    Default Best mobile water pump?

    Hi, Flojet seems to be the most popular water pump - have I got this right or can anyone recommend another brand of pump? Thanks for your time, much appreciated.

    What is the set up you are using with the pump?

    All I've currently got is the machine - on a worktop, water bottles underneath.

    Shurflo pumps are said to be reliable & more serviceable.

    Thank you. Without looking I don't know, but if these pumps come in different sizes, is there a particular one that would be best for just running one machine with? (i.e. what size do you think that I would need?)

    Is it a standard electric machine (not dual fuel)? If it is, it will have a high pressure pump inside anyway. If you running it from a tank you will need a Flojet from the water tank into a WTU and then pipe from WTU into high pressure pump in machine. If its a dual fuel, you will need a separate high pressure pump.

    (Apologies for delayed reply) Thank you for your advice. I am slowly getting to the point where I am beginning to understand the whole set up. Am I right in assuming that by WTU you are referring to a filter? If so, would you recommend Everpure or Brita or another brand? Thank you in advance for your reply, your help really is much appreciated!

    I always install the Fracino ones with machines - you would need a 10 litre one for a 2 group machine. It'll probably last you about a year

    Thank you again for your advice! Always much appreciated! Would you happen to know how many litres of water the Fracino 10 Litre WTU processes and what is the difference between this and an Everpure Claris head & filter set up?
