12V Washdown Pump

Does anyone have a used 12V Washdown Pump hanging around that they want to sell?
Something like a Shurflo Blaster etc.
They seem to be specced at @45PSI and @15-20LPM.

Unfortunately Bilge pumps etc donít have the pressure as well as the volume required, and a new one is well out of budget for myself and the smaller Nashers project.

Any other options for high volume, high pressure 12V pump would be appreciated.
Iíve ruled out compressed Air for various reasons.

Thanks

Nasher.

Hi Nasher,
what pressure does a Landrover discovery headlamp washer pump create?
I had one i played around with and it had a 1/2 inch outlet and seemed to shift a lot of water and squirt it a fair way..... they seem to go for about tuppence at autojumbles.

Nasher,I tried out that pump I showed you the other day. It's definitely not quite enough, knowing what the project is trying to do.

However, there's a guy on Ebay selling something else that may be of use-25 litre food grade water containers with a hozelock fitting on the outlet tap. I picked one up for washdowns and it works quite well.

Thanks all.

Iím planning on having a good trawl around the Beaulieu Jumble next Sunday to see what I can find, but thought Iíd ask on here first.

Nos knows what Iím up to, but it needs to surprise somebody so I canít say too much.

I got hold of a boat/caravan domestic water pump a couple of months ago, but unfortunately it just didnít have enough grunt, and a windscreen washer pump wonít shift enough water.

The Nomad 12V pressure washer is a great piece of kit, which Iíd already found, but weíre in the £25 bracket, so itís way out of our league to use as a power source.

Nos, the 25l containers look good, Iíll probably pick one up for camping anyway.

The sort of kit we need does exist, Shurflo is just one make:
ProBlasterô Washdown Pump - SHURflo
but they are just too expensive, so Iím looking for a second-hand one.

Nasher.
