Ask a question
- Yes, if you use a 12 volt battery charger, but the AC ripple might burn out the motor. It is a DC motor, and DC motors do not like AC. If you put a 12 volt battery, any size, on the charger, it should even out the AC ripples in the DC current.by miner79r11/11/2013Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- you'd need a an AC-to-DC voltage device like an automotive battery charger. I doubt that the usual plug-in transformers would supply enough amps. there's all kinds of gizmos out there that could work, but for little more $ just buy a submersible 120V pump.by mukuboy12/15/2010Was this answer helpful?

- only if you have a 12 volt power supply. your home runs off of 120 volts and will fry the pump in a secondby lintrixhar3/4/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?

- yes, but I don't know how deep (pressure) it can handle. mine is only 8" submerged. be sure your wiring connects are kept above the water or are water-proofed.by mukuboy9/15/2015Was this answer helpful? (3) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- yes it can run under waterby acmech19/15/2015Was this answer helpful? (5) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Yes, but if you run it dry, it might cavitate and not pump anything, even when the water covers the pump again. For best results, put a float switch on it.by miner79r8/28/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- the main consideration would be overamping due to low battery voltage. do not neglect to install the low-amp fuse recommended and don't forget to keep your battery charged!by mukuboy6/25/2012Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
