    Water pupm question

    I've got a 1000 gph pool pump that I'd like to use for my recirculating sluice. The problem is, I have no idea how to re-wire it to run on a battery. I'd like to take it out on the creek but it would take a LONG extension cord as it is now LOL Can anyone help?

    Perhaps a generator from Harbour Freight, or a gas powered sump pump.

    I use a smaller pump with a finishing sluice. In the field I use a 12 volt jump box, and at home a regular old battery charger....

    Check out MarineMAx for pumps, I just bought a 1100gph at a good price from them. I dont buy anything from china its all crap and sure to break, everything from harbor freight is all made in china, I wont even walk in that store, its all crap, unless you like throwing away your money. Your current pump is made to work on 110 so hooking it up to a battery may not work, not sure but you could always try just by connecting one wire to one terminal and the other to the other, it shouldnt matter which termnal is which I wouldnt think but then Im no electrician. I use a marine battery with 28 hours life with my pump then just swap out my car battery and charge it up in about 30 min, the alternator will kick off when the battery is charged so no worries about over charging.

    Williamsingr was talking about hooking a 110v AC motor to a 12v DC battery.
    BAD idea.

    Get an inverter or a 12v DC bilge pump like the store bought highbankers use.
    Nothing stated may be true as far as we know
    Seek professional advice. Some items are limited

    So I picked up one of these pumps to play test and so far have not been able to find appropriate connectors to work with its 1 1/8 inch barbed port. Any suggestions?

    It's a bilge pump...... go to a marine store and get bilge pump hose. Or else order it from online.
    Here is where I get mine: Rule Hose - Bilge, Polyethylene (use the drop down menus for the correct size and length)

    The online option may be the way to go. For some reason this area of High Desert doesn't seem to offer many Marine shops. Was hoping for an adapter to make it more universal. :-)

    TY!

    You may also be able to purchase 1-1/8" hose at Lowes. But it will cost more than ordering online from the link I gave you.
