    Same situation I'm in here in California with the water rationing...

    Thanks Mike57!

    What pressure will this pump reach?

    37 gallons per minute max at 51 psi max... should be plenty for my occasional needs.

    It is very light, coming in just under 14 lbs...

    Dealer told me up to 10 hours run time on 1 gallon.

    I went ahead and ordered one from my local saw shop... nothing off of list price, but they are very easy to deal with and it's nice when you walk in the place and they remember you and keep a very big parts inventory on hand... Honda, Stihl and Echo are their major brands...

    To save some bucks, you can get a Subaru powered pump from Harbor Freight for something like $250. Does the same thing, also 4 cycle.

    These little pumps are best used for transferring water. If you put something like a nozzle on your hose, you will shorten the life of the pump, so I am told.

    Be sure to get a hose designed for suction to use on the input end or the hose will collapse.

    Thanks Pilot...

    I ordered the pump and told the dealer they can add it to their regular order to save on freight.

    I was wondering about using a hose end spray nozzle and if it would create enough pressure to damage the pump. Honda suction hose and strainer are included...
