Great for us that have to pump once every 5 or 8 years. Nice because you can move the water a long distance without much work (just plastic pipe that is easily collapsed and rolled). We usually put an extra Jerry can on top for fuel and get 12 or 14 hours out of a tank. You need a piece of cardboard or puckboard or a toboggan and a long rope attached to it. Load the pump up and pull it out with a quad.
Depending on the size of the hole I take and cut a piece of hose about 2 foot long and slide it over the hose to the point of the leak and it stops the majority of the water from coming out the hole. I have tried the tape, but the hose needs to be dry and clean for it to stick the best, not something that happens that often when pumping water in the field.What are you guys using to repair the holes you get in the hose? I see the have some sort of tape.... any other tapes work?
I am pretty sure it will. I have pumped using the full 400 feet in a roll of the 6" hose and it moves a lot of water. 900 feet would be a little slower but only 4' head should still be a decent flow. Warm those motors up and cool them down and change their oil often ( twice a day) and they will do a lot of work for you.Hi would that pump , push water 900 ft at 4 ft head ?
