    I have an 84ah leisure battery. Leisure batteries meant to be better than a car bat, but u can use car bats.

    Depends on the draw of your pump...do you have a flow controller?

    I think someone told me once that a 100psi pump will draw around 5amps from battery, so it'd only last 4hrs...but I think the draw is a less if using flow controller.

    Don't quote me on that, but I'd defo go for the 85.

    How much is it? I'll try put a link of the one i got from ebay, 85ah, £56.00 delivered.

    I will be getting a 100psi pump and varistream..

    I will find out tomorrow I have a mate works in a garage that sells them so will hopefully be cheaper than anywhere else.

    it is a bit dark at the moment but i will look tomorrow if you want me to but i can tell you it is worth getting a split relay as well knowing you always have a full battery is great especially in the winter when it has to do the immersion heater as well
