Re: Water pump

Hello Kelly,

I use a small submersible "sump pump", of the type that requires only
~1/4" depth to pump ("Simer Geyser" brand, ~$45, obtainable in hardware
stores). It produces quite a pressure and flow.

The garbage can is about 30-40 feet away from the tank.  If anyone is
something like this, I'd like to hear your solutions and what to look
for in
a suitable pump.
