How do you do it?
one cup at a time! lol
Could take a while :Image16:
Reason why I'm asking like me I'm guessing most use a submersible pump but has anyone tried just fitting a hose to the tap of the ibc instead?
yer this is what i use
this is slower at the van end than it is at the pump due to the length of pipe and high rising of it,
you could do but it would be very slow, then if the van is higher than the level of the water it wouldnt work as it will find the natural level.
Have you tried it then RC?
Screwfix do some very good submersible pumps.
When I worked for another larger company used one and in 5 mins we could transfer 100's of litres and be on our way.
Time is valuable.
the waste water from my ro goes into 3x 200lt barrles so i can use that on the garden, have a tap on them and tried to fit hose on it and went up the garden it was very slow and took more time than it did filling the watering can up from the tap at the tanks.
Have you ever opened the tap on an ibc tank to see how fast the water comes out?
I opened the tap yesterday when it was 3/4 full and the (head of water) pressure wash awsome. So that got me thinking about saving electric so could attaching a hose to the tap fill my van tank just as quick instead. :Image16:
I've just ordered some ibc tap fitting so when they arive will have a play with me hose to see if it works very well or not. :Image13:
yer it will work to start with then as it gets lower the pressure will drop off, but as soon as the level of the ibc hits the level of the tank in the van is will stop. try it out with a garden hose on a garden barrel if you have one
for it to work best the bottom of the ibc tank will have to be higher than the top of than tank in the van.
