Is this something you pull and check on a regular basis?

I'm waiting to see who is going to be the first to rig up a tub with a float valve to automatically shut off the water when it's full.

at 1000 rpm the raw pump moves a bit less than 40 liters per minute or 10 gallon per minute. Add modest back pressure and a nice idle speed of 750-800 RPM the flowrate drops to ~ 20 LPM or 5 gallon per minute. Unless you want to rev your engine and make noise in the driveway the fake a lake should be more than enough to supply you engine

Pump curve a the link below.

I don't know how much difference there is in the flow between 1000 and 1500 RPM but at 1500 RPM it's closer to 30 gallons per minute.

according to the pump curve 1500 rpm ==> 55 LPM which is just over 14 gpm

Correct, and the same garden hose will feed any water supply in the same manner.... I don't see the need for a bucket concoction. However, it's each to their own....

Sorry, but real world testing shows it sucking up 5 gallons in about 10 seconds. This equals about 30 gallons a minute.

At full flow my water hose will not keep up with the water demand at anything over idle. Hence, why I use the bucket. It also makes it very easy in getting the AF in the motor.
