    My pump is going fine by sound, but flow is shite straight from pump hose before any other connection ie: di vessel or hose reel etc.

    When my batteries need a good charge (ie after a hard/long day's use, which is not often :)), I'll charge over-night with a little cheapo 6amp trickle charger bought for £10.00 from a local car-spares shop......an 'AutoFactors' I think you modern-day youngsters call them .

    I also have one of these 12v solar panels attached to the sun visor, this is constantly trickle charging the battery....even when parked-up and not working :thumbsup:.....

    ps
    the idea for the 12v solar panel charger came from Damo (he's back on here now) a while ago and works great :thumbsup::thumbsup:.

    That sounds interesting, Bingo. So you leave the clips permanently on the battery then?
