    You will be happy with the purchase. Make sure that all hose clamps are tight and check them every so often to make sure that they are tight or you will have problems.

    Remember to flush the pump out at the end of the day or last job with at least 5 gallons of water and it will extend the life, I always do.

    Thad, the issue was lack of information.Mike Dennis helped me immensely, but somewhere in the lines of communication, a few things were omitted. The pump worked great for 2 minutes, then I heard a loud crack. I looked over to see the pump smoking and the wires on fire, cinged like a flamebroiled whopper. Per Bob, here are a few suggestions:

    1. The 12 volt battery needs to be at least 600 amps. Mine was 125.

    2. Gator clips are not recommended, as they can't transmit the voltage correctly. I used the clips.

    3. The wires need to be bolted to the battery, not just clipped.

    4. The pressure switch on the pump will need to adjusted to ensure constant flow. If the pump is whining like a little girl, then something is wrong!

    How do you know if you need to make this adjustment and how do you do it?

    these pumps come with the pressure switch already set so you'll probably never have to mess with it. if you are running two in tanden then naturally you would but that is not the case here. i would definitely get a marine battery and make permanent connections instead of clips. in answer to your previous questions about hose size i recalled tim asselton's flow test on tgs. he supplied a 5/8 hose and a 1/2 hose both 200 feet using the same size input on both. on this particular test he got 11gpm out of the 5/8 and 9gpm out of the 1/2. i feel like either way you go you'll be happy. i'm not sure what type of hose you have (polybraided clear or ag), but i am using black ag quality hose. the only problem that i have encountered with this hose is sometimes my spray will come out black until it is flushed out of the line. i was softwashing once and it sure looked ugly on white vinyl siding. it washed off fine but it made me a little nervous at first. i am going to switch over to polybraid at my earliest convenience.

    good luck with the new toy,
