Hand pump ?


Recommended Posts

hi all just after some advice going to start using my back pack again, in the past I was using copper pipe with hose on end to get the water out the tank in my van. This did work ok but when tank got low this method failed.

Was thinking of hand pump would this be possible? it would have to be quick.Did buy hand pump in the past but never worked properlythanks guys

Sounds like hard work to me when you could use something like a 12 volt bilge pump.


Or you could put another outlet on your tank.



yeh smurfy another outlet at bottom off tank gd option

was using hose today to syphone oh yeh worked well all day

then forgot, next minute the water is running down the hill

it could soon empty your tank
