I thought you said you had a pump?
Here is a good one for under 18.00 at Grainger. Couple this with a 20 or
higher watt panel (requires 1.9 amps) and you have water pumping anywhere.
Hard to beat the portability and convience of this in my opinion it beats
the grid anyday.
total cost about $200- one time, no wires, no trenching, quiet effective and
