Guys i have been reading about this 12V pump that can be used in power outages connected to a 12V battery. Can someone please point me in the direction where i can get one as i would rather be on the safe side and be prepared as i have heard that we are going to get load shedding in the new year.

I bought the smallest pump on the shelf for my auto top up and it pumps 1000lph. dont know about height. Ask Jacques, he is running one one a car battery permanently!

K, spill the beans Jacquesb
Brent - I got mine from the boating shop in Bree Street (Central Boating). It works fine as an uplift pump. BUT, Keyaam - just to correct you - I don't run mine 24x7. Only when the power fails.....

It has a head of 2.1 metres (mine in any case)...... It works a charm....
It's not the strongest of the lot that they sold (you can get FAR stronger for up to 10000 litres per hour - but these cost around R700)......
