that's cheap even with shipping paul---- the shurflo pump I installed on one of the food carts last summer cost me over $200 and the supplier was less than 3 miles away so no shipping 

 

BTW-- shurflo is more less the king of RV pumps from what people tell me

 

Don't remember how many GPM

Sweet! I think you will be very happy with this set-up! Let us know how the install went and your opinion of the pump when you get it up and running. Try not to run it below 12.3 volts (no load) if at all possible. 10-12 gauge wire is best especially for longer runs. Congrats! Shipping is less than what I expected too. How long did it take to arrive?

I agree! They even make soda fountain pumps. 7-11 and a lot of restaurant soda fountains use them.

I have to go buy two flexible hoses tomorrow. I will use them to pipe the pump and strainer to the PVC from the tanks. (I figure it may vibrate a bit if only hard lined directly to the PVC pipe.) I can't wait to get this thing installed. Oh, I need a cut off valve or two, I recon, and a check valve. Dang, lots to get, still.

The dealer shipped it on 2-December (December 3, for us), I got it today, the 18th. I figure 11 business days. He figured 10 business days. I'm happy that it got here today, for sure. 

 

I have some auto reset breakers (you and I discussed them before, as I recall) being sent here. But, for now, I will use a 10 amp fuse and run #10 wire the distance from the bus bars to the pump. We are only talking about 3 meters, tops. So, 6 meters there and back, or less than 20 feet. 12 gauge would work, I think. But, nothing wrong with going larger on the wire, as long as she is fused at the proper rating.

 

Oh, speaking of breakers, I went ahead and ordered some ANL (including holders), Mini ANL (including holders), Type I metal, automatic reset breakers, and ATO automatic reset breakers. So, I should be fine as soon as I can get them here. I ordered each of them, because I have  yet to see them here - anywhere.

I have looked high and low on the internet, for pumps, shipping costs, etc. This company, by far, was the cheapest to deal with over all. No hassles, no bullshit, all business. 

 

I used to have a 31' tag-a-long travel trailer, with a ShurFlo pump. Never had a minutes trouble from it, or because of it.

At 55psi, that keg would do nothing but foam.

 

But, I can tell you what I AM going to run with it. This:

That is an idea I got from a pool water heater. It will be 60 meters of 1/2" black tubing, coiled up, similar to the image above. I am going to make two of these, pipe them in series, and push the water through them with the ShurFlo. Together, if my calculations are correct, they will store, and heat, over 8 gallons (~30 Liters) of water, each.

 

So, until I can build my thermosiphon solar water heater, we will have hot water during the day, at least.
