Smurf, how do you connect these bulge pumps up to power, they look handy to have for emergency backup

Jimmy boots, i have a 90 lpm submersible pump from gardiners to fill my Van tank. If I were to fit the trigger hose nozzle from P Freedom, does it make the pump cut out when its shut off or does the pressure just build up ?

Mine just keeps running even with the nozzle closed, but it's not much of a problem. I just get the hose out, put the nozzle in the tank lid then turn the pump on when I am ready to fill. Turn off when I have finished,

I have left it running for around 10 minutes once after filling with no ill effects.

 

 

mate that hose is as hard as **** it kinks like a *******

 

I love their hose mate, it feels really strong. I haven't had any kinks in it but I am quite careful when getting it out.

so you just add crocodile clips to the end wires to attach to your leisure batteries.

 

im thinking of getting one of those inverters so i can add it onto battery and use if anything needs plugging in.

That's one way to do it I suppose if you want to use the bulge pump powered by the van lesuire battery. I've also seen those same bulge pumps used to fast fill backpacks etc from the van tank too.

what way do you sugest easiest to use these pumps, these will be good to fill backpacks rather than reel hose if you forget your 25 litre butts

If i were to connect inverter with croc clips to my leisure battery would this be sufficient to plug my pressure washer in and use to clean a conservatory maybe ? Would be handy cause sometimes customer isn't at home and pressure washer is needed but no power socket ?
