    Looking to buy a bilge pump to transfer water from my storage tank to the van. The pumps all have large diameter outlet holes.

    How can I transfer the water 15m without spending loads on large diameter hose.

    I was hoping to find a large hose adaptor to fit a garden hose or something similar.

    Any ideas appreciated. Thanks

    Some come with adaptors that are sort of cone shaped. The tip is for a 1/2" hose then it widens for a 19mm then a 1” etc. Have a look at machine mart.

    Then downside of using a small hose is transfer rate is much slower. A 1.25" hose can fill a tank at about 100 litres per minute
