    Hello all!

    I'm looking for a water transfer pump I can hook up to an ATV/UTV battery to use 3-4 times a day to transfer 40-50 gallons of water from a cattle pasture tank to a spray tank. I'm hoping to fill it in 10-15 minutes or so.

    I've been self filling with 5 gallon buckets for a bit now and am ready to work smarter not harder!

    As the water feature forum, I thought you guys might have encountered a situation where you need a transfer pump like my situation!

    The options are endless for under a hundred bucks. Make sure the pump sits lower than the outlet to remedy primer problems.

    Thats awesome didn't even now such a thing existed. Before we got out of the fert game, we hard wired utility pumps on our tanks with 12/110 inverters. Worked great and quite. Still use them for pressure washing occasionally. Havnt sold em they come in handy.

    I wasn't aware of it either, someone here on LS posted it up a few months ago and I saw it.

    One of my guys wanted to wire up an inverter, 110 pump, etc, etc, etc. Ummm, no way, we'll give this a try first. We only have water in our tote, so it won't be transferring pesticides.

    An RV water pump would work fine. You can also get a pump to attach to drill motor with garden hose fittings for about $10

    I’d just buy a longer hose. I use a GPI pump, but I’m transferring diesel, not water lol
