Screwfix mate, around £40. Mines already outlasted the two I bought from gardiners 👍

I bought this one roughly may 2016. Still works fine. Think it was on sale at the time for £30.00, but yeh most are around the £40 mark. 

 

And hose wise I got the one inch black ribbed stuff. Think it was £50 for 25ms or something. It’s ok but every few months I have to wrap a load of ptfe & then sticky tape around a small leak.

I didn’t realise it was a ‘dirty water’ pump till after I bought. But doesn’t seem to make a difference.

Go for one with a big Ltr per hour output. Get green spiral hose inch and a half from machine mart, better than black pond hose as that is quite thin wall and will crack in cold weather.

Get a petrol pump style filling gun nozzle from wintecs on about £10.

You can also get the green transfer hose from Screwfix which will do the job just fine if you only need 7-10 metres usually a shorter length of hose is just fine whether the cheap stuff or not. But you will need to cut a hole in the top of your ibc tank as the Titan pumps are a decent lump.

Is 1½" Reinforced Hose from machine mart ok for transfer ? I have the black pond hose right now but it’s not good in cold very easy to break. But I think it’s bigger than 1 1/2” what would difference make with smaller hose thanks

I also use and need 30m of hose the best stuff I have found is Flexible Pond Hose  I have had this stuff around 3 years now in total  it's really flexible and has outlasted anything else, the short piece of green hose is the usual stuff which splits and black stuff is 2x 15m lengths joined together and yes that's 30m crammed and squashed down the side and that's what happens every work day and its never split, buy the hose joiner also and just tape together, I usually use cheap black electrical tape.

I started of with pond hose and the one I had did not last as soon as the weather started going colder.
I'm sure there's differing quality the one I had came of eBay, However I'm sure an aquatic center would be better quality.
Since replacing with the machine mart transfer hose I've had no problems whatever the temperature. [emoji106]

The boys are all forgetting to tell you that the pump won't fit directly into the IBC. You'll need to make some amendments to get it inside. Cut a cross in the top of mine, peeled the 4 sections back and then it went it. You need to make sure you get all the plastic shards out if you're going to fit a shut off valve as they can stop the float from working and make your tank overflow. Once its all inside and ready to go you could potentially seal it with putty and tape. I tried this but it didn't work for me. I used a heat gun to melt the plastic back together and then held it with some duck tape.

It’s already been mentioned above.

The pump keeps going when you stop pumping. It's not like the pumps we use in our vans that cut off, don't think it does it any harm.

The machine mart transfer hose is much better, I've had no issues so far and the temp has dropped recently.

I usually switch the pump off after a few seconds of stopping the trigger.

The trigger style fuel filler means I can fill it to the top, take hose out and then switch off.

If your pumping with 1 1/2" Hose it fills up pretty quick, I'm talking minutes.
