The Northstar pump could be used with a 120 volt to 12 volt power inverter. You would want to be sure not to exceed 8 amp draw for the pump.

Yes, you can use any 12V source that can handle a large amount of current on startup. A battery charger would work fine, or any other 12V source that can provide up to 5Amps or so.

The pump could not be connected directly to a solar panel to run it. It has to be connected to a 12 volt battery. You could use a solar panel to keep the battery charged. A minimum of 80 watts would be recommended.

I do not believe its rated as waterproof but all parts are equipped with o rings so I wash mine down and have not ever had a problem, having said that I will not use a power sprayer directly as you could introduce water thru electrical end.

This pump is not waterproof. Care and common sense should be used when cleaning it and it should not be left out in the rain.

This is a replacement pump and it does not come with corded switch control. You can buy the corded switch controller at parts stores that will pair up to the pump. I just buy the opposing plug mate then I just fuse my hot side and go through a toggle switch I mount on 4 wheeler dash to start/stop pump.

Pump comes with the internal npt threads on inlet and outlet and you convert to what you want from there.
The electrical is also a male/female plug setup and any parts store will have the opposing matching plug.
