    They will only be good for trolly or backpacks. Not really for a van mounted.

    its not the psi rating its the size and quility of the pump,

    i have one similar in my portable but the longer the hose i put on the more it stuggles, these pumps are not disigned for long hose runs,

    Rc no pumps are designed for long hose runs, they have not started making pumps for wfp the pumps have always been available!

    80psi is well enough for what we do unless you are doing 60 ft then yes 100 psi

    Like I said it's nothing to do with the psi, 80psi is fine, even 60psi is fine. It's the pump itself that won't cope with it,
    Why do you think wfp manufacturers don't use the small pumps like that on there set ups, and only use them in backpacks?
