    fortunateson I hate Illinois Nazis!

    Anyone know about these?
    I want to get one to bring water up from a creek behind our house in case the water is shut off.

    Thing is they're all 1" inlet and out.

    I really want to use a garden hose on the outlet because it's WAY cheaper and easier to come by.

    Also I'd like to fit the inlet to a permanent PVC pipe at another watering hole that I have in mind. I'd take the pump where I needed it.

    So, are these adaptable in this way?

    Also, are these ridiculously powerful? I just want to fill barrels, and I can see a hose getting loose and whipping everyone in sight! Don't want that to happen.
