SHURflo On-Demand Diaphragm Pump - 1/2in. Ports, 180 GPH, 12 Volt Motor, Model# 2088-343-435
Best 12 volt pressure demand water pump
Set up the first water pump with a cheap 12 volt rechargeable battery with a solar panel works GREAT!
Purchased a second one for my cabin across the road and had a bad discharge nipple which they replaced without any problems and it works GREAT!
**THESE ARE NOT THE CHEAP PIECES OF JUNK OTHER CATALOGS OFFER AS A LOWER PRICE! THEY BUILD UP TO 40 OR 45 LBS> AND SHUT OFF UNTIL NEEDED! THERE IS A VERY BIG DIFFERENCE!

I bought this product to pump water from the lake to a cistern. The Cistern is located approx. 25 feet in height above the pump. It worked great when the lift was approx. 5 feet (distance was far, approx. 25 feet, which is why the lift was not the 9 feet as described). Once the lake water level dropped, the pump was no longer working. I then bought a second one and installed it right beside the first one in series. It is again working like a charm. I didn't even think the 1 pump would work due to the height and weight of the water - Surpassed my expectations.

Pump ran for 13 years
Just had to replace this pump after 13 years of use. Use it on a 25 gallon pump sprayer. Can't complain on any mechanical part that goes for this long, and performs as stated. Not many products do that these days. Hopefully my replacement will be as well made and reliable as the first one.

I purchased this pump a month ago believing I would get a good product. This is a great product. This little pump far exceeds all my wishes for its size. Having a place off the grid I operate this pump with a 7.5 amp hr battery with a solar panel. It supplies water to two bathrooms, a kitchen and an on demand water heater in a shower house.

12V SHURflo Pump
"I use this on a portable coffee cart here at school. We use a 10amp computer power supply to provide 12v constant and run the machine off of a wall outlet. This in combination with a water tank lets us roll the unit around and sell anyplace we have power as opposed to a built in installation. The pump has provided very good service and it's low power demands mean we don't tax the inverter. I have not had to give the unit any maintenance and the pressure it provides is more than ample for our needs. The built in regulator means one less part I need to worry about. I also love how quiet it is, you can't hear it running over the sound of a cup of coffee being poured. This SHURflo pump has been excellent."

Great for the price
I bought this to use on my deck boat for the freshwater sink and for a washdown pump. It's advertised online as not for drinking water, but there is nothing in the paperwork saying it cant be. However, we dont drink much water out on a party boat, so the sink will just be used for washing things, etc. It comes with fittings for 1/2 inch ID tubing and the power wires are about 12 inches long, so you will probably need some wire for installation and the appropriate hardware for your situation. It has 4 mounting holes with rubber shock isolators for a solid mount. Mine is mounted on its side on a vertical bulkhead inside a compartment. Very quiet running pump with good pressure. I bought a coiled garden hose with sprayer from the hardware store and it will spray a good stream to wash off the deck. The only thing I would add is a small pressure tank to prevent pulsing of the stream... The pump is so powerful that it reaches the shutoff pressure even when spraying wide open, so it wants to cut off and on. You can get a small tank online for pretty cheap, so that should smooth things out...

Solid construction. Flow rate is as advartised. Only complaint is the hose connections. They are some size smaller than a common garden hose. But the adapting fittings were in stock in a large local hardware store for a few dollars each. To be fair - all pumps of this class have the same non garden hose threaded outlets....

Horse trailer water supply
ShurFlo is a well respected brand and this pump proves the respect. Adding a 30gal tank to my 3 horse trailer then setting up this pump to the Aux electrial wiring. Add a 12 foot hose and no more carrying buckets of water when parked in a field at a barrel race.
I've used Shurflo pumps on small boats for more years than I care to admit to and you can't beat Northern's price.
