a large heavy battery in a pump box. Whereas you could have up to a 110ah leisure battery in a van install.

    Some people say that you should just get a full van install, though personally I don't have a problem with them.

    Things to take note of though…

    What are the components in the pump box - pump, flow control and battery.

    You probably won't wire it up with a split relay charge from your vehicle, so you will need to re-charge the battery in the house regularly. How regularly depends on the amount you do end the battery capacity.

    This is pretty expensive but I bought one about a year ago before I found out was cheaper to make one. Stays in the van & reaches 3rd floor flats with 100m of hose on 2nd setting. Has 5 settings in all & a battery metere. Just carry it out at night.
