    This is a link to the pump I have used for my multisluice. It is an Atwood (Tsunami series) 1200 gph pump. They are all 'cheap china pumps' , but this is built better, and costs about $27 bucks if I remember correctly. Cheaper than the Rule, better balance than the $16 blue pump, and draws only 3.0 amps. That is important if you plan on running in field mode with a smaller battery. The 6.0 amp one killed one my smaller batteries (I didn't realize it drew that many amps - my fault).

    To put the amp draw in context, but jump Rule 3700 GPH pump draws about 13 amps. 3.0 is about right, 6.0 amps is too much for what its putting out. Just my opinion.

    The Multisluice is great. love it. One of the best pieces of prospecting equipment I own!

    Success!!! Today I ran the Multi-Sluice with the 3amp pump all day with my 100watt Renogy Solar Suitcase keeping the battery charged with no problems. I tried the 6amp pump that came with it and it just blew fuses... So the cheap Chinese pump as Doc calls it, didn't work out... But the 3amp was definitely a crowd pleaser

    SOLD! Haha ive been trying to upgrade my equipment but I have no idea what to look for when it comes to a sluice. I want to set the multi sluice as a high banker just because sluices are illegal in my area, and i really want to test out this new spot with a lot of shovels. Thanks for the review cheers.

    So I ran my battery by itself today with the 3amp pump and it ran for just over 4 hours before the power started going down. The battery says 26 to 35 amp hours, so being that it will run all day on the Solar panel, I'm happy. The battery comes with 7.5amp fuses, so I know that it wasn't pulling that much, but it was definitely pulling more then the 3 amps. I'm thinking that it was pulling around 5.5amps because I did hook up a 5amp charger to it after it died and it ran fine but was slowly discharging at the same time. This could also have been from the amount of mud in the water towards the end also because I did almost fill the bin with sediment and it was to close to the pump at the end of the day. But hey, I'm experimenting Either way, the pump ran fine though it was pulling more then 3amps and I did have to clean roots out of the impeller once and the water was chocolate when it started getting dark tonight. I ran it for about 5-1/2 hours today with the battery charger hooked up for the last hour.
    Being that the battery weighs about 4lbs, makes everything easy to carry all together with the heaviest part being the solar Suitcase when I need to use it. But with a 4 hour run time on the battery, that's more then enough for me on a day trip.

    I know this is an old one coming back up, but I was impressed with this unit. Not only for how quickly I could run the material through it but also what I did not find in pan after pan of tailings coming off the end. Doc did his homework on this one.

    Do you just use it to clean up cons or do you also run raw pay dirt?

    I've switched mine up a bit, being that the Gold Fox extreme runs exactly the same size and configuration of Gold Hog mats. So I can now put the multisluice head into my extreme box and change the pump out to the 800gph for concentrating, or run the 2000gph pump with the trommel. I combined the two because the boxes are the same and left the original multisluice box in storage. Changing from the trommel to the multisluice is simply plug and play

    Just for clean up. I use the highbanker or mini trommel for the raw pay.
