    you want deep cycle due to the constant discharging etc, normal car battery when flat is dead.
    the higher the aH the longer it will last

    yup you go deep Cycle and the higher the amp hour the longer the battery will keep your pumps running just ensure you connect the battery correctly and if its not a 12V or 24V watt inverter

    hey,go gel if you can ,it last way way longer ,but they are pricey ,also very very safe ,otherwise deep cycle ,deep cycle can recover from a total dead stage ,get a lekker smart charger ,600w is lekker just for thank ,watch as you get bigger ,you 2 batteries ,friend does a 1050w that still uses 1 battery

    I use a 105ah deep cycle with a mr power 800w inverter with has the built in fans for continous use and trickle charges the battery when not in use. My dc6000 pump draws abt 5A from the battery so should last abt +-20hrs so 70ah about 14hrs. I prefer the 105ah/102ah as i run my tv and a light. get abt 2.5hrs to 3hrs out of it.
