I’m starting this thread as a spin-off of the info @Racer posted about his gas powered pump on that hotel access thread. (All you thread derailers, take a lesson from this!!)
I’ve been wanting to set up something other than my 12-volt system for several years now, and I don’t know much about the gas powered pumps. I like the thought of an aodd, but the expense and the amount of space they take up are turn-offs for me.
I’m interested in setting up a small skid I could keep in a pickup bed, and a gas powered pump seems like a good candidate for that.
My biggest questions are:
- How badly does it foam when recirculating?
- How adjustable is the output? (Can you go from a fine mist to a flood just by changing nozzles and/or feathering the trigger, or do you have to adjust other things too?)
- Udor’s chem pumps don’t seem to have the best reputation for use with SH… @Racer With the pump that came on your setup, what maintenance is required on the pump itself, and do you foresee any major pump component failures? (I assume you would plan on replacing the pump at some point, but I’d hate to have one start leaking or something like that and rot a pickup to pieces)
Thank you, in advance, for the info!
