    I have a 350 gallon water tank. Can I use my 6.0 hp craftsman pressure washer with this tanK? Or do I need a pump first then pressure washer. I guess what I am asking can my pressure washer be used as a pump? I need to water a large garden. I am filling the tank with pond water and the only way I can think of to water the garden with pressure is my pressure washer.

    thanks eric

    I think the silt & sand from pond water may ruin the pump on your PW
