I posted this on the comments to this video.

Very Good Video !
Just REMEMBER to OPEN the Box when using the Pump ?
Heat can be trapped in the Box.

Well made video addressing the 12 volt pumping system setups Bob of PT,

The setup he is building in the video will do any roof cleaning or pressure cleaning start up justice and fair well and will last quite a while with proper rinsing and fitting maintenance I am sure of that.

I don't do near as many of these as I use to YEARS ago, unless someone specifically requests this type of setup.

Having gone on to Myers, UDOR, HYPRO, and now, primarily AODD pumps which have their own positive and negative characteristics also, but when these type of 12V pumps were an integral part of my past business and our PRIMARY chemical delivery system here are some of my experiences and thoughts on the subject.

I have built similar set ups in the past (Bob, of PT has a great design with the weatherproof shut off box and wiring in line fused connections, very smart)

For me, and I am not nearly as big or as well known as Pressure Tek, but, IMO and they may have some great ideas and products like what I am suggesting)

I have found that if you use a ROTO-ZIP tool and cut out holes on either side of a marine grade large platform battery box and install a weatherproof intake and exhaust RV van (for more air flow around the pump) you can extend Pump life substantially. Also, I have found that if you can use a heat sink around the pump motor for removing the heat and cooling the housing you can ALSO increase motor longevity.

Also if you either wire your pump battery to an inverter or run a wire from your car or truck battery to the back where your Delavan, ShureFlo or etc. 12V pump is located you can eliminate the trickle charger or killing the cells in your  pump battery by excessive consistent draining of the battery before recharging which can reduce battery replacement costs and lower overhead.

Just food for thought.

I hope my experience HELPS someone.

Have a GREAT day!

Dave

Great Video!!   That helps answer a lot of questions for newbies like myself.  Very informative on the correct way to hook up your pump and I love the set up to keep waterproof and safe.

Thanks for your time and effort on that one, it is much appreciated.

I thought deep cycle batteries could be run down and charged up with no damage to the batt.
Am i correct on this anyone?

I used trolling motor batterys for years, also called deep cycle marine.I did 2 to 4 roofs a day with them, the recharged at end of day, all night long, on slow charge. NEVER had any problems
