Staff Answer
For every 12 feet you will loose 1 foot for every 1000 foot above sea level. As long as you are below 4000 feet you are good.

This pump will pump your 40 feet up and have about 20 psi left over but your choice of pipe will affect that some more. The smaller the pipe the higher PSI and less water volume. The larger the pipe the less PSI and more volume.

The manufacture specs claim up to a 12 foot pull that reduces by 1 foot for every 1000 feet above sea level. As long as your bellow 4000 feet above sea level it should prime fine.

This pump will pump your 40 feet up and have about 20 psi left over but your choice of pipe will affect that some more. Bigger the pipe the more psi at the end. Smaller pipe will lower your psi and flow rate. Be careful if you go too big of pipe you'll start to get sediment in your pipe if your water isn't perfectly clean.

Question

For pop up camper use?

I want to use this product for my pop up camper sink.
Will it go on and off automatically when I turn the sink faucet on? Also will it run dry? I would like to use it pump water from my rain barrels to my garden? Will it get damaged if it continues to run after the barrel has emptied? Thanks.

It seems to me that this pump should work fine for a camper. When you turn on the faucet it will come on and when you turn off your faucet, the pump will stop running. I use mine on a rain barrel to water my garden. When I release the nozzle handle, the pump stops, when I pull the nozzle handle, it starts again. I don't know about damage from running dry--I water my garden by hand and monitor my water levels. Used in this way, the pump does a very good job. Hope this helps.

Question

what type of power supply can this be plugged up to?

The pump says that it needs 10 amps max. What if I want to plug this into a cigarrete lighter or add a power source such as a transformer so I can plug this up to a wall socket. Do the amps on the power supply have to be under 10 amps?

No the pump will only draw the ten amps it needs, it is better to have more than the minimum.
I doubt that it will run on a lighter outlet, a better choice would be to hook it up to your trailer connection.

Staff Answer
The amperage used for this pump will vary depending on the psi the unit is set at. At maximum psi (50), it will draw 10.6 Amps, 9.6 Amps at 40 psi, etc. If you want to convert to run on a cigarette lighter, make sure the battery attached has the minimum amperage required. If you would like to run on household current, there is a model available designed for 115 volt electricity. See link below.

Staff Answer
The SHURflo On-Demand Diaphragm Pump has 1/2" fittings, and would not be compatible with a standard garden hose(3/4") which would lower the flow rate. When the flow rate is low the pump may re-pressurize the outlet faster than the fluid is being released causing rapid cycling, where damage may occur.

answer 2
Actually, standard garden hose is only 5/8" inner diameter, not 3/4". The fittings are 3/4", but you can get 1/2" to 3/4" garden hose adapters at any of the big box stores or plumbing stores (I checked, Northern Tool doesn't have them). You can also purchase 1/2" garden hose, but you'll still need the adapters because the fittings are still 3/4". This is what I did with my pump.

I think it would if primed but you are not going to get any pressure out of it. Can you mount the pump down into the well and push rather than suck? That would work.

This is an on-demand pump. Once you turn the tap on, it will start. If you turn the tap off, it will prime (to get ready for the next time) and then turn off.
