    Guys, any of you use a Submersible pump for your IBC tank? If so what do you use, and what hose from the IBC tank to your van do you use?

    Cheers
    :rolleyes:

    Flotec submersible pump + 1/2 hose works well for me. Could use a large hose that would be quicker but can't be arsed to try one :D

    What tap? It's for transfering water from one tank to another via the opening of the lid so hose is not conected to the tap at all

    You can get inline pumps instead if you want to transfer water that way ;)
